The Yolo Arts Art & Ag Project held their April outing at the Clarence Scott Hill Ranch in Winters on April 10 and 12, 2014. Dozens of artists showed up on location to take advantage of the blessing of being invited onto Yolo County agricultural and ranch lands in order to capture the essence in paint, pen and photography.
Each month from February through October a different location is featured on a Thursday and Saturday. The outing may take artists to farms, ranches or historical addresses. Many of these destinations are steeped in rich family and regional history that owners are happy to share. Mr. William A. Chapman made himself available to visitors during the April outing in order to answer questions and help make the history come alive with stories about the ancestral ranch settled and developed in the 1850's by his great grandparents George Washington Scott and Amaratta (Emma) Bloomer Scott.
The Clarence Scott outing offered artists many picturesque opportunities with a ranch house over 100 years old, barns, a saddle house, green pastures, rolling hills and ravines, as well as old farming equipment, silos and so much more.
