 Art on the Farm - Plein Air Landscape Artists

 

For about ten years, Alan Mart of the Internatural Harvesters organic farm has spearheaded this effort to bring artists and organic farms together. This is Alan's idea, and now that he is unable to continue that effort for a while, the artists involved are pushing the torch forward for a few more miles. This operation selects a day, often Sunday, and sends the group of artists to a particular farm.

There the artist picks out images that are of interest and paints, draws, photographs, etches or whatever seems right at the moment, whatever image seems right. After a season or 2 there has been a benefit show where part of the proceeds from sales went to the Marin Organic loan fund, part to the artist, none to the group or Alan. The last such show was at Toby's Feed Barn during the Point Reyes Harvest Festival, a really great fit. This year we hope for another great venue to show our farm images.

So far negotiations and the search is still going on. Possible sites in addition to the possible Toby show are the Marin County Civic Center, the Veterans Memorial Auditorium lobby, the Marin Community Foundation offices, and Gallery Route One
