Vancouver, BC CANADA - Aug 12, 2014 - Internationally recognized artists, conservationists and couple, Rob Glen and Sue Stolberger wll be attending the opening weekend 4th annual Artists for Conservation Festival at Grouse Mountain in North Vancouver. During the opening weekend, the two will make a special presentation at the Theatre-in-the-Sky at Grouse's peak chalet.

Stolberger and Glen are internationally renowned artists living their dream as the only residents of Ruaha National Park in Tanzania. As a painter with a distinctive style, Sue holds both solo and collaborative exhibitions around the world, including major city centres such as London, New York, and Johannesburg to name a few. Known for his dynamic and monument-sized bronze sculpture creations, include a public commission, one of Texas' proudest monuments and one of the largest equestrian sculptures made in history - the Mustangs of Las Colinas.

In 2010 AFC presented Sue and Robert with the Simon Combes Conservation Award.The two artist-activists live and work in Ruaha National Park, Tanzania, and specialize in depicting African wildlife. Since their arrival in the Ruaha National Park, Tanzania, in 1994, they have led efforts to protect and preserve the Ruaha river valley and shared a dream of building an environmental center as a base for environmental education and support.They are a remarkable story of two rare, dedicated and extremely talented individuals who inspire each other and those they meet through their work and their passion for nature and people.
