Mendocino Eco Artists (MEA) is an organization of artists who have the common goal of applying their talents to help conserve and restore the natural environment of our area.
MEA will contribute 30% of sales from this exhibit to the Mendocino Area Parks Association.
The mission of MEA is to form partnerships with local environmental groups, and through joint projects, to use the members' art to help raise public awareness of the threats to the ecological balance and to raise funds to support their projects.
Mendocino Eco Artists is joining a new movement in the arts toward pro-active environmental goals, to help preserve and restore what is left of the natural world of California.
The members of MEA are professional painters and sculptors who live, work, and draw their creative inspiration from this beautiful place. Many of the MEA are known nationally & internationally and have received a great amount of recognition in their artistic fields. Many have also been generous with their contribution of talent and time on projects for the community.
Each individual has a keen desire to contribute to the preservation of the Mendocino coastal environment - the mountains, rivers and shores and all the living things which call it home.
To paraphrase Dennis Power, former Director of the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History and of the Oakland Museum,
"Artists have become conservationists by depicting
in a heartfelt way what we may be in danger of losing."
The Gualala Arts Center, located at 46501 Old State Highway in Gualala, CA,
is open weekdays 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., and weekends from noon to 4:00 p.m.
