BEAR - CIPOLLA, COLE, LEMAY, MARTIN

Presenting both established and emerging artists in this exhibition Canada House Gallery offers a diverse glimpse at a loved and revered subject – BEAR. Situated in Canada’s First National Park and a World UNESCO Heritage site, we adore all that makes our place sacred, and that includes our wildlife. Bears represent the whole of nature, and we cherish their safety, their habitat, their future.

Richard Cole and Robert Lemay have been anchor artists at CHG for years, yet the BEAR is a relatively new subject for them. We are pleased to welcome emerging artists, Susie Cipolla & Sarah Martin to the gallery and our collectors and show how BEAR inspires them in their work.

A portion of the proceeds will go towards WildSmart; a program of the Biosphere Institute of the Bow Valley, a non-profit charitable organization. Established in 2005, WildSmart is a proactive conservation strategy that encourages efforts by communities to reduce negative human-wildlife interactions. Their goal is to develop a coordinated approach to education/outreach programs and help support direct management activities that will aid in increasing public safety and enjoyment as well as contribute towards sustainable wildlife populations.

The funds that you will be donating to WildSmart will be used to recruit and train new volunteers for their Wildlife Ambassador Program. Come meet Nick de Ruyter, WildSmart Education and Outreach Coordinator, at the reception.
