Photography Exhibition - Audain Art Museum, Whistler, Dec 8 2018

November 22, 2018

Nestled in a forest of snow-dusted trees at the base of vast mountain peaks, visitors to Whistler’s Audain Art Museum in early December will be able to view a unique, world-class photography exhibition in support of grizzly bear and coastal carnivore conservation.

From grizzly bears to cougars, Spirit bears and wolves, donated pieces tell a story of the importance of protecting carnivores in the Great Bear Rainforest.

Presented with our friend and partner Raincoast Conservation Foundation, this special evening aims to inspire and educate you on the importance of grizzly bears and coastal carnivores to our culture and ecology. Hosted in the stunning Upper Gallery by our sponsors at the Audain Art museum, you will enjoy great drinks and fantastic food provided by chefs from sponsor Nimmo Bay resort while viewing two unique exhibitions:

Triggers To Tripods: We will unveil the winning entries of our photography contest “From Trigger to Tripods” that celebrates the shift from hunting to bear viewing in British Columbia. Our judges, including renowned wildlife photographer John E Marriott, had a tough time narrowing down their favourites, and we can’t wait to show them to you. You’ll be able to bid and purchase prints of these photos directly at the venue. This fundraiser supports our work to ensure commercial viewing operations have a neutral impact on grizzlies. Proceeds from these donated prints will support our work.

One shot for Coastal Carnivores: Featuring world class photography, this collection supports the goal of Raincoast and Coastal First Nations to permanently end trophy hunting of all large carnivores on the coast of British Columbia. From Spirit Bears, to cougars, grizzly bears and wolves, donated pieces tell a story of the importance of protecting carnivores in the Great Bear Rainforest. Proceeds from this collection directly support the purchase of the Nadeea commercial hunting tenure to permanently end trophy hunting of all large carnivores in BC’s Great Bear Rainforest. You can view the full collection in the open online auction and you’ll be able to bid at the venue.

For those of you unable to attend our evening event, the exhibition remain on display and can be visited as part of the Audain Art Museum admission on Sunday, December 9th.
