It is my sad duty to inform you that we need to cancel the rest of the farm visits for this year.
Unfortunately, even though we sign releases indemnifying the farmers and ranchers, there is still the possibility of a lawsuit. It has come to my attention that neither Marin Organic's insurance nor that of the farmers and ranchers will adequately protect the parties involved in case this happens. As visiting artists to the farms we appreciate their importance, and don’t want to jeopardize their ability to thrive. Hopefully we will find a way to solve this problem in the near future.
It is my intention to find a space for a November exhibit as we have done these many years.
Art On The Farm is a volunteer run, community-based partnership between artists and Marin Organic farmers.
How it works:
The Art on the Farm group meets at a local organic farm and creates artwork based on their visit. Artists spend time at the farm painting "en plein air" or taking photographs.
Art on the Farm artists participate in the annual fundraising art exhibit and donate a portion of their sales to benefit the local organic farm community.
