Last Chance to View the AFC Exhibit!

Artists for Conservation's third annual festival presented by RE/MAX, sponsored by Deeley Harley-Davidson Canada has come to a close.  

Our sincere gratitude to our festival attendees, artists, sponsors, supporters, our small army of volunteers and Grouse Mountain staff for their support in making the festival possible and successful this year.  If you missed the festival, the AFC exhibit will continue to run through Monday, October 14  closing at 6PM (Canadian Thanksgiving) on Grouse Mountain.  

Join us on Grouse Mountain for your last chance to view our exhibit. 

Here are some comments we've received so far via email, social media and our tree of inspiration:
