Artists Helping Artists
Mother Lode Art Association is conducting a special silent auction starting November 11 at the Aloft Gallery, 167 S. Washington St., Sonora to help fellow artists who lost their art supplies in the Butte fire. The auction will raise funds to purchase gift certificates to Town Hall Arts for these artists. If you are one of the artists who lost their art supplies in the recent fire, applications for these gift certificates may be picked up at Town Hall Arts, Calaveras Arts Council in San Andreas, and the Aloft Gallery in Sonora. 

Questions regarding the Artists Helping Artists Program may be directed to MLAA President Linda Happel at 209-532-7240 or

Artists Helping Artists at Town Hall Arts
Several artists have donated items for artists who lost their art supplies in the fire.  Ask Larry at the desk if you are interested in a free mat cutter or standing easel.

   The Calaveras County Arts Council is excited to lead AnimalScapes of the Sierra Nevada Foothills, a State grant project, in partnership with AmadorArts Council, Tuolumne Arts Alliance, The Performing Animal Welfare Society (PAWS), and the California Department of Fish & Wildlife (CDFW).  We want to thank these organizations, and help raise awareness of the many groups who advocate for our animal communities.

   The event will show the work of artists, photographers, and poets who will depict animals, domestic/wild/stock, in a Sierra Foothills setting. There will be three month-long shows, January through March, one in each county.  A 2017 Wall Art Calendar with select images from the exhibit, and acknowledgement of our valued sponsors will be produced at conclusion of the project.
