For over thirty years, the Amador County Artists Association (ACAA) has been providing support and information for artists in Amador County by promoting and encouraging the production, cultivation and appreciation of the visual arts.
To 2016 Open Studios participants and those who wish to join in 2017:
“Open Studios” is going to look somewhat different this year. We will be in a central location, the Sutter Creek Auditorium, on September 16 and 17. This change is an effort to limit costs and some administrative duties, and yet maximize the number of people who see our art and fund our scholarship raffle. This location will allow us to take advantage of foot traffic in Sutter Creek on a Wine Weekend and take advantage of those who like to one-stop shop.
We will still have a preview show in the AmadorArts Gallery for the month of September, and ask for a donation of art from each participant for the scholarship raffle.
Make sure you mark your calendars for these important dates:
September 16 and 17 Open Studios event
