Art for the sake of nature

Over four days from Nov. 27 to 30, art, cars, music, and nature intertwined at the OpenRoad Infiniti car dealership.

Free to the community, an exhibit hosted by Artists for Conservation (AFC) saw guests have one last chance to admire and purchase some of the latest original artworks by leading nature and wildlife artists from around the world. 

Accompanying the four-day exhibit were live birds of prey, music, and a chance to mingle with artists.

AFC is a team dedicated to generating awareness and stimulating discussion on an array of conservation issues and this year, a major focus was put on bears. In support of the AFC cause, OpenRoad Infiniti donated $25 each time an Infiniti hybrid or any other 2015 Infiniti vehicle was test driven at the dealership.

Live music by guitarist John Gilliat, live birds of prey from Delta’s OWL Rehabilitation Society and live art demonstrations were part of the weekend wrap-up.
