Sierra Foothill Conservancy
At our recent P.E.O. meeting, we had the pleasure of having Bridget Fithian (above with Pat Pinckney) and Christopher Watts, from the Sierra Foothill Conservancy speak to us about saving the Sierra Foothills in their natural state.
They have many fund raisers during the year, but the project that our local artists are excited about is the Sierra Foothill Conservancy Plein Air Project. The Conservancy invited California artists to paint at 3 locations and capture the essence of our beautiful landscapes.
The exhibition will be shown at 3 locations, the Embarcadero,, August 7th, Madden Library, Mid August, and The Great Central Valley Exhibition in Fresno,on Sunday August 29.
Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for additional information. This is such a worth while cause. Saving our land to have open areas where we can see nature at it's finest is important to each of us. We are blessed to be living here in the mountains. Many people that will be seeing these paintings live a life surrounded by concrete. Through this art they will have the opportunity to experience the spirit of nature.
I am a mixed media fiber/quilt artist who loves to work with gourds,and jewelry. I am easily distracted with the next project, and have many going at one time. I have been teaching Fabric Dyeing and Beginning gourd art for many years. I am blessed with my own home studio. We live in the rolling hills near Yosemite National Park, in central Calif. U.S.A. This is a place of Inspiration, Blue Skies and Great Friends. I volunteer with several organizations,and have memberships in P.E.O., Coarsegold Historical So., Sierra Art Trails, Madera Circle Gallery, Yosemite Western Artist, Timberline Gallery and Sierra Mountain Quilters. I teach at my home studio and at local quilt gatherings.
