Mira Talbott-Pope | Wearables

After 30 years of living and working in the Chico/ and Cohasset area, I moved to Guatemala in 2008 and have had my workshop there every since. What a pleasure to find myself able to weave my love of Guatemalan textiles and painting with the art and social ambience of Chico with coming to the Art at the Matador event for 4 years or so and now to the new venue Chico ART Festival.

Cinde Nelson enjoys the process of working with watercolor and finds the white of the paper and the transparency of the colors fresh and inspiring. Preview some of her work here. Meet her and see more of her watercolors at the Chico ART Festival, Friday and Saturday, May 12 & 13, outdoors on the beautiful grounds of St John’s Episcopal Church on Floral Avenue in Chico.
