Los Olivos, CA -

The Wildling Art Museum in Los Olivos has organized a fun and informative excursion to nearby Santa Cruz Island, Sunday, October 9, from 11:00 a.m.-6:00 p.m.[ Image © Jeff Foote, courtesy of National Park Service --> ]

Inspired by the museum’s fall exhibition “Island Encounters: The Art and Conservation of the Channel Islands”, the trip will begin in Ventura, where Island Packers will transport the group to Santa Cruz, the largest in the chain of eight Channel Islands.

The boat will take approximately an hour to cross the channel, with possible detours if whales or dolphins are spotted. Joining the Wildling group will be artist David Gallup who has spent many years visiting the Channel Islands painting amazing vistas above AND below the water. His recent show at Pepperdine University broke attendance records.

Gallup will give a short talk at Scorpion Bay to the Wildling group before setting up to paint. After his presentation, the group will go off to explore the National Park Service Visitor Center, learn more about the islands from a trained naturalist, and have a delicious boxed lunch. Before returning late afternoon, everyone will have an opportunity to see what David painted.

Reservations for this unique trip are due by Friday, September 23, 2011. Early-bird tickets, $105 ($95 - museum members), are available through September 18, after that ticket prices will increase $10. Tickets may purchased through the museum’s website or by calling 805-686-8315. Spots are limited, so the Wildling recommends you book early!

The Wildling Art Museum connects people to the wonders of America’s wilderness through art. It is located at 2928 San Marcos Avenue in Los Olivos (next to Corner House Coffee). Public hours are Wednesday through Sunday, 11:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m. For more information log on to the Museum’s website
