Special Award

Placerville Arts Association, as part of their outreach initiative, is making special awards to artists entered in Photography along with the Fine Arts Adult and Youth divisions.  

We will ask each division’s Judge to determine the piece that most represents the “Spirit of the Sierra” and the winner will receive a ribbon along with a $25 check from Placerville Arts Association.


Volunteers needed: This year, Lynell Phillips, President of Placerville Arts Association will be the Supervisor of Fine Arts Adult Division.  She is asking Placerville Arts Association members to help her set up and sit at the Fine Arts building during the fair.  Our team will do the take in, hang the artwork, assist the judge, sit the show and then take it all down.  If you would like to help during the County Fair event, please reach out to Lynell Phillips, 415-793-2134 and to sign up for volunteer assignments.  Volunteers received a fair pass.
