Art on the farm Weekly...San Geronimo Valley Community Center Exhibit & Reception

It was a lovely afternoon in San Geronimo Valley, where Helge Hellberg, of Marin Organic, addressed a crowd of about fifty guests and artists who came to view the new art produced on Marin Organic farms. The adjoining two galleries at the Community Center are bright, airy and it is easy to view the art. It is much more intimate than our last group show at the Marin Center. If you haven't visited the SGCC lately, you will enjoy the stained glass windows depicting Valley landscapes, and the W.P.A. mural outside the Valley Room that has been restored, with prints available.

Art on the Farm... History + Press

 Our History
Founder, Alan Mart
Art on the Farm was the vision of Bolinas farmer and artist, Alan Mart.  In 1998, Alan decided that he would never have the time to make art outside of being a farmer, if he didn't create the time.  Art on the Farm was Alan's way of making the time for his art.  Since 1998, artists from the Bay Area and beyond have stepped up to assist in Alan's mission, to create art inspired by farms, and give back to the farmers.  Read below for mentions of "Art on the Farm" in the news.  Click here to view a slideshow of highlights >

I want to take this opportunity to thank the West Marin Citizen for printing our images over the past year.

Above is his most recent contribution to our group's publicity, and an ad for our group show, reception, and chat with Helge Hellberg of Marin Organic, and Diane Matthews of Mt. Barnabe Farm, this Saturday, July 11, 4-7pm at the San Geronimo Valley Community Center Gallery. Thank you, Jim!
