Sweet Art celebrates Hellie Blythe

February 1, 2019 - PASO Magazine

Iconic Paso Robles artist Hellie Blythe will be honored at Studios on the Park’s 2019 Sweet Art event on Tuesday, February 12. The annual fundraising luncheon will begin at noon and is a celebration of the best artist and contributors in our community.

“Guests are invited to gather to put the ‘fun’ in fundraising in honor of the talented, generous, creative, funny Paso Robles icon and our dear friend, Hellie Blythe,” Studios on the Park Director Sasha Irving said.
Blythe’s biography on the Studios website states she was born with a silver paintbrush in her hand, soon graduating to a mural brush, painting sets for Pioneer Players’ Stage Productions. At the age of 70, she became a violinist, delighting her family with recitals of “Happy Birthday” in Japanese. Inspired by foreign artists, she spent several seasons painting en plein air in France, escaping her glassblowing addiction. Lately, Hellie has enjoyed being with her fellow artists at Studios on the Park, where her creations are displayed.

The event, held at Studios on the Park, located at 1130 Pine St. in downtown Paso Robles, features a delicious lunch by Cass Catering, entertainment, door prizes by professional artists, and more.

Tickets are $60 per person. For reservations or more information, call Sasha at 805-238-9800.
