“Saturday Demo Days” continue at the Art On the Divide Co-op Gallery on both Saturday, Dec. 8 and Dec. 15.
Gallery members hope visitors will take the opportunity to visit the gallery and see these artists demonstrating their creative process.
The schedule for Dec. 8 is as follows:
11 a.m. — Susan Polstra, well-known watercolor artist here on the Divide, will share her painting techniques for a full composition watercolor painting, starting from preliminary drawings.
1 p.m. — Jodi Reed, talented gourd artist, will show the process of working on gourds from cleaning them to the finished product. She will demonstrate painting, carving, and her favorite technique, pyrography (wood burning).
3 p.m. — Victoria Perez Mott, one of our newest artists, will demonstrate lampwork glass bead making using a live torch with Italian and German glass. She will create some of the intricate designed beads that she uses in her jewelry.
Gallery members invite the public to come see the artists working, and do some Christmas shopping at the same time. There are many new items made especially for the holidays.
The winter hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. The gallery will be open the entire week before Christmas (Dec.16 to Dec.23), for your shopping convenience.
Art On the Divide Gallery is located in one of Georgetown’s historical buildings at 6295 Main St., halfway between the fire station and the American River Inn.
