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.
08:00 AM Klassen Klassic Turkey Trot Celebrates Eleven Years of Fun, Friends, Family and Fitness
Murphys, CA – More than 1,000 people will spend Thanksgiving morning getting some exercise and giving back to their community at the 11th Annual Klassen Klassic Turkey Trot. The event is held at Murphys Park, behind Main Street in downtown Murphys, CA. Brian Klassen and his daughters, Sally and Riley, put on this unofficial, family-oriented walk/run, along with a handful of volunteers.

This year’s recipients are the Murphys Food Bank and the Zach Peterson Memorial Fund. Zach was a 16 year-old Bret Harte High student who died unexpectedly of a blood clot in September (photo below). His mother, Jolee Peterson, commented, “I am very honored that you have chosen Zach’s Memorial Fund this year. "

MURPHYS — Nine years ago, Brian Klassen and about a dozen friends and family members decided to go for a morning run before their Thanksgiving feast.

That run, now known as the Klassen Klassic Annual Turkey Trot, has since evolved into a race that attracts hundreds of participants and has raised thousands of dollars for people in need.

Brian Klassen, who along with his daughters created the annual event, said the family run was taken to the next level by his daughter, Sally Klassen, who in 2007 decided to focus her senior project on organizing a run.

The race drew 200 runners that year, he said. But every year since, the Turkey Trot has grown, last year 800 people particpated.

Sally, who is now 23, also started asking for canned food or non-perishable food items, which are donated to the food pantry at the Murphys Senior Center, in lieu of an entry fee. And Klassen said that remains the participation cost.

Last year, the Klassen Klassic Annual Turkey Trot collected enough food to last 10 weeks, Klassen said.

The event has also collected thousands of dollars that have been donated to local families; each year they identify a family in need and donate the proceeds from a commemorative T-shirt sale. Klassen and his daughters continue to organize and plan the event because of their desire to give back to the community, in which the family has lived in for 20 years, Klassen said. It reinforces the sense of community in Murphys.

“It’s fantastic,” he said. “It’s very rewarding and fulfilling. It makes me happy to do this.”
