About: Based in Orange County, this artists' cooperative has a mission of which the Hudson River School painters would have been proud. They work to promote local artists and help preserve open space by offering outdoor painting workshops at small farms and other scenic locales. Their Montgomery gallery does double duty as an art school, and members of the group have even published Orange County Bounty, a cookbook of recipes using foods grown by local farmers (available through their Web site).
