Pelagic Cormorant Underwater

Mark's Donation to Art for an Oil-Free Coast

Friday November 23rd, 2012 @ 12:20pm

Over fifty artists – some of Canada’s most celebrated and many who are First Nations – have taken up paintbrushes and carving tools to portray Canada’s fragile raincoast – one they feel is threatened by the Northern Gateway project proposed by Enbridge and their international partners.

The resulting works, combined with prose and poetry, are being published as an art book entitled Canada’s Raincoast at Risk: Art for an Oil-Free Coast.

The art work, donated by the artists, will become part of a traveling Canadian art show to raise public awareness about why this spectacular coast needs to be kept oil-free.

REFLECTIONS, the 22 minute documentary premiered at the Vancouver International Film Festival and is being shown at venues around coastal BC.
