The exhibition Connections, that I organized for Art Contemporary Marin opens next week with a preview program on KWMR Community Radio, March 12, 5-5:30 P.M. and public receptions at the Red Barn Gallery on Bear Valley Road in the Point Reyes National Seashore on March 13 and March 15 from 12 to 4 P.M. After March 15 the exhibition will be open by appointment only through June 30. 415./464-5125 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The purpose of the exhibition is to encourage viewers to care for the habitats of all the living creatures who share the planet with us. Beautiful art in paintings, photographs, mixed media and artist’s books honor the birds, animals, plants, insects and sea life of coastal Marin.

The exhibition is in conjunction with the Geography of Hope Literary Conference, Women and the Land, sponsored by Point Reyes Books, March 13-15.
