Oak Group Benefit for Nature Conservancy
Oak Group Show Benefits The Nature Conservancy
November 2 through midday, November 30, 2018
The Oak Group continues its long-standing support of The Nature Conservancy with “Learning to Love,” an exhibition in Santa Barbara’s Faulkner Gallery in the Central Library. The show’s title comes from a quotation by the painter Claude Monet, who wrote, "Eventually, my eyes were opened, and I really understood nature. I learned to love at the same time.”
Oak artists look forward to greeting the public at a reception on Friday evening, November 2, from 5:30 to 7:30.
Forty-five percent of proceeds will directly benefit The Nature Conservancy and its projects, including nearby Carrizo Plain and Santa Cruz Island. The Nature Conservancy is a global conservation organization that creates innovative solutions to our world's toughest challenges so that nature and people can thrive together. TNC uses a collaborative approach that engages local communities and other partners.
