The Raincoast Conservation Foundation has several art pieces on display at the Mary Winspear Centre in Sidney, BC until the end of summer 2014. These original works were donated by BC artists to raise awareness about the threat of tar sands oil tankers moving through BC’s Great Bear Rainforest.
The collection on display at the Mary Winspear Centre includes incredible paintings, carvings, and sculptures by Robert Bateman, Harold Allanson, Cheryl Samuel, Brent Cooke, and Craig Benson. All of the proceeds go to Raincoast’s oil-free coast campaign.
The book Canada’s Raincoast at Risk: Art for an Oil-Free Coast is also available for purchase at the box office.
Click on the links to see the pieces for sale. NB: The auction is over, but you can still buy these unsold works by contacting the office at 250-655-1229 or e-mailing misty[at]raincoast.org
