In the summer of 2012, fifty of BC’s most celebrated artists took a journey up the coast, into the heart of the Great Bear Rainforest. Five-hundred kilometres north of Vancouver is a wild coastline: Home to the Spirit Bear and whales, wolf packs and grizzlies, First Nations and coastal communities. With the looming threat of a proposed oil pipeline and hundreds of oil tankers a year, it is a magical place on edge.
This film, ART FOR AN OIL FREE COAST, shares the story of a Raincoast Conservation Foundation expedition into a stunning and remote landscape, weaving together the artists’ work and their emotional response to a people and a region at risk.
Project Monster Studios is a art studio/ gallery featuring mostly the bold, colourful west coast artwork of the owner Julie Robinson. This unique gallery space is shared with working designer Lisa Jewell, creating a new gallery experience in Tofino!
