Thank you so much to Mary Anne Carson of Santa Cruz County Bank and her team, and to Michele Hausman of SCOP, for organizing this great exhibit!
20% of sales made during this exhibition will benefit the parks.
Painting our Parks, features over 100 plein air paintings of County, State and National Parks in California, from the quiet beauty of the pond at Quail Hollow, the grandeur of the rocky coast at Garrapata, to the majestic cliffs of Yosemite. The paintings were produced by fourteen Santa Cruz artists, all members of the Santa Cruz Oil Painters. Their images have captured the magic and the treasure of California’s natural beauty, preserved for all by our State Parks.
