Seldom do fairy tales come true as they do in Downtown Chico! The month-long art walk begins on Friday, October 5th, and will feature an exciting mixture of paintings, ceramics, and sculpture produced by local artists. On opening night from 5-8pm over twenty complimentary receptions will take place, with tastings from eight local wineries, refreshments, appetizers, and musical accompaniment. Vibrant color, exquisite forms, and elegant earthenware await adventurers downtown as the perfect compliment to a Friday evening!
Apparently captivated by all the fabulous artwork on display at downtown businesses, fairies have conjured a dozen or so dainty doors for children to seek by which they may have the chance to procure their very own fairy garden! In order to gain access, however, they must locate the doors through which the fairies pass into our world. Being no trifling matter, participants will be provided with passports, which upon being filled will qualify them for a drawing.
Wine glasses will be provided for tastings at the following Signature Receptions: LaRocca Vineyards Tasting Room, Made in Chico, Kirk’s Jewelry, Zucchini & Vine, Campus Bicycle, James Snidle Fine Arts Gallery, Diamond W Western Wear, Formal Education, and Chico Paper Company.
A copy of the program, showing all participating businesses and artists, available HERE.
There will also be a Wine & Paint art class hosted by Christine Man Shane in front of Parkside Taphouse!
It is a fantastic opportunity to become acquainted with downtown culture, local art, and local artists while engaging in the hunt for fairy doors!
