Joining Sandy and local artists will be members of the Vacaville Art League and Gallery! Established in January of 1963, The Vacaville Art League is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the development and promotion of the visual arts.  Located in the 129-year-old Segura home on Monte Vista Avenue, the Gallery has provided a place for the public to participate directly in the visual arts since opening on March 16, 1968.  Come meet the members of the Vacaville Art League and learn about their gallery, events and classes.

The McBride Senior Center Acoustic Jammers, under the direction of Terry and Leslie Cloper, will be performing at the Peña Adobe Park during the “Artists at the Adobe” event.  Members from the Jam Group sing and play a variety of instruments including the guitar, banjo, mandolin, fiddle and harmonica.  They meet the first and third Wednesday of the month at the McBride Senior Center at 91 Townsquare in downtown Vacaville.

Come listen to music, visit with our local artists, chat with members of the Vacaville Art League Gallery, and tour the historic Peña Adobe and Museum.

Bring your art supplies and join the fun or bring a picnic and enjoy the wildlife and scenery.  Last year’s event included over 100 participants.  Docents will be on hand to answer questions and conduct tours of the Peña Adobe, built in 1842 by the Peña family, who with the Vaca family settled in the Lagoon Valley.  Visit the adjacent Mowers-Goheen Museum and see our collection of artifacts and a woolly mammoth bone found locally near Putah Creek.  This event is free!  For questions in advance, call (707) 447-0518.
