Baywood Artists


BayWood Artists was the first professional plein air painting group in the Bay Area established with the purpose of saving the lands that inspire their art.

They formed in 1997 and have worked with many environmental organizations as well as other non-profits.  The artists are from Marin County, North Bay, East Bay and beyond. 

Through an annual exhibition and sale at the Bay Model, funds are raised for environmentally sensitive projects. They also aim to raise awareness for  organizations committed to their preservation. Fifty percent of the proceeds from the exhibits are donated to those organizations. 

Past BayWood Artist exhibits have helped benefit the Marin Open Space District, Hawthorn Canyon; the Marin Agricultural Land Trust, (M.A.L.T.); the restoration of Bolinas Lagoon; the Greenbelt Alliance; Fish Friendly Farming; the restoration of Oakwood Valley near Mill Valley for the Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy; the Marin Open Space District for helping protect ridge land above Mill Valley; wetland restoration for the Marin Bayland Advocates; the Bay Area Ridge Trail in its efforts to complete the 400 mile greenbelt around the Bay Area; and the Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy’s Redwood Creek Restoration Project.

For 2010, BayWood Artists are painting to support Marin Open Space efforts on Ring Mountain in Tiburon.
