SCAPE is a 501 (C) (6) non-profit, run for and by its members.  There are many ways to enjoy the camaraderie by volunteering for a Board Position and/or or as a Committee Member. The Board has been fortunate to have the continuing support of so many hard-working members, since SCAPE's inception in 2002.  To keep the organization alive, we need others to step up to the plate and volunteer for a board position for a term of one or more years.  Training will be provided.  The Board meets once a month at the studio of Marcia Burtt, one of SCAPE's founders.  Committees meet on an as-needed basis.  Open positions needing to be filled are highlighted in blue below.

A Brief History of SCAPE's Beginnings

--Marcia Burtt, SCAPE Founder 

          SCAPE had its beginnings in 2002 when Susan Belloni, Camille Dellar, and I met together, impelled by Larry Iwerks who had often pointed out that raising money for environmental causes should be open to the painting community at large rather than being restricted to a small group of invitees.

          Patricia Doyle thought up the wonderful name Southern California Artists Painting for the Environment—SCAPE. Don Crocker obtained our 501 C-6 designation and has been a faithful board member ever since. 

          We decided to have a "working board" so that each board member was head of a committee charged with getting work done—exhibitions, workshops, and so on.

          Starting with ideas from the first officers, the mission and activities of SCAPE have gradually taken shape: we are now a substantial group of outdoor painters participating in regular and very successful juried exhibitions to raise money for the environment while providing opportunities to make friends with other artists through painting together, installing shows together, and learning together.
