Bear Creek Frames on Main Street in Quincy is kicking off spring with a host of art activities for the community to enjoy.

 Trisha Aitken decorated the front window at Bear Creek Frames this month with her fiber art dolls using an artist’s theme.

Liz Swindell, owner of Wild Pines in Graeagle, is the featured artist for May and is showing her paintings and sculptures during the first Friday Art Walk on Friday, May 5. Hors d’oeuvres will be served with a Mexican flair from Bell Lane Baked Goods.

The Lost Sierra Plein Air Art Festival is happening again this year from May 20-27, with artists from as far away as Utah and Idaho are participating. There are still spots available for workshops by Lucinda Wood and Sally Yost.

There’s a prime rib dinner and a presentation by Charles Muench on the challenges of painting in the backcountry of the Sierras scheduled on Thursday, May 25. Tickets will be available until April 30.
On Friday, May 26 there will be an artist reception and awards at the Veterans Hall.
The Art Festival will culminate on Saturday, May 27 with a quick draw competition and an artist street fair on Bradley Street between Main and Lawrence. Organizers are still looking for artists to fill the street and make this a fun day. Contact Mark at Bear Creek Frames.
