Call to Artists: Art & Wine Show Set for May 31

Pottery, paintings, photos, sculptures, textiles – all artists welcome!

The deadline has been extended to Friday, May 17, for artists of all stripes to get involved with an upcoming Art Show and Wine Tasting event in Grass Valley. Printers, metal workers, basket weavers, wood turners and other artists are invited to offer their small-to-medium-sized creations for a silent auction. They will be offered for sale at an Art Show and Wine Tasting set for 5 to 7 p.m. Friday, May 31, at Peace Lutheran Church, 828 W. Main St., near downtown Grass Valley.

Artists will set the minimum price for their works and receive that amount for all pieces sold. Any amount paid above the minimum price will benefit the Peace Organ Fund. Peace Lutheran Church is raising money to replace its aging organ with a combination instrument that will be capable of playing real pipes, which create a uniquely stirring sound.

To submit a piece of art, contact Connie Berg at decoberg@aol.com or (530) 432-1607. Include a photo of the item.

Smaller works will be displayed on tables. Paintings and photographs should come with a tabletop easel for setting up. Medium-sized works can be accommodated with a standing easel. No wall space is available, so larger pieces cannot be accepted.

This event offers a spacious, beautiful and centrally located venue for artists to make their works known and available to the public. Artists are encouraged to mingle with guests to discuss their art. Artists may attend the event at a discounted cost of $10 per person. (Cost for general admission will be $20 per person.)
