Art & Oysters
November 4 at 4:00 pm - 8:00 pm$40 – $75.00
Yuba-Sutter has its share of seafood celebrations like the beloved Crab Feed and Lobster Feed and now a new delicacy from the briny depths of the California and northwest coast will be joining the party. “Art & Oysters” is a new event designed to bring this beloved bivalve front and center.
Sponsored by Yuba Sutter Arts and South Yuba County Rotary, Art & Oysters will be held on Sunday November 4 from 4 – 8pm. The location will be Justin’s Kitchen, 628 Plumas Street in Yuba City. Advance tickets are $40 each or two for $75 and include all you can eat oysters and side dishes and $50 at the door if available. Tickets are available at yubasutterarts.org, The event is limited to the first 120 guests so do not delay if planning to attend. The live music, art, atmosphere and great company are all included. Proceeds from the event will benefit youth education and arts programs in Yuba-Sutter.
So what might one expect at an event titled “Art & Oysters” you ask? “He was a bold man that first ate an oyster,” or so said author Jonathan Swift who wrote “Gulliver’s Travels.” No boldness will be required as Justin France, proprietor of Justin’s Kitchen on Plumas Street will be presenting an array of the finest oysters from the north coast prepared in a variety of delectable ways. And for those who don’t yet have their “oyster legs,” chicken and a wonderful array of side dishes will be available.
What about the “art” in Art & Oysters? In addition to the culinary shellfish centerpieces, we will have artists on-site talking about their work and art in general. There will be arts and crafts items like hand-painted oyster holiday ornaments created by noted Tole artist, Verna Cook-Stoddard. In addition, there will be oyster wreaths, oyster lamps, oyster candleholders and other custom creations.
Live music will be provided by Joe Moye on guitar with a selection of popular cover music.
Come support this second annual event with a special twist. And remember, just like in the “Oyster and the Carpenter” by Lewis Carroll, “O Oysters,’ said the Carpenter, you’ve had a pleasant run!
Shall we be trotting home again? But answer came there none — And this was scarcely odd, because
they’d eaten every one.”
