Gen- eral admission is $10, $7.50 for students and seniors. For more information, call 283- 6320 or visit plumasmuse- The event is made possible by the generosity of Plumas County Facilities and a grant from Poets & Writers of California. This show is a fundraiser for the museum, which has recently suffered severe bud- get cuts. The museum has lost its service and supply funding, the museum assis- tant is at 75 percent staffing and the director has been re- duced to a 36-hour work- week. Maurice has spent the last 20 years as a cowboy, horse wrangler and packer in the Eastern Sierra and high deserts of Nevada. He is now a sought-after entertainer working all over California and the West. He has hosted television specials and re- ceived the coveted "Will Rogers Cowboy Award." The Plumas County Muse- um will present an art open- ing Friday, Sept. 7, 5 - 7 p.m. in the Stella Fay Miller Mez- zanine Gallery. The exhibi- tion, entitled "Parallax -- Viewing Quincy History Through a Skewed Lens," will feature recent works by Chris Bolton, who will be present for the opening. "If you are like me, cre- ative, irreverent and prone to flights of fancy," said Bolton, "then hour three at the scanner in the research library of the museum leads you inevitably to thoughts of parallel universes that fol- lowed slightly divergent paths from the generally ac- cepted One. "What if youcould go back in time in a '54 DeSoto? What if the rules had been ever so slightly different? What if, that Saturday morning in Award-winning cowboy poet Lrry Maurice will perform in Chester as a fundraiser for the Plumas County Museum. File photo May, that founding father ,had turned left instead of right at the end of Main Street? "If, like me, you are gifted in the dark arts of Photoshop and already have the historic images in one hand and the vast expanses of the Internet in the other ... Well, most likely, you'd get stuff like this ..." Bolton will donate 100 per- cent of all proceeds from the sale of these works of art to the Plumas County Museum Association, a registered 501(c)(3) California nonprofit corporation dedicated to the preservation and presenta- tion of Plumas County histo- ry to Plumas County's resi- dents and visitors. This also means that all purchases from the show will be tax- deductible. The Plumas County Muse- um is again hosting its popu- lar cemetery tour in Quincy. This year, the event is called "Beyond the Pale," and it is set for Sept. 15, 3 p.m. - dusk. Tickets cost $65 and in- clude dinner, dessert, a tour, entertainment, a silent auc- tion, historical personality re-enactments and a glass of wine. The event benefits the museum, which is facing sig- nificant cutbacks. Tickets are limited, and the event sells out. To buy tickets, call the museum at 283-6320, visit plumasmuse- or ask any Plumas County Museum trustee. Tickets are also for sale at Epilog Books: Combined effort TAKE.
