Several art pieces remain from the original Art for an Oil-Free Coast initiative. These, along with new art donations, are available for purchase. Some of these original pieces are on display through the support of Raincoast sponsors including MLA Garry Holman and his office in Sidney, Peninsula Gallery in Sidney, Hemp & Company in Victoria, Village Gallery in Sidney, Mark Penney Gallery in Ucluelet, Morris Gallery in Victoria and Salon J in Sidney.
With a collection that features some of BC’s leading artists, an accompanying short film and a coffee-table book, Raincoast is grateful to work with galleries and other business to promote events that showcase these fabulous pieces of art and our work to protect BC’s coast. We can also provide speakers to introduce the works and facilitate engagement with contributing artists.
Anyone interested in viewing or purchasing these pieces is encouraged to visit the above galleries or contact us directly. A Catalogue of these art pieces is available by contacting Raincoast.
Proceeds from all sales support Raincoast’s conservation initiatives to protect the lands, waters and wildlife of coastal British Columbia.

Become a Raincoaster
Giving to Raincoast enables you to protect what you love most.
For 25 years, Raincoast has been furthering biodiversity conservation in BC. Thanks to your generous donations, among many other accomplishments, we have been able to end commercial trophy hunting of large carnivores in over 38,000 square kilometers of the Great Bear Rainforest, begin acquiring forest land in order to protect threatened Coastal Douglas-fir ecosystems, aid recovery of endangered Southern Resident killer whales by restoring Chinook salmon habitat, and establish a university research lab dedicated to applied conservation science. Strong partnerships are integral to our success.
Our efforts need to be maintained and advanced, now more than ever. As the biodiversity and climate crises collide, your support allows us to continue to make tangible conservation gains.
Biodiversity protection is the most important gift we can give the next generation. Join us as a Raincoaster today!
