El Dorado County shines at State Fair

EDC at State Fair

For the last 158 years, Californians have proudly celebrated the talent and bounty of this great land at the California State Fair and Exposition.

Whether in good times or tough ones, somehow the good folks of the Golden State manage to “step up to the plate” and show why there is always hope for the future.

Every year, I enjoy seeing what the younger generation is doing at the fair. There are 4-H exhibits galore, industrial and mechanical displays and my personal favorite, the Youth Art and Design Expo.

This year, a number of El Dorado County young people submitted art work for this juried art show at the State Fair. And they did well.

Sophia Hill of Shingle Springs won a first place for her watercolor, “Heron At Rest.” She also received an honorable mention for her watercolor, “Pretty in Pink.”
Tarah Kubes and Amanda Luong, both of El Dorado Hills, also received awards from the fair.

Tarah won a first place ribbon in the pen, pencil and printmaking competition for her work entitled, “My Support.” She received an honorable mention for her pastel and charcoal entry, “The Lion’s Den.”

Amanda received honorable mentions for her entries “James Dean’s Porsche” (pen, pencil and printmaking) and “Mountain Lake Landscape” (pastel and charcoal).
Sarah Shipler of El Dorado Hills won a red ribbon for her pen, pencil and charcoal entry, “Time Cat.” Sarah also won honorable mentions for two additional entries, “Christmas Tiger” and “Preditory Rapture.”

Placerville residents Grace Klas and Cami Young both showed that they can stitch it all together with their entries.

Grace won two second place ribbons for her sewing skills with a “Pleated Top” (single item clothing) and “Allison’s Quilt” (quilts). She won an honorable mention for her work, “Sun Pillow” (any other sewing project).

Cami won a second place ribbon for her untitled quilt in the quilts category.

El Dorado County has an entry in the County Exhibits Building. Featuring the Rubicon Trail, this exhibit features a rugged Jeep and lots of literature about the county and the adventures one can have here.

There, is a lot of information about our county packed into this little exhibit. And someone was sharp enough to get a Jeep sponsorship to help with the funding of the space.

The California State runs through July 29 at Cal Expo, located at 1600 Exposition Boulevard in Sacramento. Fair hours are 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Friday through Sunday. Visit bigfun.org for admission and midway information.
