Mae Moore, along with other artists such as Robert Bateman and Ro Henry Vickers are working together to protect BC's wild and beloved coast!
50 artists - some of Canada's most celebrated and many who are First Nations - are taking up paintbrushes and carving tools next month to portray Canada's
magnificant Pacific Coast, one that is believed to be threatened by Enbridge's North Gateway project. Over a two-week period in June, artists are being supported
by coastal lodges, tour boat operators and businesses that have donated or discounted their services so we can access some of the most spectacular, yet remote
locations on BC's central and north coasts. Photos of the resulting art will be published later this fall in a stunning book. The original artworks, donated by the
artists, will become part of a travelling art show that crosses the country to raise public awareness of this amazing coast and why it needs to be kept oil-free.
