2024 AFC Exhibiting Artists Announced

Vancouver, BC CANADA - 4 June, 2024 - Artists for Conservation is pleased to announce the 2024 juror's selection of artworks in the 17th annual AFC Exhibit. The exhibit features 200 artworks by 169 artists from 11 countries, including Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, France, Germany, Japan, Mexico, Switzerland, UK, USA. 

The AFC exhibit is the world's top conservation-themed art exhibit and sale supporting conservation. Artwork in the exhibit is for sale and ranges in price from $500 to $50,000. Between 35% to 100% of proceeds from each artwork sold, benefits conservation and environmental education, and each artwork is dedicated to supporting a conservation organization of the artist's choice.

To offer a greater opportunity for inclusiveness, particularly for artists who live in locations where the costs of shipping to Canada are prohibitive, artists were given the option to participate in the virtual exhibit only.

82 artists' works supporting conservation will premiere for sale in Vancouver, BC this September 19-22 at the VanDusen Botanical Garden in partnership with Vancouver Park Board and Vancouver Botanical Garden Association.

Many of the exhibiting artists will be present for the opening weekend for special events, and to provide live painting demonstrations and much more.

  • Brent Cooke - AFC Signature Member & Board Member, past Director of Royal BC Museum (Canada);
  • Michael Clawson - Executive Editor, International Artist Publishing (USA)
