Daily art exhibits will be showcased this month as part of Placerville Arts Association's (PAA) 51st Annual National Mother Lode Art Exhibition. Stop by the Placerville Shakespeare Club to view a variety of art from near and far. "This show represents the finest in 2D and 3D art. It’s PAA's opportunity to showcase not only local and California artists but artists [from] across the nation," explains PAA Show Chair Gloria Vernon. The opening reception is on August 6, where Diana Coco Russell from the Academy of Art University in San Francisco will give a presentation on the process of judging, and the works that have been accepted into the show. What's more, there will be art gatherings to share ideas and techniques—Mondays are pastels, Tuesdays feature mixed media, Wednesdays are all media, Thursdays highlight oils, Fridays include scratchboard, and Saturdays accent watercolors. Those interested are encouraged to bring their own materials, and can contact Vernon at for specific times.


WHEN: August 6-20

TIME: 11 a.m.-5 p.m. (daily)

WHERE: Placerville Shakespeare Club, 2940 Bedford Avenue
