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.
It takes so many hands to put on a show like the Mother Lode Show. Many hours of volunteer help have gotten us this far, and a special "thank you" to all our volunteers. But we still need more help. Specifically, we can use help setting up the show and sitting the show during the days it is open.
Show set-up will be this Friday, August 1, at the Shakespeare Club in Placerville. We'll begin at 8:30am and should be done in the early afternoon. If you can help, please give Lucia Rothgeb a call at (530) 676-3959.
During the days that the show is open, we have two "sitting" shifts, from 11am to 2pm and from 2pm to 5pm each day, and we like to have two "sitters" per shift. You don't have to be showing your art to sit the show. The sign-up sheet has gone around the last few meeting, but there are still open spaces. The sign-up sheet will be at intake, or you can call Lucia to sign up for a spot.
UNFORTUNATELY, DUE TO CIELO WINERY BEING SOLD, THE ART IN THE VINES
