In April 2009, Avenue 9 Gallery (founded in 2004) became a professional artists’ guild with 20 members who make major decisions collectively, always have representative work on display, and once yearly are ‘featured artist’ in the gallery. The guild also offers group shows open to guest artists, collaborates with advanced students and faculty from California State University, Chico, and Butte College, and co-hosts the Pacific Flyway Uptown-Downtown art exhibition, a part of the annual Snow Goose Festival. Avenue 9 continues to organize programs that bring attention to the natural and built treasures of our local environment and regularly offers demonstrations and other opportunities to make art in the studio.



In 1982, Jacki Headley and Graham Hutton had a dream of creating a store that would showcase local artists and exemplify the town they loved so much.  Today, that store housing almost 400 different artists and vendors with more added every year.

Made in Chico can be found in the historic Nettelmann Building; where the original floors, ceilings and walls portray a sense of warmth and history. There are still bare bones from the saddle and harness store built in this location in the early 20th Century along with many scars from Parker Hardware. Each store has made its mark on this building and we are delighted to do the same.
