Artist, poet, and naturalist Obi Kaufmann brings his best-selling California Field Atlas to the Marin Art & Garden Center.

Exclusive prints of Obi’s watercolor trail-paintings will be available for sale.

$15 general admission; tickets available here. 100% of book sale proceeds from this event will go to Butte County’s North Valley Animal Disaster Group, which offers shelter and medical services for animals in the evacuation area of the devastating Camp Fire.

Obi KaufmannGrowing up in the East Bay as the son of an astrophysicist and a psychologist, Obi Kaufmann spent most of high school practicing calculus and breaking away on weekends to scramble around Mount Diablo and map its creeks, oak forests, and sage mazes. Into adulthood, he would regularly journey into the mountains, spending more summer nights without a roof than with one. For Kaufmann, the epic narrative of the California backcountry holds enough art, science, mythology, and language for a hundred field atlases to come. When he is not backpacking, you can find the painter-poet at his desk in Oakland, posting @coyotethunder #trailpaintings on social media. His website is
