Quincy Chamber of Commerce - Event Information


Event Name:Plumas Arts Gallery Opening featuring Chris Mehne
Event Type(s):Member Event
Description:In the early 1970’s after returning from Vietnam, where he served as an Army Medical Corpsman, Chris began his creative pursuits in a therapeutic capacity. During his travels, unable to pack around a hoard of painting supplies, he began his journey with embroidery. Recovering from a silent heart attack in February, 2015, he had a realization that it was time to reignite the art within.  Returning to his beloved Plumas County in September 2015, be began, what is to date, a 64-month odyssey in hand embroidered works of art, calling this effort of needlework, Every Stitch Matters.  The original designs and images are drawn from a host of sources and ideas.  The larger pieces (14” to 18” hoops) can take up to 200 to 240 hours to complete, requiring great patience and a tremendous amount of needle threading!  Smaller, more detailed works and patches require splitting the six-strand floss down sometimes to a single strand to achieve detail.
 
More information about Chris’s work can be found at plumasarts.org/April-2022. The Plumas Arts Gallery and office hours are Wednesday thru Friday, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Plumas Arts will be open Saturdays 11am to 4pm starting Saturday April 23rd.
