Inaugural “AnimalScapes” Exhibit to Open January 16 at Ironstone, Murphys

Murphys, CA...What happens when you ask some of the best artists in three counties to create work around a common theme? You get a major art exhibition that’s entirely provocative, different and new. Called “AnimalScapes of the Sierra Nevada Foothills,” the prodigious show brings together artists from 3 counties with over 50 original works of art, including paintings, photography, ceramics and poetry, to celebrate the animals that live in the Gold Country. “AnimalScapes” debuts January 16th at Ironstone Winery in Murphys, where it can be viewed daily through February 15th. Awards and prizes in several categories will be revealed at the Artist Reception, on January 16th, 3-5pm. “Alive”, a live wildlife exhibit is planned, plus live music, and the public is invited to attend this free event.

Opening receptions in Amador County and Tuolumne County, each with live entertainment, will occur before the start of their month-long “AnimalScapes” exhibit. Save the 3-5 pm times, and the dates of February 20 for the reception at the Hotel Sutter in Sutter Creek, and March 19 at the Black Oak Casino Hotel in Sonora. To keep the project living even longer, the art will also be featured in a keepsake AnimalScapes Wall Calendar for 2017.

This past September approx. 120 artists, including poets, from Amador, Calaveras and Tuolumne Counties applied by submitting samples of prior work for judging to be invited as the 50 Finalists. These artists have been at work for three months creating their pieces for the “AnimalScapes” traveling exhibit. A list of the Final Artists can be viewed at www.calaverasarts.org.

AnimalScapes is a landmark art endeavor created by the Calaveras County Arts Council from a “Creative California Communities” grant funded by the California Arts Council and various sponsors. Project partners are AmadorArts, the Tuolumne County Arts Alliance, PAWS, aka the Performing Animals Welfare Society, and the California Department of Fish and Wildlife. Besides providing a showcase opportunity for regional artists, the project’s aim is to raise awareness of the many groups who advocate for, protect, and nurture the diverse animal communities of the Sierra Foothills.

The project partners are grateful to numerous others who also contributed cash and services, as well as to volunteers who continue to contribute time and skills. It’s not too late to donate. Please go to www.calaverasarts.org, or contact Project Coordinator Sandra Peterson at animalscapes@gmail.com
