Art for the Endangered Landscape

This September 29th paint-out will focus on conservation and land use in our part of Colorado; always a hot topic.
The San Luis Valley Eco System Council and Community Partnerships of Adams State University are hosting this event on Saturday, September 29th, starting at 9. a.m., to raise public awareness to a proposed wildcat oil well exploration site that is within a residential site surrounded by public land. The purpose of the event is to celebrate the existing conditions of the area; Sue McCullough, David Montgomery and myself, will all be taking part to document the area en plein air.
Artists of every type and interested members of San Luis Valley communities are also being invited to take part, adjacent to a proposed drilling site on San Francisco Creek south of Del Norte Colorado.

If this kind of event rings your bell, either as a supporter of wild lands or as an artist/supporter, come out to enjoy a fabulous fall day in Colorado.  Go to their website at slvec.org for directions and more information.
The San Luis Valley Ecosystem Council is a non-profit advocacy organization for Colorado public lands.
