It is time to prepare for the fall art tour which will be held the weekends of September 26/27 and October 3/4. Please join PAA in this annual event.
This year, we have established a little smaller perimeter which is Eastern Placerville, Diamond Springs-El Dorado, Cameron Park-Rescue and Coloma. If you are not within those areas and have not already arranged to share with someone, we will notify you which studios are available. In the past we have found that a lot of our visitors like to see several artists at one location but single studios are certainly welcome too. This will be handled by the date the application is received.
This is a rain or shine event and the fees are non-refundable. The due date for applications is June 1. The application fee is $80.00 for members of PAA and $105.00 for non-members with the option of applying $25.00 of that amount toward membership. If after all the costs are paid and there is a reasonable amount left over, it will be divided equally and refunded to each artist based on the $80.00.
