The 22nd annual Winefest will be on Saturday, November 9. This is the major fundraiser event for the arts in Amador County, important because the proceeds benefit visual and performing artists and enhance the arts environment in our schools and the community. The popular Silent Art Auction is one feature that helps to attract the approximately 500 people who attend. While spotlighting the region’s many fine artists, the art auction gives the public the chance to take home some outstanding art knowing that they are helping to financially support the local arts scene.
The non-profit AmadorArts is now inviting artists to be a part of the Art Auction by donating pieces. According to the chair of the Winefest Art Committee, Lilliana Falco, all artists who are interested should email Lilliana atLilliana.firstname.lastname@example.org before August 7th to express their intent to participate with the following information: Name, email, Phone, Artwork Medium, Size, Title, Description, and Value.
Subsequently, they can drop off their "ready to hang" artwork at AmadorArts office, 617 W. Hwy 49, Jackson, anytime between August 7 and September 3 Monday-Friday, 2:00-6:00 pm. This location is in All work should arrive in proper packaging, and three-dimensional work, like sculpture and jewelry, should come with a minimum of display aids.
The Silent Art Auction will not only give donated art plenty of attention, but Artists may have business cards to promote themselves.
When artists drop off their works they will notice the large space of the new Amador Arts Center which is scheduled to have many upcoming themed exhibits and receptions in which local artists may participate. Also, ask about the possibility of being hired to be one of the professional artists to teach at Taste of the Arts one-day institute or in the Arts in Education schools program. Additionally, AmadorArts is nominally renting part of its space for artists to give their own workshops.
