There will a barbecue all fired up and ready to go and a no-host beverage bar with beer and some wine. Admis-, sion is free to members. The membership picnic will kick off a yearlong celebra- tion of local arts and culture. Plumas Arts turns 30 this year. The organization will host events for the next 12 months to celebrate that mon- umental accomplishment. Dozens of events will cover the diverse palette of the work that it does -- from art open- ings and Words & Music, to some of the biggest events the county has to offer, as well as numerous community-build- ing services and successful partnerships with other local cultural groups. For such a modestly budget- ed local arts agency, Plumas Arts has an ambitious scope of services for Plumas County. It coordinates a cultural events listing and planning calendar for the entire coun- ty, manages an Artists in the Schools program, hosts a gallery for regional artists, produces some of the county's best events (Mountain Har- vest in October, Taste of Plumas in April, Almanor Art Show in August) and brings world class artists to local stages and fosters rising stars at Words & Music, art open- ings and art walks through- out the year. i The 'organization is also re- sponsible for keeping the county's last picture show, and the only fixed-seat perfor- mance venue, open. That has become an ongo- ing challenge in this econo- my, especi.ally considering the needs of a facility that was built in 1937. So what is in store for mem- bers in the coming year? There will be free stuff. In ad- dition to the 2011 Arts & Liter- ary Calendar, there will also be new incentives. Members who donate $100 or more will receive a free Bob Pfenning limited edition print or there will be free movie passes for donations of $50 or more. The organization is also planning a "members only" free movie this winter at the Town Hall Theatre. "The list is evolving," said Plumas Arts Director Roxanne Valladao. "Plumas Arts has been in- spired by a philosophy float- ing around in the arts agency field of not letting the econom- ic crisis deflate our spirits. "As you can well imagine, the economy is hitting us all pretty hard -- just like so many others. But we are pur- posefully focusing on the arts and artists as means to keep community connected, keep us working together and keep- ing in mind all the many things we have to celebrate. Hopefully this attitude will get us through this." "We have been fortunate enough to win some grants to allow us to maintain that valiant spirit," Valladao said. In the lagt year, Plumas Arts received ARRA grants to help with keeping staff and programs from cuts. It also re- ceived funds to support artist fees from the James Irvine Foundation and California Arts Council's Department of Justice Performing Arts & Artist in the Schools Grant. :"One of our members once commented, 'I)an't imagine Plumas County without Plumas Arts.' If we can main- tain a solid andl spirited mem- bership base of Isupport, hope- fully that will not be some- thing that any of us have to imagine," she sgid.
