Oak Group Exhibit
The much heralded Oak Group exhibit at the Faulkner Gallery opened with a gala reception on October 5th. Almost 200 guests, both lovers of art, and lovers of More Mesa, came together to enjoy the ninety-two paintings on exhibit. Many of these are scenes of our beautiful More Mesa and surrounding areas. Works by nearly all of the 23 artists in the Oak Group, as well as four guest artists are being exhibited. We extend our heartfelt thanks to all the painters who participated, as well as to those volunteers who helped to make the opening reception a stellar event. We also would like to gratefully acknowledge wine donations from Arnoldi’s Café, the Buttonwood Winery, the Gainey Winery and Kim and Tammy Hughes. As well, our thanks go out to the Chocolate Gallery, Costco, Lazy Acres, Ralphs, Trader Joe’s, Vons and Whole Foods for food donations.
We encourage all who were unable to attend the opening, to visit the Faulkner any time during the month of October. We hope you will also consider acquiring one of these lovely works to remind you of the wonderful open spaces in our beautiful Santa Barbara area. Further, and most especially, we trust these images will remind you of More Mesa, and the need to preserve all of it forever! And, on a more pragmatic note, remember that half of the purchase price of any art will be donated to the More Mesa Preservation Coalition.
