Art In Amador: The Show
For twelve years, the Amador County Artists Association (ACAA) has sponsored a free fall exhibition featuring local artists showing, demonstrating, and selling their work. Initially, artists’ studios around the county were toured under the name Open Studios. In the last few years, the ACAA found more local and regional visitors can be accommodated by holding the show in one location. On September 14 and 15, the Sutter Creek Auditorium will host the two-day event which has been renamed Art in Amador.

More than twenty artists will be displaying a variety of works including paintings, photographs, ceramics, and jewelry. Visitors can choose among paintings created with watercolors, acrylics, encaustics, alcohol ink and pastels. Hours on Saturday run from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.; Sunday hours are from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Entry into the Auditorium is free as the intent is to showcase the wealth of talent Amador County has to offer...[read more]

The Raffle
A variety of media, styles, and subject matter will be on display in the fine art raffle. Paintings, jewelry, ceramics, collages, photographs, encaustics and more. There will be art depicting dogs and cats and elephants and other critters as well. Desert scenes, mountains and waterfalls are featured among the many landscapes. Florals will be on display as well as various types of jewelry. This is a chance to win a piece of art by your favorite artist. 

Each of the Art in Amador participants, as well as other area artists, has donated an original piece for the raffle. This raffle is the Association’s only fundraiser and all proceeds fund scholarships for local students and the spring high school student art show.  Tickets are only $1 each and you get to choose which items to take a chance on.  The drawing will take place at 3:00 p.m. on September 15 and you need not be present to win. We’ll call you.
