Bulletin, Progressive, Record, Reporter Wednesday, July 21, 2010 1SB in The 41st annual Almanor Art Show takes place on August 8th this year. Plumas Arts administers the juried show on the Collins Pine lawn in Chester. Photos submitted Confused about which arts and crafts show to attend this summer? Make sure you at- tend the 41st Almanor Art Show Aug. 7-8 on the Collins Pine lawn on Highway 36, in Chester. The fine arts and crafts show features the work of professional artists from Northern California, Oregon and Nevada, with dozens of booths brimming with origi- nal, artful, interesting and sometimes unusual merchan- dise will. Admission to the show is free and hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Saturday and 11 a.m. - 4 p.m., Sunday. Plumas Arts has worked to maintain the excellent reputa- tion of the Almanor Art Show. The show has long ranked as one of the most re- spected exhibitions of fine arts and crafts in professional trade publications, among artists and by the hundreds of visitors who have planned their annual vacations and visits to this annual art show over the last four decades. The Almanor Art Show is a juried show; artists who want to participate must meet spe- cific quality guidelines for their work and craftsmanship to ensure high quality and unique original art and crafts are available in a full range of prices. The show offers a variety of fine arts and crafts, including paintings, drawings, sculp- ture, pottery, photography, stained glass, clothing, metal work, jewelry, furniture, country crafts and more. Unique in many ways, it is one of very few art shows hosted by a local nonprofit or- ganization. Private, out-of- area promoters produce sev- eral other Plumas County summer art shows; not this one. Revenues generated at the Almanor Art Show are reinvested in the county. The overall goal of the show is to showcase original art and the artists who creat- ed it in a pleasant space. Un- like some other art shows, Plumas Arts does not cram in as many booths as possible into too small a space. The Collins Pine lawn provides ample space between booths and plenty of space to sit in the shade with family and friends and enjoy a beautiful summer day. The show began on the shores of Lake Almanor in 1969, hosted by a group of A1- ma~r~ Basin resident artists. When Plumas Arts was formed in the early 1980's one of the organization's very first projects was to take over the administration of the art show, at the request of the artists. When The Almanor Art Show outgrew its original home on the lakeshore, coor- dinators moved the Collins Pine lawn. In 1988, with the support of the Collins Pine management, Caltrans and lo- cal law enforcement officials, the show moved to its perma- nent home on the Collins Pine lawn.
