Sierra Art Trails 2018 Catalog #61
I am so nervous and excited to be participating in my first Sierra Art Trails Oct. 5, 6, and 7, and hope you will come experience it with me!
I call my art business Sweet Home North Fork and have been busy all summer painting some of the local scenery I love so much. I look forward to showing you what I’ve been up to!
It’s an amazing three-day event, one of the largest of its kind in the U.S., where 99 mountain artists open their studios or set up a space in or outside of local businesses and invite you to enjoy their art and art process. Orange signs with artist numbers and arrows will be posted all over the mountains — from Midpines to Mariposa to Bass Lake to YLP.
Artists will be selling original works and also greeting cards, magnets, mugs, and other affordable items, so that there is something for every budget.
If you want the full Art Trails experience, consider purchasing a catalog ($20 admits 2) with samples of art from each artist and maps to help you find your way to all 99 artists. Catalogs are available to order online at sierraarttrails.org and at many local art stores and galleries. A portion of catalog sales will be donated to local fire fighting organizations in appreciation of all they have done for us.
Check out sierraarttrails.org or visit the Stellar Gallery in Oakhurst to see samples of art from each of the 99 artists – everything from jewelry to blown glass to paintings, etchings, leather work, pottery, and more.
Thank you for helping to make this 16th Annual Sierra Art Trails a great success and for visiting my booth if you are able to.
Sierra Art Trails Open Studio Tour is Friday, Saturday and Sunday, October 5, 6 and 7, 2015.
