Summer Season Celebration

See art, talk with the artists and make art — all amid a festive atmosphere of hula-hooping and Whymcycles, music and ice cream. Free for the whole family!

The museum's summer exhibitions run from June 30 to Sept. 2, but the "opening" event will be during this Summer Season Celebration. It will include a conversation at 3 p.m. with the artists, Susan Swartz and Andrea Chung, "This is Our Time," discussing how they see the world and their place as artists, reflecting and bringing focus to how the world is seen. Conversation facilitated by Jessica Wimbley, director of museum education.

The program also includes the hula-hooping Hoop Dance group (hula hoops will be available for museum visitors to use), a parade of the novel bicycle creations known as Whymcycles, music by the Cloud Hats — and the perfect treat for summer: free ice cream.

Artist-Led Workshop: "Drawn From Nature"

The Jan Shrem and Maria Manetti Shrem Museum introduces fee-based workshops where people can experiment with some of the techniques exhibiting artists are using. Faith Sponsler, M.F.A. ’17, leads the first program, “Drawn From Nature": Learn to make natural inks from oak galls and other natural materials. Use these inks to sketch and draw as Sponsler leads you on a ramble through the arboretum. She will share her creative process and encourage you to find yours through a series of experimental drawing prompts. Each participant receives two jars of handmade ink to take home. Bring a picnic. Fee includes all supplies and materials. Ages 16 and up.

Two other workshops are scheduled this summer: “Cyanotype Lab” (July 28) and “Abstract Responses to Nature” (Aug. 4). See separate listings. If you sign up for all three workshops, you will receive a 10 percent discount. Advance registration is required; call 530-752-8012 from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Artist-Led Workshop: "Abstract Responses to Nature"

The Jan Shrem and Maria Manetti Shrem Museum introduces fee-based workshops where people can experiment with some of the techniques exhibiting artists are using. Angela Willetts, M.F.A. ’16 leads “Abstract Responses to Nature”: Try a new take on plein-air painting. Begin with a visit to Susan Swartz's exhibition, Breaking Away, 2006-2018, to see how the artist abstracts the natural landscape. Then immerse yourself in natural environments as you explore abstract responses to nature in the arboretum. Experiment with paint application and intuitive mark-making — dripping, wiping, glazing, spilling and layering — to capture the infinite energy and texture of the natural world. Bring a picnic. Acrylic supplies included in fee. Ages 16 and up.
