Escabar_MimiOne of the best places in New York City opened on this date in 1872 — the Metropolitan Museum of Art. It houses a great collection like items by Louis Comfort Tiffany, works by American and international artists and special exhibitions. The Metropolitan Museum of Art was created by a group of Americans who wanted to establish a national gallery for the American people. It has met that goal and then some.

Fortunately there are many wonderful places in El Dorado County to enjoy art.

 

Music and pizza

The art of singing is on display at the Brick Oven Pub, 2875 Ray Lawyer Drive in Placerville, on Wednesdays during February. Jonny Mojo will be singing acoustic Americana music from 6 to 9 p.m. Mojo will be performing a variety of his own original tunes, blues, rock, bluegrass, and of course, some Grateful Dead. Stop in for some Brick Oven pizzas. For more information call 530-622-7420.

 

Award-winning photos

Artistic talent captured by the camera can be appreciated this week. The El Dorado Camera Club is having its Camera Club Print Competition at its regular meeting on Thursday, Feb. 21 at 7 p.m. The meeting is held at the Cameron Park Community Center, 2502 Country Club Drive in Cameron Park. Competition guidelines and categories are available at eldordadocameraclub.com. There are multiple categories for color and black and white prints and ribbons will be awarded for first, second and third place winners, plus there are monetary prizes for theme and best of show winners. This judged completion is open to members and non-members for a small entry fee. For more details call Sherry Dorithy at 530-677-4656.

 

Open mic

The many talented voices and musicians in El Dorado County are invited to the Wine Smith, 346 Main St. in Placerville, on Thursday, Feb. 21 for open mic night hosted by the Old West Trio. This is a fun time for the entertainers and the audience. To learn more about the open mic night call 530-622-0516.

 

Blending fun

Madroña Vineyards, 2560 High Hill Road in Placerville, is having the “Other Red Wine” blending event on Saturday, Feb. 23 and Sunday, Feb. 24. This event will feature the blending of El Tinto. Winemaker Paul Bush will start the session with the base wine and will have components to work with in blending. El Tinto is a challenging wine to blend so this should be a great educational experience and fun, too. Tickets are available by calling 530-644-5948.
