Auburn art tour

REIF ERICKSON is one of the artists participating in the 19th annual Autumn Arts Studio Tour in Placer County.

Fifty-five Placer County artists are creating new work and readying their studios for PlacerArts’ 19th annual Autumn Art Studios Tour, set for Friday, Saturday and Sunday, Nov. 9, 10 and 11 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Many artists will open their private studios for the weekend, while others will participate in group shows at The Arts Building, the Old Library Art Studios and Finnish Temperance Hall.

Placer County is a natural habitat for artists, who translate the foothill vistas, wildlife, historic buildings and gardens into a stunning variety of interpretations including paintings, pastels, photography, prints, functional pottery, jewelry, glass, sculpture, wearable art and mixed media.

Artists relish this opportunity to explain and demonstrate their work as much as visitors appreciate the opportunity to discover new artists each year.

Six talented Rocklin artists are participating in the tour at Finnish Temperance Hall.

Well-respected local artist, teacher, consultant, juror and on-air personality Gayle Rappaport – Weiland will be sharing her newest coffee table art book, step by step instructional DVD, paintings and gift items.
Craig Johnson is a multiple award-winning photographer and has been seen on KVIE‘s Art Auction. He will have a range of work from greeting cards to framed original pieces.
Andrea Martin will be participating with her cheerful and masterful one-of-a-kind watercolor and oil paintings.
Award-winning artist and children’s book illustrator, Connie McLennan, will display her beautiful refined fine art in oil and watercolors.
Experience and talent make Connie Oman’s jewelry elegant  heirlooms. Orman has clearly handed down her innate talent to her granddaughter Tara Beaton who is new to the tour this year. Beaton creates unique handcrafted jewelry using local stones.
 Many impressive credits follow this group of artists. They are a team and love working together.This is a great local opportunity to see demonstrations, purchase high quality art and have an art filled experience. There will also be treats compliments of Venita Rhea’s.
Reif Erickson is on the autumn studio tour again at his new home studio at 1436 Lowe Lane in Auburn.
The Autumn Art Studios Tour is presented by the Arts Council of Placer County. Visit the preview show at The Arts Building Gallery at 808 Lincoln Way in Auburn.
The fall issue of PlacerArts’ Perspectives arts quarterly is the official tour guide to the Autumn Art Studios Tour. It contains a map with locations and directions and indicates which artists will be demonstrating their art.
Tickets for the three-day Autumn Art Studios Tour are $10 for adults, with students kindergarten to 12th grade free.
