Mark your calendars everyone, because Chaparral Artists will be celebrating with Gubler's Orchid Festival during the first weekend of October - 10/2/2021 and 10/3/2021 (Saturday & Sunday).
What does this mean for us? Chaparral Artist volunteers will be in charge of setup on Friday, October 1 where we prepare a small section of the room for youth painting- usually 2 long tables with tablecloths, signs, and supplies. We will be able to hang orchid themed artwork on the walls making the weekend an impromptu gallery showing, and those that plan on volunteering during Saturday and Sunday will be able to bring in some of their own art for sale, to be setup on a midsized table or half-table. During the weekend, we need volunteers interested in managing the Chaparral table and answering questions about the art group. We need volunteers interested in painting with the children. And if you wish to share you work with the visitors, you will need to be onsite with you section of a table.
If you are interested, please reach out and we will add you to the list of volunteers for this year's Gubler's Orchid Festival display opportunity.
Chaparral Artists have been so lucky to work with Chris Gubler over the years, and we certainly missed having fun with everyone last year. As you can see from the photos, we have shared art and laughs and great amusement while painting with kids or chatting with visitors.
We highly encourage you to create a few orchid inspired art pieces to share on the walls! Photographs, low-profile three-dimensional mixed media that is capable of hanging, and painterly pieces in all mediums are all welcome. These works will be listed for sale so do not pass up the opportunity to share and sell your work.
We understand that precautions might affect the celebration, out of necessity, and we are watching closely for updates. Stay safe and keep on creating as we lead up to the 2021 Gubler's Orchid Festival! Watch for immediate updates coming directly from Gubler Orchids by on their social media accounts:
