From 2010 - 2013 Pegi Eyers organized and curated "The Art of the Turtle," an annual gala and art auction fundraising event for the Ontario Turtle Conservation Centre. Raising close to $20,000 overall for the Centre, she initiated the submission process, juried work from over 200 local and regional artists, designed the publicity program, created the exhibition catalogues and labels, and set up the shows with the installation team. "The Art of the Turtle" featured incredible support from artists, collectors, animal lovers and the general public, and offered a diversity of turtle-themed works from artists and artisans including painting, mixed-media, sculpture, carving, paper crafts, assemblage, stained glass, fabric design, metalwork, ceramics, jewellery and home decor. With love and thanks to the many artists who contributed to "The Art of the Turtle!"
Pegi Eyers is also the author of Ancient Spirit Rising: Reclaiming Your Roots & Restoring Earth Community, an award-winning book that explores social justice, nature spirituality, the ancestral arts, and resilience in times of massive change. www.stonecirclepress.com
