Plumas Arts Tour: County-wide Open Studios
UPDATE: The Plumas Arts Tour and Philip Hyde Studio Open Studio went well. Though participation in the Plumas Arts Tour reportedly fell off from last year, the people who did come out were a delight to meet and talk with. Sales were good. David Leland Hyde’s 2009 Indian Creek Below Indian Valley, limited edition of 100, was a hot item in the 8 X 12 archival digital print size. Look for a possible price increase within the next few months on Indian Creek Below Indian Valley. If you are interested in acquiring a fine art archival digital print, we encourage you to act now.
Plumas Arts, a Quincy, California based non-profit art organization serving all of Plumas County and the Feather River Region, presents the Second Annual Plumas Arts Tour and Barn Quilt Trail. Philip Hyde’s personal artist’s studio, built by the artist in 1965, will feature an open house for the first time ever in history hosted by Philip Hyde’s son David Leland Hyde. For more information please call 530-284-7434 or see the Plumas Arts Tour Guidebook. (See locations to obtain a guidebook below.)

Last year the Barn Quilt Trail and the Plumas Arts Tour were combined events, this year they are linked, but separate events with separate maps. Barn Quilts are painted wooden squares that resemble bed quilts. Last year’s Plumas Arts Tour Guidebook invited participants to, “Experience Plumas County…” The Plumas Arts Tour Guidebook is available for only $10.00 at the Capitol Arts Center Gallery at 525 Main Street, Quincy, California; in Graeagle, California at the Red House Art Gallery, 126 Highway 89; in Chester, California at Good Vibrations, 278 Main Street; and in Greenville, California at Sterling Sage, 214 Main Street. For more information call Plumas Arts Tour 530-283-3402 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. The guidebook for the first Plumas Arts Tour said:
Travel along the shores of Lake Almanor, to the township of Chester, just over the county line into neighboring Westwood, through artist studios and dozens of painted barn quilts in Indian Valley: Greenville, Taylorsville, Crescent Mills. Stop in art galleries and artist’s studios in and around the charming town of Quincy where the American Valley also offers a number of painted barn quilts. At the Feather River Canyon gateway to the arts tour, part of the Plumas Arts Tour, you will find cabin galleries at the R&R RV Park and Hot Springs. Mohawk Valley artists share their work at a studio in Clio, a gallery at Graeagle Park and and the historic Barn at the junction of California Highways 89 and 70 a few blocks from the Mohawk Valley Artists’ Guild Quilts on Fences Project in Blairsden, California. Spend the day, Spend the night. Stay with us for longer. Get to know our beautiful landscapes, local color and culture and you are certain to return to Plumas County and the Plumas Arts Tour again.
This year’s description of Indian Valley artists said:
In Taylorsville, painter Sally Yost hosts fellow painter Norma Lewis at her studio. Greenville stops include Sterling Sage on Main Street and glass artist Ruth McRoberts shares space with Jean Wendorf who offers jewelry and painted barn quilt miniatures. Be sure to stop by the photography studio of legendary photographer Philip Hyde and son David Leland Hyde.
Legendary? Philip Hyde might chuckle at that one. Anyway, come on out and enjoy the fun…
