Mendocino Eco Artists (MEA) are a group of artists who work together to promote conservation and restoration of the local environment. We are professional painters, sculptors, and photographers who live, work, and draw their creative inspiration from this beautiful place. We work as partners with Local Environmental Groups and use our art to help increase public awareness of our region's challenges and to raise funds through sale of our artwork to help our conservation partners achieve their goals. We have our annual Summer Exhibit at the Standford Inn by the Sea Partners with: Mendocino Land Trust (MLT), Mendocino Area Parks (MAPA), Noyo Center for Marine Science (NCMS) Sponsor for Salmon Restoration Association (SRA): A non-profit organization, located in Fort Bragg, California, dedicated to the restoration of the salmon resource in Mendocino County, California.
Donate artwork annually for the "Pure Mendocino" fund raiser, and Mother's Day projects.
