The Artists for Conservation Festival 2020, presented by RE/MAX Agents of the Lower Mainland, is returning to Vancouver from October 1 - 4 at VanDusen Botanical Garden.
Featured at the event is AFC's annual juried "International Exhibit of Nature in Art" - the world's top conservation-themed art exhibit and sale. The exhibit offers a rare opportunity for art collectors to buy original artwork by internationally acclaimed artists and directly support conservation work. The exhibit will feature nearly 80 original paintings and sculptures for sale by leading AFC nature and wildlife artists.
At least 40% of proceeds from artwork sales benefits conservation and environmental education, and each artwork is dedicated to supporting a conservation organization of the artist's choice. See who's been selected for the exhibit this year.

Every year Artists for Conservation pays tribute to international artists with numerous awards. Several artists were honored in 2020. The awards include five AFC Medals of Excellence, which recognizes at least five outstanding artworks in the exhibit, two Environmental Statement Awards and two Best in Show Awards (for paintings and sculptures). Additional awards will also be announced.
