Artists For Conservation

Continuing with our trip down to Tucson, here are some photo images of the art work on display at the Ironwood Gallery within the Arizona Sonora Desert Museum in Tucson. http://www.desertmuseum.org

The Artists For Conservation is an international non-profit organization. Their mission "...is to support wildlife and habitat conservation and environmental education through art that celebrates nature..." http://www.artistsforconservation.org I became a member of this organization in 2016. I did not get into this show, the deadline was a little too tight for me to create a new work. This year I hope to be better prepared. It is an organization after my own heart, which is why I applied and was accepted as a juried member.

The art works in general have a percentage of the sale going to AFC or a specific charity to help wildlife and nature. Here are just a few of the works from the show. A side note, some of the images may be slightly cropped, the colors may be off because of inside lighting, reflection from glass, or glare from over head lights. The artists names, titles, mediums are noted with each piece.

Tania Drielinck AFC Chimp-and-See The Soul of a chimpanzee soft pastel on pastelmat $3,500

Michael Dumas AFC Fox Sparrow Study oil on Russian birch $2,600

Eleazer Salnz AFC Desert Paper oil $3,500 SOLD

David Kitler AFC Piece Keepers acrylic on baltic birch $12,000 SOLD note the detail on the inner edge of the frame
