"GOLDEN HILLS" by Marilyn Jassowski

Pablo Picasso once said, “The purpose of art is to wash the dust off your soul.”

It’s spring. Take Picasso’s advice and take time to wash the dust off your soul by attending the annual Placerville Art Association’s Spring Member Art Show Monday, April 7 through Friday,  April 11 at the El Dorado County Government Center, 360 Fair Lane in Placerville.

The public is invited to enjoy this free event. Come — be refreshed and inspire your soul. Visitors can see the show daily from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. There are always a couple of artists on hand to chat with, discuss their art and answer questions.

Throughout the year, the PAA’s 170 plus members sponsor a number of art events, including two member art shows and the annual Mother Lode Art Exhibition. New this year is a three-day October event “Art in the Vines” at the Cielo Estate Winery in Shingle Springs.

For the most current information about PAA’s 2014 calendar of meetings and events, visit the PAA Website placervillearts.com.

PAA invites young or old, beginning artists as well as advanced artists and patrons of the arts to become members of this active, creative group. New members are welcome throughout the year.

The judge for this year’s spring show is Terry Pappas. PAA is extremely pleased to have this talented and versatile artist as the judge for this show.

She was born and raised in San Francisco, a fifth-generation native. She still considers San Francisco one of the most beautiful cities in the world.

She moved to Sacramento in 1978 and discovered the ever-changing scenes of the American River. She continues to explore and revisit many of Northern California’s landscapes including Yosemite, the Monterey vicinity, Lake Tahoe, the Sierra and the entire coastline.

Pappas has an extensive background in art education and experience.

Pappas believes that “The quality evident in a good painting comes from the interaction of the subject and the artist’s inner self.”

Her art works have been shown in numerous art shows and exhibitions, including a one-person show of her work, and the 2014 15th Anniversary of the Elliott Fouts Gallery, Invitational Group Show, Sacramento.

Visit her Website terrypappas.com/ for additional information.

The PAA art show will display diverse works of art from realism to abstract and experimental. Works of art created in watercolor, oil, pastel, charcoal, acrylic, pencil, photography, digital art and mixed media in categories of seascape, landscape, portrait, still life, animals, miniature and experimental will enhance the walls of the El Dorado County Government Center.

Most works of art will be available for purchase. Greeting cards will also be available.

At the close of the show, the winner of the drawing for a donated painting will be announced.

Proceeds from the drawing go towards PAA’s scholarship program which supports an annual scholarship for a local graduating senior continuing in art studies.

Even though the membership show is professionally judged, the visiting public is encouraged to cast a vote for a favorite work of art for the People’s Choice Award.

PAA members invite everyone to come, wash the dust off their soul.
