The Peña Adobe Historical Society will host their annual “Artists at the Adobe” at the Peña Adobe Park in Vacaville, on Saturday April 6, from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. The park is located in Vacaville at Peña Adobe Road off Interstate 80 to the left of Lagoon Valley Regional Park’s entrance.

Fairfield’s Sandy Imperatori and members from art workshops she has conducted in Rancho Solano and Vacaville will be at Peña Adobe Park for our returning plein air event. Imperatori studied BFA Graphic Design at Carnegie Mellon University and has conducted the Plein Air Workshop in Virginia City, Nevada for over 20 years. The former Gallery Director of the Fairfield Visual Arts Association, Sandy began drawing and painting as a young child, and has been painting watercolor for 25 years, which has led to several awards.

Joining Imperatori 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.

Bring your art supplies and join the fun or bring a picnic and enjoy the wildlife and listen to the music of the McBride Acoustic Jammers under the direction of Terry and Leslie Cloper. The Jammers 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.

This annual artists’ event has included over 100 participants in previous years. 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 the 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 or visit our website www.penaadobe.org.
