Cowichan Valley: Raincoast at risk uniting B.C. artists
Fifty prominent British Columbian artists are picking up paint brushes and sculpting tools to protest Enbridge’s proposed Northern Gateway pipeline — and two Cowichan Valley artists are joining them.
Portrait painter David Goatley of Shawnigan Lake, and Collin Elder, an up-and-coming Lake Cowichan artist, have been invited to accompany well-known artists Robert Bateman and Roy Henry Vickers on the Artists for an Oil-free Coast project sponsored by Raincoast Conservation Foundation.
These 50 painters and sculptors will travel to the Great Bear Rainforest on British Columbia’s west coast, which extends roughly from Powell River to the Alaska boundary.
