Solano Land Trust through the eyes of artists
Twenty-five professional artists and photographers have organized themselves and made a commitment to produce a body of work inspired by Solano Land Trust’s open spaces and protected agricultural lands. The artists’ purpose is to bring public awareness and support to Solano Land Trust’s remarkable mission through exhibits and sales culminating in the 2012 Solano Land Trust Harvest Feast Benefit & Auction.
Each artist brings many years of professional study and practice to their efforts, working to express aspects of the visual splendor to be found in the sweeping vistas of King Ranch/Cordelia Hills Open Space, the flora and fauna of Jepson Prairie, and Lynch Canyon, the marshes of Rush Ranch, and the protected agricultural lands of Solano County’s corner of the Central Valley. Explore oak grasslands, vernal pools, tidal marshes, and our agricultural heritage through the eyes of painters and photographers working in a variety of disciplines and mediums to portray a rich visual portrait of the beauty and diversity of the natural landscape waiting to be discovered at the North Bay’s door step and to be protected for future generations.
