Ginger Peña of Angelus Oaks occupied one of the 63 booths at the Redlands Festival of Arts on Saturday.

She specializes in paintings of Redlands’ historic buildings, including many that were candidates for the Museum of Redlands such as the original city hall and the post office on Brookside Avenue, said Nelda Stuck, one of the leaders of the museum campaign.

Char Burgess, vice president of external relations for the University of Redlands, and Shelli Stockton, the university’s director of alumni relations, also stopped by Peña’s booth on Saturday.

They commissioned a small painting to auction off during next week’s trip to Mohonk Mountain House in the Hudson River Valley in upstate New York.

Burgess and Stockton are among the hosts of 90 Redlanders visiting the estate purchased by Albert Smiley 150 years ago.
