OAKHURST – The opening Gala Reception for Sierra Art Trails is happening today, Saturday, Sept. 12 from 4 – 9 p.m. The event recognizes artists along with the Preview Exhibit at Stellar Gallery in Oakhurst. The exhibit runs through Sunday, Oct. 4.
Now in its 13th year, Sierra Art Trails (SAT) is set for Friday, Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 2, 3 and 4, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. With more than 100 artists participating from myriad locations, SAT offers a glimpse at the best the foothills have to offer.
This much-anticipated, self-guided tour draws a crowd to the mountain area each year, to see local artists and art featured in homes, studios and galleries in eastern Madera and Mariposa counties. For $18, visitors receive a special catalog, which is their “Ticket for Two” for the event. It includes a list of participating artists, photographs of their work, and maps to direct visitors to the locations they choose, at a pace they pick.
Visitors will be treated to demonstrations, and works of art will be for sale. Catalogs are available at online and on Gallery Row in Oakhurst, as well as other participating locations you can find by clicking the links.
