Calling All Artists! Reef Check to Re-Launch "Artists For Reefs" Gallery


2009-09-29

This fall, Reef Check (RC) is partnering with artists to re-launch the online gallery “Artists for Reefs.” The gallery was first launched by the International Coral Reef Initiative (ICRI) in 2008, as part of the International Year of the Reef campaign. RC agreed to take over the gallery once IYOR was over. The main goals then, as now, are to promote appreciation for the beauty and importance of marine environments among the general public, and to raise funds for reef conservation projects.

The gallery will include one-of-a-kind, and limited-edition art pieces featuring a variety of marine themes. Through it, marine conservation supporters will be able to support RC international programs by purchasing amazing sculptures, paintings, prints, photographs, posters and other uniquely marine works of art. In addition, they will support the work of talented artists around the world who are active in protecting one of their great inspiration sources.
