Plumas Arts cordially invites all to the 50th anniversary of the best summer art show that our area has to offer on Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 3 and 4, on the cool and green Collins Pine Lawn in Chester. Show hours are Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; and Sunday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Plumas Arts is pleased to showcase more vendors than in recent years for the highest quality collections of artwork that they have seen in many years. This has become one of the most respected exhibitions of fine art and artisan crafts in the region.

Painters, printmakers and photographers are a featured part of the show. You will also find unique and wonderful pottery, woodwork, fabric arts, jewelry, metal work, furniture and even artisan foods. Items fall in a full range of prices and the purchase of a unique artisan made item supports the work of the people who create something original.

In addition to a wonderful world of art to explore, enjoy a delicious lunch on the lawn and listen to music presented by father-daughter duo Hank and Shadri Alrich.


Plumas Arts is also pleased to welcome neighboring Lassen County Arts Council (LCAC) to the Almanor Art Show. The LCAC will have a booth displaying artwork — sketches to sculptures — from their artist members and will be providing information about exciting new developments for their local arts agency.

Spend several hours leisurely enjoying an idyllic moment at a lovely event. Check out the art. Have lunch. Listen to music. Then go back for that art purchase that will still be tugging at your memory. Then head on back for more music. There is no more pleasant a place to be on a summer afternoon.

Admission to the event is free allowing you to save your money to support the artisans.
