AFC's Annual Exhibit of Nature in Art
The Artists for Conservation Festival 2020, presented by RE/MAX Agents of the Lower Mainland, is returning to Vancouver from October 1 - 4 at VanDusen Botanical Garden.
Featured at the event is AFC's annual juried "International Exhibit of Nature in Art" - the world's top conservation-themed art exhibit and sale. The exhibit offers a rare opportunity for art collectors to buy original artwork by internationally acclaimed artists and directly support conservation work. The exhibit will feature nearly 80 original paintings and sculptures for sale by leading AFC nature and wildlife artists.
At least 40% of proceeds from artwork sales benefits conservation and environmental education, and each artwork is dedicated to supporting a conservation organization of the artist's choice. See who's been selected for the exhibit this year.
To learn more about our mission, about individual AFC artists, as well as how to become a member, please visit the main Artists for Conservation site. Artists are juried for membership and only accepted members can participate in the AFC annual juried exhibit.
Each year since 2008, as a companion to the exhibit, AFC publishes a harcover book featuring the artworks from the year's exhibit. The annual exhibit features approximately 200 artworks selected from submissions by Signature Members of Artists for Conservation. These are featured in AFC's annual book and virtual exhibit online. Of these, approximately 1/2 are selected for display in AFC's live exhibit.
AFC's annual exhibit is accessible globally through a Virtual Exhibit format. All artwork juried into the exhibit is featured in a gallery style format. See the latest Virtual Exhibit.
