Art Show to Benefit Gaviota Coast

SCAPE Presents Secrets at Casa de la Guerra


Art and environmental preservation will go hand in hand when Save Naples, Gaviota Coastal Conservancy, and the Southern California Artists Painting for the Environment (SCAPE) come together for September’s First Thursday at Casa de la Guerra.

The show is being called Secrets of the Gaviota Coast, and it features works from nature photographer Shaw Leonard, as well as multiple artists from the SCAPE collective. Of equal importance, though, is the financial side of things; over 40-percent of each sale during the event will be donated to Save Naples and the Gaviota Coastal Conservancy. The whole production falls directly in line with SCAPE’s big picture. Over the past 11 years, the organization has helped raise over $125,000 for various environmental non-profits and issues.

Secrets of the Gaviota Coast kicks off this Thursday, September 5, at Casa de la Guerra (15 E. De la Guerra St.). A free reception will be held from 5 to 8 p.m., which will include refreshments, along with a raffle to benefit the Naples Coalition in its efforts to preserve Santa Barbara’s nature. For more information about the event, call (805) 683-6631 or visit savenaples.org.
