Paintings created at Shinn Park

Submitted By Al Minard

By invitation, eight models in period costume recently strolled the grounds of the historic Shinn Park and Arboretum for an afternoon of painting by 17 local artists. Over 20 paintings were completed onsite featuring the Shinn House, models, the Arboretum, and beautiful gardens.

In conjunction with local artist Jan Schafir, Mission Coffee Roasting Company will be hosting an exhibit of these paintings to enjoy and purchase from September 1 to 30. Fremont artists participating in this show include Robyn Leimer, Grace Rankin, Jan Schafir, and Emi Tabuchi. A reception will be held on Sunday, September 8 with some of the models who posed for the paintings in attendance wearing their costumes.

The historic Shinn House and Arboretum are one of Fremont's less well-known historic sites, and this exhibition is a good way to see the Shinn House, built in 1876, through the eyes of an artist.

For more information about the exhibit, please contact Charlotte Britton by e-mail at For information about Mission Coffee Roasting Company, please call (510) 623-6920.
