Oak Group Benefit for Nature Conservancy

Oak Group Show Benefits The Nature Conservancy
November 2 through midday, November 30, 2018

The Oak Group continues its long-standing support of The Nature Conservancy with “Learning to Love,” an exhibition in Santa Barbara’s Faulkner Gallery in the Central Library. The show’s title comes from a quotation by the painter Claude Monet, who wrote, “Eventually, my eyes were opened, and I really understood nature. I learned to love at the same time.”

Oak artists look forward to greeting the public at a reception on Friday evening, November 2, from 5:30 to 7:30.

Forty-five percent of proceeds will directly benefit The Nature Conservancy and its projects, including nearby Carrizo Plain and Santa Cruz Island. The Nature Conservancy is a global conservation organization that creates innovative solutions to our world’s toughest challenges so that nature and people can thrive together. TNC uses a collaborative approach that engages local communities and other partners.

Paintings and photographs in this show will include several by artists who’ve visited the new 24,000-acre Jack and Laura Dangermond Preserve on our own Gaviota coast, as well as images of historic Nature Conservancy properties such as Santa Cruz Island, Elkhorn Slough, Big Sur Coastline, and Carrizo Plain.

Shadows and Light

October 13 through November 25, 2018

Accompanying Marcia Burtt Gallery’s “Anne Ward” exhibition, are paintings and drawings that revel in nature’s contrasts. Glaring light heightens colors; long shadows repeat forms and allude to what is beyond the canvas.

Lovely beaches, beautiful paintings and big brushes in Florida!

DISAPPEARED!!

While on the walls at L’Auberge in Sedona, these paintings have vanished:
1031103

1050601

1050606

1051007

1060408

1071102

I lent these paintings to L’Auberge in 2007 where I believed they would be seen and be sold to visitors to this lovely hotel.

A year ago I realized it was time to get the paintings back, but when I contacted the manager I was told the paintings were not there and he could not help me.
He no longer returns my phone calls or emails.

Please help! If you see any of these paintings I’d appreciate knowing where they are now.
