Only weeks after hosting the world's top conservation art exhibit featuring artists from around the world at the Artists for Conservation Festival, Vancouver is about to host another remarkable conservation-themed art exhibit.

On Nov. 27, the exhibit "Art for an Oil Free Coast" will open for just a few days at Performance Works on Granville Island featuring a film, book and art exhibit featuring dozens of British Columbia's most talented and acclaimed visual artists. The exhibit will then travel to Victoria, Saltspring Island and beyond. The goal of the exhibit is to stimulate discussion about the proposed Northern Gateway pipeline in Kitimat, B.C.

The proposed oil pipeline threatens the ecology of thousands of miles of B.C.'s coastline in what is known as the Great Bear Rainforest. The area is extremely rugged, is characterized by narrow and rocky channels, inlets, islands and fjords and represents the world's largest intact tract of temperate rainforest.
