A group of artists is making their feelings about the Enbridge Northern Gateway Pipeline known through an art exhibit at City Hall.

Canada’s Rainforest at Risk: Art for an Oil-Free Coast is on display until Wednesday in the atrium.

50 of British Columbia’s most accomplished and emerging artists have contributed paintings and sculptures to the exhibition.

They travelled up to the Great Bear Rainforest last June to see the area where the pipeline would be built and created works of art to depict the beauty of the area.

The artists are concerned about the increased tanker traffic on the coast that could result from the pipeline.
