“Affordable Gifts” by 14 Artists Featured in AmadorArts Gallery

Starting November 1st and continuing to the end of the month, you will have a chance to find that perfect artsy gift for your favorite friends and relatives, perhaps even for yourself. The show and sale at the AmadorArts Gallery in Sutter Creek is titled “Affordable Gifts,” and for good reason. You can shop locally for items created by artists who have gone out of their way to present examples of their work at prices to fit your holiday gift-giving budget. All artists but one are from Amador County so you can proudly write on the card, “made in Amador County, USA.”

Here are November’s featured artists and their work: Laureen Shimmon, hand painted silk scarves; Janet Piccola, pottery; Karen Crane, jewelry; Penny West, fuzzy head wreaths; Dianne Epperson, mosaic vases; Lora Lee Rose, feather art; Bruce Peccianti, notecards, collage and doodle art; Sharon Galligan, Julie Trail, Lynn Slade, watercolor paintings; Howard Rees, oil paintings; Curtis Stromme, abstract acrylics; and Leslie and David Schupp, photography.

Since Saturday, November 1st is the monthly free Art Trek event in nine galleries, make an afternoon of gallery-hopping from 1:00 – 6:00 pm.  At AmadorArts, from 3-6 pm a reception will take place for guests to meet many of these artists while enjoying refreshments.  Members of AmadorArts receive a 10% discount on their purchases.  AmadorArts Gallery is located one block off Main Street in Sutter Creek at 11-A Randolph St. next to the historic Monteverde General Store Museum.

The gallery, operated by the non-profit organization AmadorArts, is open weekends 1:00 to 4:00 pm and weekdays 9:00 am – 2:00 pm, except Wednesdays.  Exhibits change each month curated and staffed by volunteers. In December the theme will be "Holiday Adornments" featuring ornaments and jewelry made by local artists. Visit  for more information.
