AFC's annual exhibit is the world's foremost conservation-themed art exhibit in the world today. Each year it assembles many of the world's top nature artists in a common cause for conservation. Following its premiere in Vancouver, Canada, the exhibit tours internationally.
In addition to a live exhibit of an expected 80-90 artworks, there will ALSO be a virtual exhibit featuring approximately 200 artworks including the artwork of the live exhibit. The purpose of the exhibit is three-fold:
- To support conservation through fundraising and education;
- To showcase the extraordinary pool of artistic talent in the AFC; and
- To expose the nature art genre to new prospective collectors in audiences outside the conventional nature/wildlife art collecting circles to sell artwork.
The live exhibit will premier at the Artists for Conservation Festival at VanDusen Botanical Gardens in Vancouver, Canada from October 1-4. Following the opening, most artwork will then tour internationally, including to the James Museum of Western & Wildlife Art in early 2021.
