Helping Elephants!

Weekend for Elephants

Columbine Gallery

Loveland, Colorado
August 7-9, 2015

I would like to cordially invite you to the “Weekend for Elephants” Art show and Sale at Columbine Gallery in Loveland, Colorado opening this week on Friday August 7. I have several paintings and graphite drawings in the show, all of them represent African Wildlife and are from my trips to Tanzania in 2012 & 2013. I will be at the gallery during the show working on my latest drawing of an Elephant, I hope to see you there!

This show represents a special group of nine highly acclaimed international artists, Artist Ambassadors Against Poaching, working to bring awareness to the ongoing poaching crisis in Africa since 2013. These nine artists have pledged themselves to helping African Wildlife Trust and its efforts in saving the African Elephant through their art and donations, speaking engagements, museum exhibitions and gallery sales. They work to spread the word about the harm of poaching and to raise funds for African Wildlife Trust.

A portion of the proceeds from the sale of the artwork will go to protecting Africa's Endangered Wildlife. Specifically, this show and sale will benefit the Tanzanian Ivory Orphans’ Sanctuary, the country’s first official refuge for elephant calves orphaned due to poaching. All of the work in this show is available NOW on the Columbine Gallery website, you may view the show online by clicking on the “Weekend for Elephants Gallery show” below.

“Weekend for Elephants Gallery Show”

As many of you know this issue is one close to my heart, I have been on the ground in Tanzania and witnessed these majestic animals up close in their natural habitat. I cannot imagine a world without these animals. Since I first visited in 2012 I have personally worked with African Wildlife Trust and its founder Pratik Patel to help his efforts in saving the Elephants of Tanzania. With his dedication and hard work he has created the first Elephant orphanage in Tanzania. I have seen the donations raised at work personally!
With the purchase of one of these beautiful pieces of art you not only help the orphaned elephant babies but you will have a great piece of art to hang on your wall. You may also make a donation to this cause by going to the Tide for Tusks website and clicking on their “Donation” button.
