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.

Help us protect KELÁ_EKE Kingfisher Forest
Together with Pender Islands Conservancy, we are raising funds to purchase and permanently protect a 45 acre forested property on the edge of the Salish Sea. The KELÁ_EKE Kingfisher Forest is located within the Coastal Douglas-fir (CDF) biogeoclimatic zone, one of the most biodiverse ecosystems in Canada. It is also among the most threatened in Canada. Protecting these forests is an investment in our collective future.
We’ve just announced a donation matching campaign to support the purchase and permanent protection of KELÁ_EKE Kingfisher Forest. Every dollar donated before December 31, 2022 will be matched by anonymous donors. This is a chance for you to double your impact!
