I'm super excited that we get the "Art for an Oil Free Coast" exhibit up in Whistler for the start of March.

This was an incredible project to be involved in and for a great cause as well.  Raincoast Conservation Foundation funded the expeditiosn for 50 of BC's best artists to see first hand the area through the Great Bear Rainforest that would be affected by the proposed Northern Gateway Pipeline proposal.  The artists all did their interpretation of what spoke to them most on thr trip.  All the pieces have been donated to Raincoast in an effort to raise both funds and awareness to protect our fragile coastline.

2 short films will also be shown on the the Opening Night March 4.  "Reflections"  and "Ground Swell"

The show will be hosted at the:
 

Whistler Arts Council at Millennium Place
4335 Blackcomb Way,
