Zoë Evamy, a local artist who is a member and supporter of Squamish Environment Society, has been accepted as an Associate Member by Artists for Conservation (AFC), a non-profit group based in Canada that represents nature and wildlife-inspired artists from 30 countries. Our society is now listed  on the group’s website as a Conservation NGO supported by a member artist.  Zoë’s page on the website includes details of her support for SES over the past decade through works that celebrate the beauty of our landscape and our wildlife.

In September, two of Zoë’s wild bird prints (Great Blue Heron and Hooded Merganser) will be included in Pacific Coast Portraits, part of AFC’s annual BC festival. The exhibit will feature birds, wildlife and landscapes of the Pacific coast at the Nature House in Maplewood Flats Conservancy in North Vancouver.  It will run  from September 12 through September 30, 2023. A preview opening event is planned for the weekend of September 16 and 17, featuring live music, art demos, live birds of prey and First Nations woodcarving. Further details on the exhibit will be available on the AFC website.

There are many ways to support conservation. Zoë is an inspiration to us all to find ways to do so through our work and our passions. Thanks, Zoë!
