IMMEDIATE RELEASE January 30, 2015
Spirit of the Red Pine art comes home to Sudbury
Wolf Lake old-growth forest show reception same day as by-election


SUDBURY — January 30, 2015 — Spirit of the Red Pine, a fundraising visual art exhibit by pARTners for Wolf Lake will launch Monday at Artists on Elgin. The exhibit is a culmination of work produced by thirteen artists in an endeavour to raise awareness about protecting the world’s largest and endangered old-growth red pine forest. The exhibit will be on display during the month of February. An opening reception will be held on February 5 from 5 to 7 p.m.
During the Sudbury by-election campaign, the Wolf Lake Coalition is calling on party leaders and candidates to commit to adding Wolf Lake to the neighbouring Chiniguchi Waterway Provincial Park. The art project is a fundraiser for the Coalition.
“After critically-acclaimed shows around Ontario, we are proud to bring this art home for its last show,” says show organizer Bob Olajos. “Sudburians have always loved Wolf Lake and they want to see it protected.”
“I recognize the immense healing power of nature,” says painter Patricia Gray. “Wolf Lake helps us connect with our own True Nature.” Gray, from North Bay, uses acrylic mediums as a way of processing and expressing her many and varied cultural and wilderness experiences.

About the Sudbury Working Group

The Sudbury working-group of The Media Co-op was formed to create independent media in the North, to speak to our issues and outlooks on our communities as well as the world around us. Independent media provides an avenue for people who are wishing to gain critical perspective on the issues that matter most to us, and to give a voice to those people and stories that you won't find in the mainstream media.
