Join Plumas Arts this weekend, June 25-26, for the 51st annual Almanor Art Show on the Collins Pine lawn in Chester on Highway 36. Show hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday and 10 am to 4 p.m. on Sunday.
Ongoing since 1969, this is Plumas County’s oldest and one of the best exhibitions of fine arts and crafts in several counties. Artists from near and far grace the show with their original paintings, drawings, photographs, jewelry, furniture, sculptures, wood, metal, fabric and whimsical art in a full range of prices. Many Plumas County artists will also be featured.
This show is unique and a wonderful way to spend the day and find many beautiful items to take home. There will be six fine arts artists and six artists specializing in wood working. Be prepared to see high-quality fine art, great body products, fine leather work and two furniture makers. Spend several hours leisurely enjoying an idyllic moment at a charming event. Check out the art, have lunch, listen to music, and then go back for that art purchase that will still be tugging at your memory and head on back for more music. There is no more pleasant a place to be on a summer afternoon.
Fiesta Fresh food truck will be offering delicious meals, many drinks, shave ice, and other treats. Bakers Choice kettle corn will be popping fresh at the show.
Featured musicians Hank & Shaidri Alrich are a dynamic daughter and dad Americana duo who will play during the entire art show. Their music has proven appealing across genres and generations. Hank & Shaidri draw from a vast reservoir of American traditional music, along with the work of some of our best down-to-earth songwriters, and a plentiful selection of original material. The sum of those parts yields a marvelous range of songs in varying styles, all of which they make their own. Their delivery is natural and unpretentious.
For this 2022 Almanor Art Show Hank & Shaidri will be supported by Bill Liles from Boise, Idaho, on upright bass. Bill is a fun guy and a fabulous player across many genres. He’s a passionate pro who always brings his best, and his best is truly excellent. Anticipate that Bill and Hank will begin the music with an instrumental set of standards, familiar and timeless favorites from the great American songbook.
Plumas Arts hopes to see you in Chester for fine art, crafts, music, and food!
