PAA artists have been invited to attend and demonstrate their art at Passport Weekend at Cielo Estates Winery (Ponderosa Road in Shingle Springs) the first two weekends in April. Passport Weekend is an event held by participating local wineries where attendees purchase a ticket and visit the various wineries for wine-tasting. You should prepare for a crowd.
Each artist will be demonstrating the “art” of their own art at Cielo. Feel free to bring your own equipment; set up and let those creative juices flow. You can pass out your business cards and/or brochures. We also ask that you pass out PAA’s flyer advertising our “Art in the Vines” event to be held in October. The dates are April 5 & 6 and April 12 & 13 (first two weekends in April). Plan on staying 2 to 4 hours between 10am and 4pm on the day of your choice.
If you would like to enjoy this trememdous opportunity of getting your art out before the public, please contact Nancy Bedeger with your preferred day and hours. She can be reached at (530) 676-2476 or e-mail at .
