  The 44th annual Almanor Art Show takes place Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 3 and 4, on the Collins Pine Lawn on Highway 36 in Chester. Show hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday. Admission to the event is free.

  Ongoing since 1969, this is Plumas County’s oldest exhibition for sale of visual arts and fine crafts. Artists from near and far grace the show with their original painting, drawings, photographs, jewelry, pottery, furniture, sculptures, wood, metal, fabric and whimsical art in a full range of prices.

  The location on the cool, green Collins Pine Lawn and the surroundings of Lake Almanor in Chester offers a beautiful setting to enjoy and explore that fine art. Food vendors provide on-site options — or visitors can arrange a lunch at one of Chester’s eating establishments as part of their day’s outing.

    Live music will also be provided under the shade of centuries-old trees. Bolivian musician Oscar Reynolds will perform on pan flute and guitar between noon and 4 p.m. each day.

  Many artists return to this location year after year from all around the western U.S. Organizers also appreciate that each year brings new talented artists to the fold.

  Plumas Arts has coordinated the Almanor Arts Show since 1983. Event proceeds support art education and cultural programs throughout Plumas County. For more information about this event or Plumas Arts go to the website at plumasarts.org or call the office at 283-3402.
