Members of the former "Avenue 9 Art Guild" are having a reunion exhibit, and the opening reception Friday evening will benefit the Museum of Northern California Art (MONCA).
It takes place at MCM Vintage, 260 East First Street in Chico. The reception is from 6-9 p.m. Friday, December 4th. The exhibit will be on display through January 3rd. Proceeds from beverage sales and a suggested $5 donation for reception tickets will be donated to MONCA.
Organizer Claudia Schwarz, a nationally known Glass Artist, says, "It's just over a year since the death of Maria Phillips, Avenue 9 Gallery owner, and it seemed appropriate timing for us to have a reunion. Maria added so much to all our lives both professionally and personally."
Phillips worked to establish ChiVAA (Chico Visual Arts Alliance), the Art Map and Art at the Matador along with other community contributions
The reunion exhibit will include works of 12 former Avenue 9 Guild members including sculptors, photographers, ceramists, painters and fiber artists.
MONCA is dedicating one of its rooms in the Veteran's Memorial Hall to Maria for her support of the Chico Art Community.
