"Point Reyes Wild" with the BayWood Artists
Point Reyes Wild is an exhibition and sale of landscape paintings of Point Reyes National Seashore by the BayWood Artists.
The show celebrates the 50th anniversary of the Wilderness Act passed by Congress in 1964 and is a fundraiser for Point Reyes National Seashore Association's mission. It is the result of a year-long effort by these accomplished plein air artists to depict some of the park’s best-known landmarks and species, as well as special remote locations. The BayWood Artists earmark 50% of the proceeds of sales from Point Reyes Wild show to our nonprofit organization and in support of our mission.
"PRNSA raises awareness and funds for education, preservation, and resource protection of the national seashore,” says art show organizer Annalisa Price. "Money raised at the art exhibition will go a long way toward helping us do even more for our beautiful park and the people who visit here.”
The exhibit and sale will take place at the Red Barn Classroom and Art Gallery at Point Reyes National Seashore (76 Bear Valley Road) on weekends throughout September (except September 14) from noon to 5 pm. Admission is free. Visitors can also view and purchase a selection of the artists’ works in the Bear Valley Visitor Center from August 30 through September 30, Monday through Friday, 10 am to 4:30 pm and on weekends and holidays from 9 am to 4:30 pm or by appointment. For more information, contact BayWood Artists or Annalisa Price.
The mission of the BayWood Artists is to protect and preserve the landscape by: raising awareness of and making donations to environmental causes through fine art exhibitions and sales; and by promoting the tradition of plein air painting in California. They contribute one half of the proceeds from sales to environmental groups involved with preserving these lands, shores, and waterways. The 2014 event marks the third year in a row that the BayWood group has chosen Point Reyes National Seashore as its beneficiary.
