ACTION PARTNERS – ART AUCTION is now closed.
Congratulations to the winning bidders.
The auction was a a wonderful success. When the first two painting sold within a matter of days, we added two more of Linda Lang’s original artworks and extended the Art Auction until February 15th, 2015.
Stylistically both paintings are similar to Linda’s hero, Group of Seven artist, Lawren Harris, and they were created on location in the Arctic.
Linda Lang is an internationally acclaimed expedition and climate change artist. Her paintings are based on knowledge gained from her Inuit friends, scientists and over a dozen expeditions to the Polar Regions. Visit Linda’s website for more information.
“Linda’s paintings reflect a profound appreciation for Canada’s High Arctic and the devastating effects of global warming on its fragile, yet extreme, ecosystem.” — Tom Smart, former CEO & President, McMichael Canadian Art Collection
Fjords of Baffin – 48″ x 36″ oil on gallery canvas – [SOLD]
“In 2008, for the first time, the ice had melted enough in the fjords of the east coast of Baffin Island for our ship to venture down. I hiked for three hours up to the edge of the glacier to see this view. This moment was life changing.” – Linda Lang
View of Bylot Island, 24” x 60” oil on canvas [SOLD]
An admirer of the Group of Seven Artist Lawren Harris, Linda has captured the essence of his work in this picture painted in exactly the same spot as Lawren Harris when he painted Bylot Island in 1930 — 72 years later, Linda created this painting, “View of Bylot Island (from Pond Inlet).”
