Arroyo Hondo Sunset, 6 x 9 gouache, by Chris Chapman

The Oak Group is one of the first groups of artists exhibiting to preserve open spaces. They work to protect land for wildlife, recreation, ranching, and farming. The artists make visual records, drawing public attention to land we stand to lose and they generate funds to protect them.

The group began meeting over thirty years ago, a few friends who gained inspiration and camaraderie from working outdoors together. They quickly grew in number and in their dedication to save Santa Barbara County’s remaining open spaces, they donate money from exhibitions to non-profit environmental groups.

Stories of Arroyo Hondo

StoriesOfArroyoHondo

This colorful history of Arroyo Hondo Ranch on California’s famed Gaviota Coast weaves together the stories of its people, from a 5,000-year-old Chumash village to Spanish, Mexican, and American ownership.  Now protected as Arroyo Hondo Preserve, the love of land is personally shared and beautifully illuminated with historic and modern-day photos and paintings by Chris Chapman and John Iwerks.
