The 29th Annual MarinScapes, an art exhibit and benefit for Buckelew Programs showcased the works of over 30 artists and photographers at the historic Escalle Winery in the charming town of Larkspur throughout the weekend of June 23rd. Each artist presented works that captured the stunning beauty and natural scenery of Marin County.

The sold-out Opening Night Gala featured artist and guest speaker Susan Schneider Williams, Marin County fine artist and wife of the late Robin Williams. The evening included fine dining by local favorite Insalata’s, a spirited live auction and inspirational words from Schneider Williams, who spoke about her connection with Helen Vine Recovery Center and shared touching stories of her life with her late husband Robin and their personal journey of recovery.

The annual three-day event is open to the public and serves as a fundraiser for Marin, Napa and Sonoma County-based Buckelew Programs. Buckelew Programs’ mission is to promote recovery, resilience, and hope by providing behavioral health and support services for those in need.
