MarinScapes Reimagined 2019
Buckelew Programs is proud to present MarinScapes Reimagined 2019, the 31st annual exhibition and sale of Marin County landscape artwork from June 20 – 23 at the historic Escalle Winery in downtown Larkspur. MarinScapes Reimagined raises funds for Buckelew Programs who provide treatment and support services for people with mental health and addiction challenges.
The beloved fundraiser returns this year with a new perspective: “The Invented Landscape,” a unique installation from guest curators Donna Seager and Suzanne Gray of Mill Valley’s renowned Seager/Gray Gallery. Abstract yet familiar, the new pieces are created by contemporary artists who have reimagined the local scenery with work from their studio practice. Variations in surface, palette and locale offer patrons a different interpretation of iconic Marin; familiar vistas seen through an open and expansive lens. These large-scale pieces remind us that there are a variety of ways to interpret a view, an action or an event.
The new installation will be complimented with art from beloved, local favorites like Kathleen Lipinski, Tom Killion and Susan Schneider Williams, showcasing the works of painters who capture Marin County’s spectacular views and magnificent scenic vistas through classic plein air landscapes.
A full list of participating artists can be found here.
MarinScapes Reimagined is a uniquely Marin event – one that celebrates regional variation’s, Bolinas to Mount Tamalpias and includes the rustic ambiance of the historic Escalle Winery, Marin’s first winery which is transformed into an indoor-outdoor gallery. The venue, not commercially available to the public, dates back to the late 1800s and is surrounded by wooded hills at the edge of a horse pasture near charming downtown Larkspur.
