This year marks Gold Country Artists Gallery’s 21st year as a thriving art gallery — a place for flourishing creativity.

The gallery, at 379 Main St. in Placerville, will be celebrating its anniversary on Saturday, July 20 during Third Saturday Art Walk from 6 to 9 p.m.

The cooperative art gallery began with a small group of artists wanting to display their fine art for sale. What has evolved over the 21 years is a robust membership of diverse artists producing exciting professional work.

To celebrate the big 21 the gallery artists are giving gifts to gallery visitors. Twenty-one pieces of art will be given away at a drawing to be held during the open house party celebration on July 20.

Another gift to art patrons will be a 10 percent discount during July.

The public is invited to celebrate along with the artists and enjoy food, drink and music by “Hickory Wind.”

While visiting the gallery meet the two featured artists this month — Isabella Jeanette Ryder and Judy Perry. Ryder creates experimental acrylic and oil paintings which are woven together to produce unusual images with strong texture and design. Perry creates award-winning pastel landscapes with glowing colors and mood.

Currently the gallery features 45 local professional artists representing paintings in watercolor, oil, acrylic, mixed media, linoleum cut prints, many styles of jewelry, wearable hand-painted clothing, photography, high fired and raku pottery, turned wood, fused glass, stained glass and beautifully hand-painted gourds.

Members produce prints of their work and greeting cards that celebrate the seasons, holidays and local landscapes.

Most of the artists have extensive résumés of awards and achievements. They are active in entering other art shows and venues such as the Studio Tour, Mother Lode Show and Banners on Main. The professionalism of the artists draws visitors and tourists from all over the world.

The gallery has a Website maintained by Bill Robinson, president, who also writes a blog about the current and upcoming gallery shows and other events happening in town. Each artist has a page on the Website with a selection of his or her work and in many cases links to the artist’s individual Website.
