EVENTS

 

The May Theme for AODC is "Flower Power" - Come an view featured art by our resident artists.

May 22nd "En Plein Air" Event.

In May, the members of Art On the Divide Cooperative Gallery invite all interested Divide residents and visitors to our community to explore painting “en plein air” at the gallery garden and around the nearby Georgetown neighborhood.  En Plein Air is from the French language, culture and history and is defined as “...the act of painting outdoors.”  In recent times and now all over the world, we see it re-imagined as the ‘sketch crawl’ or ‘urban sketching’ or even ‘nature journaling’.
 
Participants and viewers for this new, local event will meet on Sunday, May 22nd at 11 a.m. in the garden in back of AODC with their portable sketching or painting tools and materials and either set up there or meander through the local streets and alleyways to find other locales with one or more subjects of interest.  All are invited to re-assemble several hours later back in the garden to view and share the art that has been created during the day.
 
Art On the Divide Cooperative Gallery is located at 6295 Main Street, in one of Georgetown’s historic buildings  and the phone number is 530 333-2787.  Gallery hours are Friday through Sunday, 10 am to 6 pm

Thank you to Stanley Marciel, owner of Garden Valley Roses for his expertise in Rose Pruning.
A lively and helpful group of rose enthusiasts learned the proper techniques of rose pruning and then proceeded to prune all of the roses in the Gallery Garden...almost 100 of them.  Thank you so much for your help.  Be sure to check back in May to see the roses in full bloom.  And don't forget to visit Garden Valley Roses where they have more than 10,000 roses for you to choose from.

Its 2022 - AODC Celebrates more than a decade on the Divide, your local source for gifts and fine art... We are excited to be in our 12th 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 available here...

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.
