Plumas Arts and the Plumas National Forest are pleased to host an evening of readings and reflections from the Literary Artist in Residence at the Black Mountain Lookout for 2017, Margaret Garcia. The program will take place on Wednesday, October 25, 2017 at the Plumas Arts Gallery at 525 Main Street in Quincy beginning at 5:30pm.
For the month of October the gallery is also featuring paintings by the 2017 Visual Artist in Residence for 2017, Sally Yost, as well as paintings by former visual artists in residence Lucinda Woods and James Johnson.
Garcia will be reading poems from a chapbook she has compiled from her time at the lookout called "What the Wind Brought Me," which she presents as a reflection upon the wildness of Nature and it’s clarity of purpose. Some of her work is a tribute to a fellow writer and artist Farrell Cunningham, who she credits as the first friend to show her this beautiful region that has become her adopted home. Garcia will also speak (as a busy working mother and artist) to the need of alone time to write.
The presentation is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served.
The Artist in Residence in the Black Mountain Look-out is a collaborative project between Plumas Arts and the Forest Service. With this program, the Plumas National Forest offers an opportunity for artists to spend several days at Black Mountain Lookout to draw upon the breathtaking landscapes of the Plumas National Forest for inspiration.
