Saturday, May 2nd is another 1st Saturday Amador Art Trek, time to visit galleries and businesses who are featuring new or continuing shows for this monthly event. Gallery-hop from 3 - 6 pm and you’re likely to meet artists, see and buy their new works, while enjoying refreshments and mingling with other art-lovers. Pick up a handy tri-fold brochure at one of the galleries below to guide you to other locations. You can also find one on-line at www.amadorarts.org and check back there for the monthly special 1st Saturday receptions. The free Art Trek can be experienced anytime – checking the brochure for hours of operation of each gallery.
Here is what some of the galleries are featuring in May starting on the 1st Saturday of May 2nd:
“Gifted” – Home of Local & American Made Goods – and the Painted Piano Fundraiser for the Arts
This unique retail place on Main Street in Jackson is owned and operated by Jeannette McDonald and Terry Scott, two creative women who have an eye for fun artistic things and a desire to give back to the community. Following on the success of raising $1,500 for the Interfaith Food Bank through the sales of their limited edition shopping bags, their current project is “Painting the Piano to Raise Funds for the Arts.”
They’ve asked West Point artist Charleen Tyson to paint her unique designs on an old upright piano that has been cleaned up after Jeannette conducted a long search that resulted in a local woman named “Tommie” donating one. Charleen has completed the bench and is now in residence at the shop working on the piano itself during designated days. Raffle tickets are being sold and when the winning ticket is drawn on July 4th, the proceeds will be donated to AmadorArts.
At its final T.G.I.F. concert of the season (Aug.22) AmadorArts announced the 2014 Patrons the Arts awards. The prestigious honor this year was presented to two local residents, Sue Lagomarsino and Leslie Vasquez. Each year, since 1999, AmadorArts has recognized community members who stand out for what they have done for the arts in our county, giving time and energy to promote, encourage and support the arts in Amador County.
