The Placerville Arts Association is El Dorado County’s oldest non-profit art group in continuous operation since it was formed in the early 1960’s. The current membership of approximately 190 includes both artists and patrons of the arts.
The purpose of Placerville Arts Association is to promote visual arts in the local community through art shows, exhibitions, art demonstrations, workshops, scholarships and art oriented field trips.
Placerville Arts Association provides community outreach programs by offering yearly scholarships to graduating high school seniors pursuing art related careers; awarding monetary grants to elementary school art programs; and donating a scholarship grant to the Sugarloaf Student Art Camp.
Our next general meeting will be September 20th at 1:30pm at the Senior Center in Placerville. Ceramics artist Lisa Bone will be presenting the program this month. We are lucky to have this talented artist join us. Her work is in several area galleries, including Gold Country Artists. To find out more about her and her work, visit her website.
