Artists for Conservation 2019

International Exhibit of Nature in Art

AFC's annual juried "International Exhibit of Nature in Art" is the world's top conservation-themed art exhibit and sale. It's a rare opportunity for art collectors to buy original artwork by internationally acclaimed artists and directly support conservation work. Most of the artwork in the exhibit is for sale and ranges widely in price from $500 to $50,000+. At least 40% of proceeds from artwork sales benefits conservation and environmental education, and each artwork is dedicated to supporting a conservation organization of the artist's choice. 

AFC produces a hardcover book as a companion to the exhibit, reproducing all the work selected for our annual exhibit. A portion of the book is dedicated to highlight the exhibit’s conservation beneficiary as well as AFC’s programs. AFC also features a selection of artwork from the exhibit in its annual Environmental Calendar which, in addition to featuring major international public and statutory holidays, highlights key environmental-themed dates, elevating awareness of critical environmental concerns. 

AFC Awards & Medals

Every year Artists for Conservation pays tribute to international artists with numerous awards. Five artists were honored in 2019. The awards include AFC Medals of Excellence, which recognize outstanding artworks in the exhibit, and two Environmental Statement Awards. AFC has also awards "Best in Show", in recognition of the highest scoring artwork (for paintings and sculptures) by the jury panel in the annual exhibit.
