Announcing the opening of Vacaville Museum’s newest endeavor, the Little Art Gallery, Thursday, March 15, 2018, 5-7 pm.

What has been the Museum Store for the last two decades inside the Buck Avenue museum has been converted into a small art gallery featuring the work of regional artists with a focus on local scenes and themes. The inaugural opening of the LITTLE ART GALLERY will be Thursday, March 15 from 5 -7. The public is welcome. The work of five regional artists will be on display. A percentage of the proceeds from art sales will benefit the Museum. The Museum will host monthly at openings on the Third Thursday of each month thereafter.

At the Third Thursday opening each month a different artist will be showcased. The SHOWCASE artist will have an opportunity to display additional works at the opening reception. Our SHOWCASE artist for the March opening is Judy Neal, a life-long artist who turned to painting in 1990 after a career in graphic design. After her family moved to Northern California in 1998, the richness of local history and the aesthetic beauty of the surrounding land became her muse.

The March opening will also feature Robert Biale Winery, of Napa, who will share their wines with the guests. Robert Biale Winery has been recognized as an award winning winery specializing in heritage Vineyard Zinfandel and Petite Sirah. This year they were named “2018 Winery of the Year” by the American Fine Wine Competition (AFWC).

The art will be on display and available for purchase during the Museum’s normal hours, Wednesday – Sunday 1- 4:30.

Rainy Day Fundraiser Saturday, April 21, 2018 6-9:00 pm Museum Gallery

Let’s talk about saving for a rainy day!

This has been a year of structural improvements and preparedness for the future. The Museum Board is committed to creating a set aside fund that will help the Museum take on new and identified projects concurrent with its annual operating budget. Since the economic recession, the Museum has been tightening its belt and running with bare essentials. Now is the time to create a sustainable future with dedicated financial reserves.

Our first Rainy Day Fundraiser will be held Saturday, April 21, 2018 at the Museum with dinner and live auction for the Rainy Day Fund. With a successful fundraiser, we will be singing in the rain! Limited seating, get your tickets early! Join us for dinner by Erica Marie and a lively auction with Joe Gates all to support Vacaville Museum. ( tickets $60 each, seating limited)
