"Experience the Art of Conservation"

The AFC annual exhibit is the world’s top conservation-themed art experience, featuring all original artwork by members of Artists for Conservation. The exhibit is a vehicle for engaging environmental education programs. Each year, a portion of the exhibit is available to travel to a few cultural and scientific institutions. 

Most artwork on tour is available for sale. Artists will donate a portion of proceeds to a conservation organization of their choice. A commission is available to tour venues willing to support and handle artwork sales/transactions. All artwork in the exhibit is original and by members of Artists for Conservation. Artists for Conservation is a registered non-profit with a mission to support wildlife and habitat conservation, and environmental education through art that celebrates nature. AFC artist membership is by-invitation only comprising approximately 500 artists from 30 countries and featuring many of the world’s most recognized names in the field of nature and wildlife art.

​In 2018 Artists for Conservation launched the "Silent Skies" 100-ft super-mural project, featuring 678 endangered species of birds. Unveiled at the AFC Festival 2018 in Vancouver, BC. AFC artists from around the world took part in this important collaborative project to raise funds and awareness to endangered bird species. Browse the collection here: The mural is available for international tour. Please contact us info[at] if you are interested in learning more.
