All Day Crossing California, Sierra to the Sea, October 8 through November 26 at Petroglyphe
Mokelumne Hill, CA...Crossing California, Sierra to the Sea, Dale Laitinen. Reception - Sunday, October 8, 2017 from 2-5 pm. Exhibition runs October 8 through November 26, 2017 At Petroglyphe Gallery 8317 Main Street, Mokelumne Hill Crossing California, Sierra to the Sea is a celebration of Dale Laitinen's favorite places seen while crisscrossing the great state of California.  Laitinen states, "Twenty years ago my wife and I chose Mountain Ranch, uprooting home, studio, family and pets to a beautiful place tucked away in Calaveras County.  The now infamous Butte Fire swept through our area and destroyed all that we had built for those years.  Crossing California is a rising from the ashes exhibit as a way of moving forward from catastrophe."







In this exhibition, Dale Laitinen has chosen a multi medium way of depicting varied landscapes, employing water media, acrylics, and oils. He states, “Although my theme remains constant, my technical use of mediums is as diverse as California. Expect scenes of Tahoe, Yosemite and other Northern California locales…but also be prepared for some surprises.”

When Laitinen returns home to Northern California after traveling, teaching, and observing all over the country and abroad, he sighs in appreciation for all that is offered in this magnificent area. This is easily detected in the predominant subject matter of his work.

Dale Laitinen is a signature member of the National Watercolor Society and Watercolor West. He is a past juror of many national and regional exhibitions including Watercolor West, Kentucky Watercolor Society, Utah Watercolor Society, Watercolor Society of Oregon, Red River Watermedia Show, Magnum Opus and numerous others. Some of the periodicals featuring him have been Southwest Art Magazine, The Artist’s Magazine, Watercolor Magic, Watercolor Magazine, and Drawingboard Magazine.

Marisa Chaffey and Denise Ebbett, owners of Petroglyphe Gallery share, “It has been an honor to represent Dale Laitinen and his fine art since our opening in 2011.This exhibit is an opportunity for Mr. Laitinen to share his newest collection since the Butte Fire. We look forward to unveiling these stunning works, which showcase his talent for both Sierra landscapes and Coastal landscapes.”

Reception and Demonstration at Petroglyphe Gallery, Sunday, October 8, 2017, from 2-5pm. Watch artist Dale Laitinen at work and visit with him to learn more about his process and the inspiration behind his new collection.

Wine and cheese will be served. There will be a free drawing for a $50 Gift Certificate to the gallery.
07:00 PM Murphys Creek Theatre Play Festival
Murphys, CA...Presentation of new works all weekend at MCT. A writer learns best by handing over their work to a group of actors & watching them bring it to life on a stage before an audience. Murphys Creek Theatre is excited to present a three-day event of readings & development labs for emerging & seasoned playwrights.


Friday, November 3rd at 7PM
Canary Cottage staging by local: Jake Edmondson Saturday, November 4th at 7PM Selections from Canterbury by valley native: Linda Scheller Sunday, November 5th at 2PM Selections from The Global Blimp by traveling writer Jack Shamoken and Detour by valley artist: Nick Zagone
$5 per night or $10 for a full weekend pass!


Come and support the theatre and artists of all types in this unique opportunity to be the first to see and hear these new stories given life!
Jake Edmondson is a playwright, videographer, and actor.

You may remember him from the cast of The Elephant Manback in February.
Canary Cottage is his second play about an old downtown Victorian that is currently, a rundown, board-and-care facility for the elderly. When an 88-year old Miss April goes missing but is later found at the bus station, everybody breathes a sigh of relief… except Miss April.

Linda Scheller is the author of Fierce Light (FutureCyclePress) in which the voices of 36 great women from world history and culture are imagined through poetry. Her writing has been widely published in journals and anthologies. Now retired from teaching, Ms. Scheller leads writing workshops, volunteers with a Modesto community radio station, and often plays as an actor.

In the year 1823 in Canterbury Village, Nathaniel and his new wife Dorothy give his daughter Sarah to the Shaker community to care for her and teach her the Shaker faith and way of life. When a young man joins their community, convictions are tested.

An Oregon Book Award Nominee, Nick Zagone grew up in Portland, OR. Recently his short film “The Gas Station” was on the 2017 short list for best short film at the Cannes Film Festival. And his adaptation of “Treasure Island” was commissioned and produced at Merced College in California. He is resident playwright at Prospect Theatre Project in Modesto.

In Detour: Roberts is living the life of a dead man. Literally. It’s 1945 and in a moment of bad luck on a road trip through Arizona, Roberts finds himself a new life as a new man. Detour is now a “theatre noir” where the dreams are big, but the realities are darker.

Jack Shamoken , a California native living in Chicago, started writing sketch comedy in his teens which parlayed into a life-long devotion to theatre. Screenwriting for independent film has taken him to Vienna and Los Angeles. As an author, under a pseudonym, he’s written books of fiction & poetry The Global Blimp is a play set in the writer’s room of a weekly grocery store aisle tabloid who has covered twenty-five years worth of stories about UFOs, to Big Foot, ghost-of-Elvis sightings to the Loch Ness Monster. But the paper has just lost its celebrity columnist & all its advertisers.

This MCT weekend event welcomes artists seasoned and new for audiences to experience readings & development labs from emerging & seasoned playwrights. November 3-5 : Friday and Saturday at 7PM, Sunday at 2PM. Tickets: $5. All Weekend Pass: $10
