PLACERVILLE ARTS ASSOCIATION
48TH NATIONAL MOTHER LODE ART EXHIBITION
AUGUST 3RD - 17th
We are so pleased to be presenting our premier art event August 3-17. The show opens on Sunday August 3 at 1:30pm at the Shakespeare Club in Placerville on Bedford Drive. Please note this is our August PAA meeting. The Judge of Awards - Ken Waterstreet, will be presenting the program, discussing his approach to art and commenting on some of the award winners.
This is a very special meeting and we hope you can join us.
At our July meeting and when you bring in your accepted paintings, you will have a chance to sign-up to ‘sit the show’ during the two weeks our show is open. The shifts are from 11am to 2pm and from 2pm to 5 when the show closes for the day. There are two people assigned to each shift. It’s a great chance to staff with a friend, and to see the show at a slower pace.
D. Neith of Archival Framing will be the Juror of entries. Ken Waterstreet will be the judge.
