TIGER LOVE AND OTHER ANIMAL STORIES is an invitational art exhibition that brings together contemporary artists with advocates for the humane treatment of animals and wildlife protection. The exhibition in Montreal, Canada, from August 8-20, 2005, showcases the artworks and celebrates the work of Born Free.

The Born Free Foundation's work in international environmental campaigns and large-animal rescues was a direct inspiration for this exhibition and auction. The works in the exhibition, by ten emerging Canadian artists, portray love, curiosity or ambiguous feelings inspired by animals both wild and those closer to home.

All art works will be offered for auction on eBay from August 12 to August 18, 2005.
For auction information, please go to the auction info page. 30% of the proceeds from the on-line auction will go to Born Free.

If you're in Montreal you can view the works at galerie nota bene, 3416 av du parc (map) from August 8 to 20.
