Gold Country artist Robert Sandidge will judge the upcoming Placerville Arts Association Fall Membership Show which opens Monday, Nov. 14, and closes Friday, Nov. 18.

The fall collection is showing at the El Dorado County Government Center, building B, 360 Fair Lane in Placerville, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Sandidge is a well-known artist, recipient of many awards and studied with master painters all over the United States.

He has a historical 150 year old gallery in Diamond Springs where he paints in his studio. Sandidge also enjoys painting plein air, alla prima style which results in fresh, bright landscapes and seascapes.

The PAA has 159 members who are active in El Dorado County in various art projects, shows and local galleries.

The Fall Membership Show will have diverse two-dimensional works of art from realism to abstract and experimental. Works of art in watercolor, oil, pastel, charcoal, acrylic, pencil, photography and mixed media in categories of seascape, landscape, portrait, still life, animals, miniature and experimental will enhance the walls of the atrium at the government center.

The Placerville Arts Association appreciates the use of this beautiful venue.

A watercolor print by Valerie Bye entitled “Durnstein Lovers” will be offered as a raffle prize with all donations going towards the PAA scholarship program for local high school senior art students.

Even though the membership show is professionally judged, the public is encouraged to choose a favorite piece of art for the People’s Choice Award.

Placerville Arts Association members invite everyone to enjoy the free show while paying property taxes at the El Dorado Government Center.
