AmadorArts needs YOU --- to VOLUNTEER
For more than 30 years AmadorArts has been supporting, promoting and encouraging the Arts in our schools and community. As a non-profit organization, we depend on volunteers to make the most of our many events and programs. Please become an AmadorArts volunteer and help us build the cultural vitality of our community!
AmadorArts, the Amador County Arts Council, is a non-profit arts organization dedicated to encouraging, supporting, and promoting the arts in our schools and community. In order to nurture the cultural vitality of Amador County, we offer arts education programs, free concerts, community events, gallery exhibits and arts mixers throughout the year, in addition to providing resources and opportunities to local artists.
AmadorArts would like to thank the Community Foundation of Amador County & the Diamond-Price fund for their recent grant contribution of $2500 to our organization! Bill Price and Candace Diamond recommended AmadorArts to the Community Foundation for a grant to help nurture the cultural vitality of our region & with this generous contribution, that is exactly what we will continue to do.
Anje Olmstead is May’s Artist of the Month at AmadorArts Gallery
AmadorArts will be featuring the amazing work of Anje Olmstead in its gallery in Sutter Creek for the Month of May. A Reception in her honor will be held during the 1st Saturday Art Trek on May 4, from 4-6 pm.
Anje Olmstead has been an exhibiting artist for 35 years, the last five in Sacramento at the 20/20 Gallery. Her mediums have ranged from watercolor pointillism to mosaic collage to the current needlepoint “tapestry” art. Her work can be seen in commercial business centers, restaurants and in private collections. Even the “Encyclopedia of Living Artists in America” contains examples of her creations. She’s a unique artist with an eye for creating in and with very small pieces, like painting dots, cutting and adhering minute textured paper shapes, or darning many vibrant colors of yarn in tiny needlepoint holes. The resulting “big picture” is fascinating. Some times she’ll make a design in one medium and then replicate it exactly in another. Seeing the two next to each other makes for wondrous appreciation.
AmadorArts was invited to join the California Alliance for Arts Education, along with 25 other arts councils, the only one in the 6-county area, to develop a coalition of diverse local stakeholders to advocate to keep the arts in our schools.

Meet AmadorArts New Executive Director
It was with great intrepitude that the selection panel of AmadorArts approached the job of selecting the new part-time Executive Director. There were nearly 50 applicants, all with solid experience. After many resume readings and more than a dozen interviews, there was one who survived the scrutiny. Terra Easton Forgette (pronounced For-JET) will begin as part-time Executive Director on November 1. Terra’s youthful, but poised enthusiasm, combined with her community non-profit experience and theatre background in the arts, make her qualified to be the first paid AmadorArts administrator in 10 years.
New Office for AmadorArts
AmadorArts has moved into a new office. It’s located in Sutter Creek in the Monteverde General Store Museum Annex at 11-A Randolph Street. If this sounds familiar, it’s where we once shared an office. Fortunately, the walls still have the murals of the history of Sutter Creek painted by Rand Huggett. The new mailing address for AmadorArts is...
