Great Bear Rainforest Exhibition

Mountain Galleries at the Fairmont Chateau Whistler

 

Mountain Galleries at the Fairmont in partnership with Pacific Wild presents

Great Bear Rainforest – an exhibition of top Canadian Artists

 

Many of our artists have made the journey into the Great Bear Rainforest to experience the wilderness and beauty of the Earth's largest intact temperate rainforest.

 

Maureen Enns, Doria Moodie and Charlie Easton are passionate about the protection and preservation of this area and will have work featured in this exhibition.

 

Enns first visited the area in the early 90's to photograph and study the Grizzly Bears along with renowned naturalist Charlie Russell. It was then that she got to know Ian and Karen McAllister, founders of Pacific Wild, the McAllisters were fundamental in the creation and concept of The Great Bear Rainforest and named 'leaders of the 21st Century' by Time Magazine.

Doria Moodie spent some considerable time in the area. She is passionate about the protection of the

“spirit bear” and putting an end to trophy hunting in the area.

 

The Great Bear Rainforest was officially recognised by the Government of British Columbia this year, February 2016, with the announcement that 85% of the old growth forested area would be permanently protected against industrial logging.

 

We will be celebrating the beautiful, natural landscape of the Great Bear Rainforest through a selection of new artist works, presentations by BC artist Charlie Easton and Pacific Wild representative Colette Heneghan. Along with a silent auction of special edition photographs by Ian McAllister, award winning photographer, with proceeds going to Pacific Wild Foundation.

 

Come see the beauty of the Great Bear Rainforest through the eyes of an artist.
