A red cedar eagle sculpture, currently on display at the Black Tusk Gallery, has been donated by artist William Watts to non-profit organization Zero Ceiling.
The two-foot sculpture is being displayed in the gallery until it sells. The piece is priced at $450 with all proceeds going to Zero Ceiling an organization that reaches out to at-risk and disadvantaged youth by bringing them to Whistler to receive training as ski and snowboard instructors.
Zero Ceiling is also hosting a fundraising evening during the upcoming Telus World Ski and Snowboard Festival on Friday, April 8. The event will feature photos by Ilja Herb, Ian Hylands and Sterling Lorence and a short documentary film by Andrew Naysmith on a mountain biking trip to Morocco.
