Autumn art tour showcases talent

Talent and experience are why collectors continue to seek out jewelry artist Connie Omans and artist Gayle Rappaport–Weiland during the Autumn Art Studios Tour in Placer County.

In addition, Craig Johnson will be at Finnish Temperance Hall showing his award-winning photography, as seen on KVIE‘s Art Auction. Andrea Martin is back with her bold and masterful one-of-a-kind watercolor and oil paintings. Tara Beaton creates unique, handcrafted mixed media jewelry using local stones and beads.

New to Finn Hall this year, Linda Hoschler produces vibrant artistry in glass. Make Finn Hall a must see for a marvelous adventure in the arts and delicious treats compliments of JD’s Deli. This is a great opportunity to see demonstrations, purchase high quality art, be inspired and experience the passion these artists have to offer.

Artists at their home studios in Rocklin include professional oil painter and illustrator Connie McLennan, returning skilled mixed media artist Diana Ruhkala Bell and Lynda Pike showing fabulous paintings and fiber art.

Visit the participating artists Friday to Sunday, Nov 8 to 10 from 10 a.m.-5 p.m.

New this year is an optional passport that can be stamped at each studio visited. The $10 passport can be entered into a drawing for art bucks after visiting 10 or more studios. The art bucks can be used to purchase artwork from any of the participating artists on the tour.

Purchase passports via the online box office at, or visit for a list of passport sales locations and a list of participating artists.
