Bob Olajos of Friends of Temagami and pARTners for Wolf Lake has written a beautifully worded thank you to Artists on Elgin in the Sudbury Star. We thoroughly enjoyed doing the show together for the month of February and enjoyed the chance to partner with this wonderful organization.

"Sudbury letter: Praise for show, gallery

Recently, the pARTners for Wolf Lake held a fundraising visual art exhibit, entitled Spirit of the Red Pine, at Artists on Elgin in Sudbury.

The exhibit was the culmination of work produced by 13 artists to raise awareness about protecting the world's largest old-growth red pine forest. This forest is located at Wolf Lake, on the traditional territory of the Wanapitei First Nation, within Sudbury's city limits.

After critically acclaimed shows around Ontario, it was wonderful to bring this art home to Sudbury. Artists on Elgin was the perfect venue.

The members of The Northern Artists Gallery (the parent organization of Artists on Elgin) went above and beyond in hosting this show. Sudburians have always loved Wolf Lake and want to see it protected. This was evident from the generous support of Artists on Elgin.

On behalf of the pARTners for Wolf Lake, I want to thank Artists on Elgin for their support. Sudbury is truly fortunate to have such a wonderful artist-run gallery.
