Please join me in my art "blackout" at Enbridge oil pipeline hearings.

When:  Wednesday January 9th,  2013, at 1 pm
Where:  Waterfront promenade in front of Delta Hotel, 45 Songhees Road, Victoria, BC

To make a statement on the proposed Enbridge oil pipeline from Canada's tar sands to BC's north coast, I will paint over in black this coastal panorama created especially for this occasion.

See Victoria Times Colonist article, here:  http://www.timescolonist.com/news/local/artist-to-black-out-painting-1.41974

"Artists don't flock to BC to paint portraits of Joint Review Panel members, or to marvel at oil pipelines, clear-cuts, or corporate mining company headquarters in Vancouver.  Tourists don't come to admire Emily Carr or Roy Henry Vickers paintings of soup cans or French ballerinas." -- A.H.
