CDLT says thanks

Leigh Girvin, CDLT executive director

The Continental Divide Land Trust was honored to have 16 plein air artists from around the country come paint on preserved lands in the Frisco area on July 18 and 19 for the Painting the Landscape, Preserving the Land event. This 2nd annual arts event helped us experience the landscape as it is today. And it encourages us to preserve the land for tomorrow. The event was a great success for the Continental Divide Land Trust thanks to the help of Buffalo Mountain Gallery, Summit Daily News, Summit County Open Space & Trails and Antler’s Discount Liquors & Wine Cellar. We value our passionate volunteers that helped in town as land docents and the volunteers that helped in the gallery! We were extremely grateful to have Joanne Hanson helping to organize all of the artists and help with their lodging and painting needs. A huge special thanks goes out to Sue and Keith Feldman, owners of the Buffalo Mountain Gallery, for their hard work in making the event happen. The gallery space was a wonderful venue for our artist’s paintings. We appreciate everyone’s support! The Painting the Landscape; Preserving the Land allowed Continental Divide Land Trust to spread the word about the importance of conservation easements to permanently preserve land. Private land and Pubic land conservation benefits everyone by protecting scenic views, wildlife habitat, native landscapes, agriculture, and more. The artwork will remain on display and for sale through Aug 1. Proceeds from the sale of the art benefit the land conservation programs of CDLT.
