Continuing since 1969, it is the oldest and one of the best exhibitions of fine arts and crafts in Plumas County in several counties. Artists from near and far decorate the show with their original paintings, drawings, photographs, jewelry, furniture, sculptures, wood, metal, fabric and whimsical art in a full range of prices. Many artists from Plumas County will also be featured.
This show is a unique and wonderful way to spend the day and find many beautiful items to take home. There will be six artists and six artists specializing in woodworking. Be prepared to see high-quality fine art, great body products, fine leather and two furniture manufacturers. Spend a few hours relaxing, enjoying an idyllic moment of a charming event. Explore the art, have lunch, listen to music and then go back for this art purchase that will still hold your memory, and head back for more music. There is no more pleasant place to spend a summer afternoon.
Fiesta Fresh food truck will offer delicious meals, many drinks, shaving ice and other delicacies. Bakers Choice corn will appear fresh at the show.
Featured musicians Hank and Shaydri Alric are a dynamic duo of American daughter and father who will play throughout the art show. Their music has proved attractive in various genres and generations. Hank & Shaidri draws from a huge reservoir of American traditional music, along with the work of some of our best terrestrial songwriters and a rich selection of original material. The sum of these parts gives a great range of songs in different styles, all of which they make their own. Their delivery is natural and unpretentious.
That’s why the 2022 Almanor Art Show Hank & Shaidri will be supported by Bill Lyles of Boyce, Idaho, on bass. He was a fun man and a great player in many genres. He is a passionate professional who always gives his best, and his best is really great. Expect Bill and Hank to begin music with an instrumental set of standards, familiar and eternal favorites from the great American songbook.
Plumas Arts hopes to see you in Chester for the fine arts, crafts, music and food!
