Undeveloped coastal properties rank among the most valuable commodities in California, and protecting them is a battle often lost. Carpinterians, however, have triumphed not once but twice, as this week the Land Trust for Santa Barbara County announced the completion of its $7.9 million campaign to preserve the 21-acre Bluffs III property on the east end of Carpinteria Avenue.
Circling back to their original benefit show decades ago, The Oak Group once again contributes to saving more of the Carpinteria bluffs with a benefit art exhibit, “Coastline,” which is online through April 30, 2017.
Guest artists Kevin Gleason, Kaaren Robertson, Nicole Strasburg, and John Wullbrandt contribute their work along with members of The Oak Group.
Forty-five percent of proceeds will directly benefit the acquisition of Carpinteria Bluffs III, 21 more acres of the Carpinteria Bluffs west of Rincon. For online sales call the Land Trust office at (805) 966-4520
A complete gallery of the available art (over 100 pieces) is available on our Facebook page.
