“Sierra Inspirations”

7th annual Invitational Art Show,

AODC Gallery Call to Artists

 

AODC Gallery in historic Georgetown invites artists of all mediums to submit artwork for this upcoming juried show to be displayed August 28 - September 27, 2020.

The theme this year brings attention to our beautiful Sierra area.  It won’t be hard to find a subject that brings inspiration.  It’s time to start creating so that you can meet the early bird deadline for entries, July 24th. Inquires may be directed to aodcgallery@gmail.com.  Download an entry form below.  

A committee of artists from the gallery will jury in the pieces.  As before, there will be an artist’s reception on September 13th.  The public and all artists are invited to attend and vote for their favorite piece.  A “People’s Choice” award will be recognized by a ribbon at the end of the show. 

 

AODC Gallery is located at 6295 Main Street, Georgetown and the phone number is 530 333-2787.  Gallery hours are Friday through Sunday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Its 2020 - Happy New Year from AODC Gallery, your local source for gifts and fine art.

We are excited to start our 10th year on the Divide with a continued celebration of the Arts

AODC gallery currently has twelve local artists.  Artists have joined, left for various reasons, and new ones have replaced the vacancies.  The gallery is open to artists that provide something new and different.  If you or someone you know is looking to join the gallery , the application and information regarding membership is on the website, www.artonthedivide.com.

AODC artists continue to "refresh" the gallery monthly with new art.  Providing the community with workshops to teach various art techniques and receptions to showcase the art are typical of our monthly offerings.   We welcome feedback from the community to help us plan workshops.  What would you like to learn?  Past workshops have included jewelry, stained glass, mask making, collage and rose-pruning.

Directly behind the gallery is a historic rose garden that is maintained by the artists.  We have been fortunate to have the Divide Garden Club help with rose-pruning, and hope to continue with that collaboration.  They have also been generous in awarding the gallery many years of grants to help with this maintenance.

AODC gallery is pleased to provide a space for local student art, under the leadership of Susan Sasano, a local volunteer.  She reaches out to our local schools and will switch out the artwork regularly.

Congratulations 2020 ART Scholarship Awardees,...

Divide Friends of the Arts and Historical Society (DFAHS) and Art On the Divide Gallery (AODC) are pleased to announce the awarding of our 2020 Arts Scholarships to Raelynn Davis and Alysa Miller.

Seven very talented artists applied for the scholarships this year and it was difficult to make the choices.  The committee finally decided to award the two $500.00 Scholarships to the students who will be majoring in Studio Arts.

Raelynn Davis is attending Humbolt State University and majoring in Studio Arts.  Raelyyn says that "she has a strong passion for art, acting and film making, and I sincerely hope to further develop these passions in college. I am currently undecided on what I want my career path to be, but I plan to profit off of my creative and expressionistic abilities."

Alysa Miller is starting her journey by attending Sierra College, and is not sure where her art will take her, as she is interested also in mental health and may use her art as a healing modality, or perhaps as an art teacher.

Please join us in congratulating these amazing young women as they accept their well-earned scholarships and proceed on their educational paths.
