The Plumas Arts Gallery, located at 525 Main St. in Quincy, features the work of Plumas Arts’ member artists this holiday season.
The gallery boasts a large selection of one-of-a-kind items for holiday gift giving including: hand-painted and stained glass ornaments, pottery, fabric arts, soaps and jewelry. Leather goods include bags, leashes and earrings; while glass items include wind chimes, plates and beads. Wood is featured in cutting boards, bowls and tools, and there are wildlife paintings on wood and rock. There are also watercolors, oil landscapes, photographs, prints and greeting cards from a roster of over 60 local and regional artists.
Many artists are participating in the gallery’s 20 percent off holiday sale.
Holiday shopping at the Plumas Arts Gallery offers the opportunity to benefit the local creative community, not only by supporting artists, but also by helping Plumas Arts do the important work it does to enhance the area’s quality of life. That includes keeping the Town Hall Theatre doors open for community use; supporting cultural events and art programs in the schools; preserving local historical buildings; providing support services to artists, agencies and the business community; and more.
The Plumas Arts Gallery and office hours are Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The “adjunct gallery” at Patti’s Thunder Cafe, 557 Lawrence St. in Quincy, will feature Trisha Aitken’s one-woman handcrafted “Spirit Catcher” hoops made with fiber, fabric, yarn and objects found and “spirited” by her. Most hoops require weeks of work and can contain thousands of stitches, loops and yards of materials.Using the skills of circular weaving, crochet, knitting and sewing, these whimsical arthoops are made to adorn walls, windows or gardens.
