New Season Starts May 5, 2013!

Fellow Farm Artists and Friends,

Founder, Alan Mart, has set up the kick off of the 2013 Art on the Farm season--
Our first trip will be to Toluma Farms, hosted by Tamara Hicks.  Please sign the release to participate and sign up for our newsletter, below.  Directions to Toluma will be emailed out to our list before May 5th.  We may soon go to a "Meet up" type of scheduling this year, as some other plein air groups have become successful with this online program.  If there is a volunteer interested in running the "Meet up" page for our group this year, please contact us.  The fee seems to be $12. a month to use Meet up.  Since our group has been traditionally free, we hesitate to move to this with out asking all if they would be willing to donate $1. a year or so to help defray costs.  Perhaps a donation button on the site might work to cover the basic expenses.

Congratulations to the entire group for a successful fundraising exhibit at Art Works Downtown in 2012.  Art Works Downtown sold 13 pieces of art from the exhibit, with a percentage going back to the  Farm Field Studies Program for Marin Organic.  The building-wide exhibit was very well received by the public and enjoyed during the holidays.  Thank you to all the artists for contributing work and attending the events.
