The Art of Conservation

"The Art of Conservation" is an exhibition of original paintings of trust paintings and of the White Mountains by artist from the Northeast to benefit the Ammonoosuc Conservation Trust. ACT protects open spaces with conservation, historic or scenic value including agricultural and forested lands, wetland and wildlife habitat in the White Mountains region of northern New Hampshire. We wanted to show some of the beautiful paintings from our own scenic locations. We were so honored to have these talented painters select our property to paint the White Mountains. It certainly was exciting to see their amazing works of art.

This first image is of our farm, "Iris Farm" in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. It is looking out from the front of our house at the top of the hill. Mount Washington and the Presidential Range of mountains can be seen in the painting.
This second barn painting is of my Aunts lovely barn just up the road from our houses. the Presidential Range is also visible in this painting.

Ladies,
This is just lovely. It is always reassuring to hear about groups and organizations who are quietly working so very hard to conserve historic & scenic beauty for many generations to come.
Our 1910 family log cabin and the Pecos Canyon in the mountains of New Mexico above Santa Fe was just added to the local list of protected areas. A huge sigh of relief for us all.
The artwork is really beautiful. Now I see why it is such an important part of your family life. Thanks for sharing.
