In its 35th anniversary year, David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation (DSWF) is delighted to bring a new world class art exhibition to Los Angeles this October.

‘End of Ivory‘ The Art of Survival exhibition is a powerfully curated three-day show featuring thought-provoking work that celebrates elephants as sentient beings but also highlights their desperate plight today.

Drawing on DSWF’s rich art and conservation heritage, we are honoured to partner with our dedicated and internationally renowned Wildlife Art Ambassadors – Emily Lamb, Mandy Shepherd, David Filer, James Kydd, and Simon Max Bannister – who’s mission is to raise awareness and funds to save endangered species through highly visual and emotive media.

Provocative paintings, sculptures and photographs created by our Art Ambassadors will be on display and available for sale at Christie’s Los Angeles from Wednesday 23 to Friday 25 October 2019, with a percentage of all sales going directly to DSWF to fund key conservation projects in Africa and Asia.

The exhibition opens to the public on Wednesday 23 October and runs until Friday 25 October, from 10 am until 6 pm each day.

We are delighted to continue our special affiliation with Christie’s and grateful to them for hosting this exciting exhibition at their Los Angeles gallery in Beverly Hills.
