About Art at the Cheese Factory (ACF)

ACF is a tax-exempt public benefit organization currently headed by Claudia Chapline (Stinson Beach) to present contemporary art in collaboration with Marin and Sonoma venues. ACF’s mission is to enhance community life by presenting indoor and outdoor art exhibitions and events that combine work by artists of national and international reputation with work by regional artists. email

Board of Directors: Christian Anthony, Claudia Chapline, Etta Deikman, Joe Fox, Kristin Otis

Our first three exhibitions were at the Marin French Cheese Company, a 700 acre ranch and historic factory (operating continuously for 145 years), with over 150,000 visitors each year. The owners, Jim Boyce and Kristin Otis transformed a historic barn in 2005 into an exhibition space to show works by the late painter Jesse Reichek. During their current ownership transition, ACF is moving out into the community to a variety of venues for each new presentation. In June, 2010, ACF presented its first off-site exhibition at the new Marin Arts Gallery. 2011 plans include an environmentally themed exhibition at Gallery Route One in Point Reyes Station.

  1. I must to say the cheese drives me crazy, I approach every time for eat cheese and I add in my recipes all the time. I read some days ago the cheese have many properties and vitamin. The most important thing is the potassium and calcium the cheese contain. I am sure that When i buying my house through costa rica homes for sale i will prepare a dinner for all my friends and I will add many cheese. That will be wonderful.
