Plumas Arts is working with the Plumas National Forest on its second annual juried art show and competition.

The Artist in Residence program provides a unique opportunity for one artist to spend one week at the Black Mountain Lookout to draw upon the breathtaking landscapes of the Plumas National Forest for inspiration.

Plumas Arts will coordinate the application process and hosting a juried art show of works entered at the March show in the Plumas Arts Gallery.
