Tour de Cluck organizers have issued a call to artists for chicken-, barnyard- and bicycle-themed art for its silent auction fundraiser. The popular bike tour of Davis chicken coops returns May 26.

The auction will accompany the third annual paean to poultry, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. in Central Park, Fourth and C streets.

Auction organizers are eager to fill the Tour de Cluck tent with an eggs-citing array of items certain to attract particularly plucky bidders.

Artists of all kinds are invited to submit work in a variety of media created in both two and three dimensions. All work must incorporate the selected theme — chickens, barnyards or bicycles — however subtly or boldly. Each item must be original.

In order to enhance the coherence of the exhibit and to maximize the available space, standard submissions are limited to a maximum of 12 inches in any dimension. A limited number of larger pieces will be accepted. Further information can be found at the Tour de Cluck website, www.tourdecluck.org.

The deadline for completion of the silent auction intention-to-submit form is March 12. The art submission form is due April 23. Both are brief and can be completed online at the Tour de Cluck website. The actual artwork must be delivered to the auction team by April 30.

For more information, contact Robin Souza at rosouza@sbcglobal.net or call (530) 400-5544.

Proceeds from the auction of all artwork will benefit Davis Farm to School’s efforts to support local food in a healthy school environment.
