We have changed the location of our painting session because the Richmond Art center is holding their Winter Arts Festival there this Saturday. We will now meet at the parking lot of Food Mart (1835 Rumrill Blvd), at the corner of Rumrill and Market. There is a salvage business full of wonderful junk (This and That), colorful markets and businesses, and an industrial feel to the area many will appreciate.
Directions: From 80, take the El Portal in the west direction (don't go to El Sobrante). Go under the freeway and into the city of San Pablo. Continue along the El Portal. Drive all the way past Contra Costa College to your left. Make a right on San Pablo Ave, and almost immediately, at the very next intersection, make a left on Rumrill. Pass Broadway, 19th and 20th Streets, Brookside Dr, Folsom, Dover and Mission Aves. Immediately after Mission, look to the right side of the road to find the Food Mart. Park anywhere inside their parking lot. Meet us near the taco truck if it is there (it usually is). Bathrooms and water at the Food Mart. Bring a cell phone in case you get lost.
