RANCHES & ROLLING HILLS: Art of West Marin - A Land in Trust
By Elisabeth Ptak. With essays by Jean Stern and Michael Whitt. Hard Cover, First Edition.
135 full-color paintings of western Marin County, one of California's most sublime landscapes, a rural area just north of the Golden Gate. The work of forty well-known plein air and studio artists, the book represents the best of ten years of the annual art show, Ranches & Rolling Hills, by MALT (Marin Agricutural Land Trust), a model for agricultural land preservation efforts across the nation.
The artwork in this book exemplifies a special partnership between family farmers, artists, and conservationists. the farmers whose ranches, animals, and crops are depected here are lifelong stewards of the land, safeguarding a personal and community heritage. The artists are dedicated to helping preserve the land that inspires their art. Fifty percent of their income from the show (and the proceeds from this book) assists Marin Agricultural Land Trust in acquiring agricultural easements in voluntary transactions with ranchers to protect farmland in Marin County.
