“It’s spring fever. That is what the name of it is. And when you’ve got it, you want — oh, you don’t quite know what it is you do want, but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so! ” — Mark Twain

The Placerville Arts Association has a cure for spring fever and that is the Spring 2011 membership show.
