Christmas Offer – Sable Island Artwork

by

We are thrilled to be collaborating with Joan Larson, an artist from British Columbia who was inspired to create a series on the “Wild Horses of Sable Island”. She says that “no trip has moved me more than my trip to the remote and restricted Sable Island off the eastern coast of Nova Scotia”.

Joan has kindly offered prints of her beautiful pastels and a boxed card set to “Friends of Sable Island” as a fund-raiser. Take advantage of this special offer by placing your order on or before December 7th, 2013. For ordering information see http://www.sand.sableislandfriends.ca/?page_id=671

Proceeds from your order will be used to support our activities and programs such as the 2014 scholarship, public events, and educational materials which promote awareness and learning opportunities about Sable Island.

For more information about Joan and her Sable Island Series, see http://www.joanlarson.com/sableisland.html
