Robert Bateman’s realistic painting style, featuring wildlife in its habitat, encourages the viewer to closely observe the natural world. Besides being one of Canada’s best-known artists, he is a naturalist, recognized by the Audubon Society as one of the 20th century’s “heroes of conservation.” He is a spokesman for many environmental and preservation issues,
using his art to raise millions of dollars for these causes.

The Lobby Art Auction is a series of four fantastic pieces of art created by Salt Spring Artists sold through a sealed bid auction, one piece at a time, throughout the 2016/17 Season at ArtSpring.
