There will be a fun painting competition in Chico on May 17 sponsored by Avenue 9 Gallery in collaboration with the Parks Dept. Bidwell Mansion is an historic building in Chico, the Bidwells were a prominent family in the history of the city. Their home and the grounds are open to the public, and lovely to see. The paint-out is designed to call attention to the many old specimen trees the Bidwells planted.
The event is from 10-12 on Saturday. Artists of all kinds are invited to participate. I will be there!
