West Marin On View
On view January 16 through May 2, 2019
West Marin On View features works by artists affiliated with the Point Reyes Open Studios Group and the Coastal Marin Artists from Bolinas and Stinson Beach.
The Point Reyes Open Studios Group (PROS) was established in 1997 to promote the work of artists living around Tomales Bay. Realizing the wealth of talent in the communities of Point Reyes Station, Inverness Park, Inverness, Olema and Marshall, the group’s founders sought to bring local artists together to form a group with an identity distinct from artists living in the rest of Marin County. Today PROS has over thirty members including ceramicists, photographers, sculptors in stone and wood, painters, printmakers, fiber artists and artists who work with recycled materials. The group is made up of emerging artists and those who have enjoyed long and successful careers, those who exhibit locally and those whose work is in collections and galleries around the world. While much of the work produced celebrates the natural beauty of the Point Reyes wilderness area, a diversity of styles is represented by the group including representational, figurative, abstract, impressionistic, realistic, functional and fun.
The Coastal Marin Artists group showcases artists from Bolinas and Stinson Beach, both communities rooted in the rich tradition of the arts. The organization supports an eclectic group of artists both established and emerging including some of the finest local artists of the Bay Area.
This exhibit is on display in the 1st and 3rd floor galleries of the Marin County Civic Center. The Gallery is open Monday through Friday, 8am - 6pm.
