“Love of the land lies deep within the human spirit.”
—Diane Cooley

Fifty-five artists were invited to brave the weather, climb hills, lug easels, paint, and canvases to sites in southern Santa Cruz County. Painting outside on the land, en Plein Air, has long been a traditional pursuit in the Santa Cruz area because of the natural light and beauty of our collective landscape.

Generous land owners, directors and ranch managers have granted access during the month of July for the painting.

We hope you will enjoy the different artist interpretations of the  same properties and appreciate the importance of protecting “Our Bounty” and being stewards of the land.

—Curator: Susanna Waddell, 2019
