A portion of the proceeds will be donated to local and national groups that support the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area. The show features water color, pastel and oil representative landscape paintings by six local artists: Bonnie Freund, Carole Garland, Russell Hunziker, Virginia Kamhi, Timothy Kitz and Linda Melber. Within an hour’s drive from the city are remote parks with mountain lions, bobcats and deer roaming in the distance. Ocean vistas from headlands high above the Pacific Coast Highway, uphill trails through tangled undergrowth, or surf
crashing on a shoreline while dolphins look on. Running from Franklin and Runyon Parks in the east to Point Mugu State Park in the west the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area includes areas in the northwest Los Angeles County and southeastern Ventura County and covers over 156,000 acres of public parklands. There are over 500 miles of trails, 450 animal species, 40 miles of coastline and contains Sandstone Peak, the highest location in the Santa Monica Mountains. It is a lush oasis of mountains, canyons, forests, meadows and creeks, ponds and beaches, even waterfalls, amidst the urban sprawl of Los Angeles. Allied Artists of the Santa Monica Mountains and Seashore is a 20-year-old organization of fine artists that paint representational art of the Santa Monica Mountains and beaches to “Paint and Preserve the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area”
