AFC Festival - 2023
Artists for Conservation Festival
The Artists for Conservation society is a leading international artist group and the members are recognized for their environmental and conservancy work through the arts. I was invited to become a Signature member with AFC in 2018 and this is my fifth inclusion in a row for the LIVE exhibition.
Again accepted for LIVE exhibit
My oil painting 'Radiant Presence' showing a bighorn sheep was selected for the AFC 2023 annual exhibition, held at the VanDusen Botanical Garden in Vancouver, BC, Canada.
The AFC Exhibit saw a record number of 492 submissions and had the overall highest scoring in the show's 16-year history. In total 200 artworks, which make only 40% of the submissions were accepted for the virtual show, and less than one in six from these works were selected for the live show, in an already vetted field of competitors.
It is a honor to have my artwork selected by the jurors for the fifth time in a row to take part in the LIVE exhibition.
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. The show premiers at VanDusen Botanical Gardens in Vancouver, Canada from September 21-24.
