Artists Supporting Soof

AMANDA SUUTARI ART AND PRINTS - 50% of sales donated to SOOF

Want to make your 2023 holiday shopping extra meaningful this year?   

From December 1st to the 15th, local artist Amanda Suutari will donate 50% of every sale of her fine art and prints to SOOF!   Check out her work in her online shop here.  You can also arrange a visit to her studio located in Bridgetown by contacting her at  


Annapolis Royal area artist Deb Kuzyk has designed buttons to help raise money for the SOOF campaign!  The button features the Blackburnian warbler  hunting for a moth, with the words "Save Our Old Forests" along the side.  

Buttons are $3 each, 2 for $5 or 10 for $20 and all proceeds will go to SOOF. They would make great stocking stuffers or small gifts!  You can find these for sale at Deb's pop-up market on Saturday, December 2 or at the SOOF table at the West Dalhousie Market on December 9.  Details for both markets are on the Upcoming Events page.  

If you aren't able to make it to the markets but are interested in a button reach out to us at and we'll see what we can do!


Location: Exhibit at Kings Theatre, 209 St. George Street, Annapolis Royal

Details: 10% of proceeds to be donated to SOOF

Lichen can be found in most of the terrestrial world. They are organisms that emerged from a mutually beneficial and symbiotic relationship between algae and fungi. Further research has uncovered another molecule, sugar 400,000,000 or so years ago, algae and fungi became plant pioneers as they moved away from the ancient oceans onto land and combined: a pivotal move by adding oxygen into the atmosphere. The diversified forms of Lichen appear so connected to the shapes of archaic corals and sponges. Under a magnifying glass or a microscope, the structures, filaments and growth patterns are fascinating but strange, familiar yet not, and always profoundly beautiful.

Funds raised through donations will be used to cover expenses for the campaign, such as costs for print advertising (brochures, flyers, stickers) and venue rentals.  We prefer e-transfer
