The Banners on Parade public art project is on display thanks to a coalition of supporters including: the Placerville Downtown Association, artists, businesses, organizations, individuals and the city of Placerville — all working to promote the arts in downtown Placerville.

The self-supporting, community art project features brilliantly painted banners installed on the light poles on Main Street.

Placerville Art on Parade is the overall name for the community art project started in 2005 to showcase local artists’ talents and to brighten downtown Placerville.

The first two years offered 3D art projects — decorated Wheelbarrows on Parade and then Wine Barrels on Parade. After that the participants and sponsors opted for the large banners painted.

Artists are invited to submit an application and the selected artists spend about six weeks painting the banners for judging.

The winners — first, second, third and three honorable mentions — are chosen in late May at the Folsom Lake College, El Dorado Center and then the banners are hung along Main Street.

The banner “Silver and Gold” by Galen Ramos earned first place.

“The Secret Forest” by Laura Freeman was chosen in second place and “Vintage” by Sherrie Toti-Johnson was third.

Honorable mentions went to Kathleen Krikorian for “Dogwoods and Wine,” Chris Larson for “Crystal Ball” and Allison Wanninger for “California’s Wildflowers: A Glow.”

The banners are photographed and placed in a brochure so that visitors to Main Street can identify the artists. People are invited to stroll Main Street and view the banners.

The 32 banners will be seen until October and then will be sold at a silent auction at the Oct. 12 at the Art and Wine Festival.

The proceeds from the silent auction help fund the art exhibit for the next year. Local sponsors also help to fund the public art project.
