"WEST MARIN WILD" - Art Show at Pt. Reyes Ntl. Seashore Red Barn

Every two years, the Environmental Action Committee of West Marin (EAC) organizes the "West Marin Wild" art show and sale on Labor Day Weekend at the Pt. Reyes Visitor Center Red Barn.  It's a fundraiser for their non-profit organization that is a tenacious grassroots group founded in 1971 to protect West Marin's natural environment and rural character.

This year's show was a huge success with 38 artists exhibiting more than 160 pieces.  More than 50% of the artwork sold and their sales topped the previous high of two years ago.  Quite a testament in this struggling economy.  

Christin and I helped greet the visitors during the 3 day event and we were pleased to have had 9 of our paintings find new homes.  Sherrie Stanton and Jane Kriss, along with the other volunteers did a magnificent job organizing everything and we were so pleased to be part of the show once again.
