An outstanding organization that seeks to preserve the agricultural lands surrounding San Francisco, the Marin Agricultural Land Trust — or MALT — hosts a landscape art show and sale each year to raise funds for its mission. Its most recent event broke records.
Featuring nearly 40 acclaimed Marin and Santa Barbara Oak Group artists, the Marin Agricultural Land Trust (MALT) recently hosted its annual “Ranches & Rolling Hills Landscape Art Show and Sale,” which realized over $142,000 in sales — smashing previous records. Even more impressive was the fact that this total was achieved through the sale of only 110 paintings — a testament to both the skills of the artists and the support for MALT’s mission. Among the participating artists were Meredith Brooks Abbott, Susan Hall, David Perkins, Richard Schloss, Leslie Allen, Ward Walkup, Jon Francis, Jeanette Le Grue, and Dana Hooper.
Plans are already in progress for the organization’s 20th-anniversary celebration, scheduled for May 2017. To learn more, visit The Marin Agricultural Land Trust.
