First Saturday by Amador Art Trek

First Saturday by Amador Art Trek

1st Saturday Art Trek in 9 Local Galleries

 

First Saturday Amador Art Trek for September 6 will spotlight featured artists whose works will be the focus at receptions in most galleries. Remember, you can take the Art Trek anytime. A map of Art Trek galleries can be viewed at www.amadorarts.org.  

 

Notable for your free gallery-hopping fun on September 6th are artists NEW in the galleries this month, while other galleries will be extending their shows.  

The monthly 1st Saturday Art Treks are scheduled from 1:00 – 6:00 pm. Usually the receptions are from 3-6 pm; some are earlier. Going on the Trek is FREE, a time to have fun seeing what ten galleries are currently exhibiting. There might be an artist's reception, cookies and punch, wine and cheese, music, and friendship.

 

These are the participating 1st Saturday Art Trek galleries, with descriptions of what some of them are featuring for the month of September:

 

AmadorArts Gallery - Kathryn Devlin and Cathleen Berglund . The ceramics of Kathryn Devlin have been described as whimsical, fanciful, detailed, fun, imaginative, childlike, creative. This exhibit is her first formal show, made especially exciting to be showing with her dear, long-time friend, Cathleen Berglund. Quirky realism, sophisticated primitivism, hard edge sentimentalism: all of these phrases have been used to describe Cathleen Berglund’s style of painting. She likes to capture unique and colorful images, and she favors telling an implied story with her art.

Inline image 7

Both artists will be hosted at a reception on Saturday, September 6 , from 3 to 6 p.m. coinciding with the First Saturday Art Trek. Operated by the non-profit AmadorArts, the gallery is at 11-A Randolph St., Sutter Creek, and is open weekends 1:00 to 4:00 pm and weekdays, 9:00 am – 2:00 pm, except Wednesdays. Turn off Main St. one block by the Back Roads Café, adjacent to the historic Monteverde Store Museum. www.amadorarts.org

PRCA Rodeo

PRCA Rodeo

"The Start of a Tradition" is the theme for the Jackson Lions Club's Inaugural PRCA Rodeo to be held Sept. 13 and 14 at the Amador County Fairgrounds in Plymouth.

Plymouth's unique foothill setting provides a genuine cowboy atmosphere that sets it apart from bigger city events. Residents throughout the region welcome visitors to their small, close-knit community where bonds are formed by the hard work of ranchers, cattlemen, horse trainers and others who earn their living as the sun rises and sets. The deep appreciation for stock animal welfare is felt by all who wander past the hay bales. Amador County was the perfect location to bring opportunities to America's top-notch professional rodeo athletes and their fans.

Camille Sobon reigns as the first Jackson Lions Rodeo Queen. A horse woman since the age of six, Sobon currently works full time for her family winery while spending the off hours competing in cattle sorting, jumping, and team penning, as well as trail riding and training horses.  "Rodeo is special because it shows the western lifestyle, which I think is really important," Sobon said. "It's all about being rural, good to your neighbor, good to your family, and honest."

In addition to the rodeo, the Fairgrounds will feature a Home and Garden Show both days, and a Classic Car Show on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission to these events is free.  Widely acclaimed country rock group The Chris Gardner Band plays Saturday at 7 p.m. Admission is $5 general/free with rodeo ticket.

All PRCA Rodeo events will be held in the Fairground's Benny Brown Arena. Saturday's schedule is 4 to 7 p.m. Sunday's is 1 to 4 p.m.  Gates open at 10 a.m. for the Home Show on both days, and a Classic Car Show on Saturday.

Tickets are $20 adults, $10 youth 7 to 12, $5 under 7, and can be purchased online at JacksonLionsClub.org/Rodeo or in person at the Feed Barn in Martell, and The Biggest Little Kitchen Store in Jackson.

For more information, visit JacksonLionsClub.org/Rodeo, email jacksonlionsrodeo2014@gmail.com or call (209) 418-9071. Find them on social media at #AmadorPRCA.

The Jackson Lions Club would like to thank the sponsors of the Inaugural Rodeo: Coors, Jackson Rancheria Casino Resort, Les Schwab Tire Center, MP Associates Inc., and Thompsons Auto and Truck Centers.

Garden Concert

Garden Concert

 

In a dazzling summer garden setting, fit for a wedding, AmadorArts is planning a fundraising Home Concert on Saturday evening September 13. 

Jazz and pop music by Herb Boxhorn and Klaudia Promessi will be the focal point of the intimate event where only 80 guests will be seated around the spacious, shaded landscaped grounds of the Sutter Creek home of Diane Olsen and Stan Redkey.

Complimentary “hefty” appetizers, catered by the Mother Lode Deli, and an affordable no-host Amador wine bar will complete the pleasures of the evening. 

Herb Boxhorn, guitarist and vocalist, brings his own unique styles combining his background of folk, blues, finger-picking, Jazz and Latin into an eclectic mix truly his own. Performing regionally for over 35 years, Herb puts his signature on many Jazz standards and contemporary tunes. Enriching the sound of this duo is Klaudia Promessi on saxophone and flutes. Promessi has toured and performed in Bay Area bands playing Latin Jazz, R and B, Soul and original music. She has composed and arranged music for films. They are both talented improvisers making each of their concerts a unique experience, especially when experienced in a beautiful garden setting like this one, enhanced by good food, wine, and friendship.

PRCA Rodeo

PRCA Rodeo

"The Start of a Tradition" is the theme for the Jackson Lions Club's Inaugural PRCA Rodeo to be held Sept. 13 and 14 at the Amador County Fairgrounds in Plymouth.

Plymouth's unique foothill setting provides a genuine cowboy atmosphere that sets it apart from bigger city events. Residents throughout the region welcome visitors to their small, close-knit community where bonds are formed by the hard work of ranchers, cattlemen, horse trainers and others who earn their living as the sun rises and sets. The deep appreciation for stock animal welfare is felt by all who wander past the hay bales. Amador County was the perfect location to bring opportunities to America's top-notch professional rodeo athletes and their fans.

Camille Sobon reigns as the first Jackson Lions Rodeo Queen. A horse woman since the age of six, Sobon currently works full time for her family winery while spending the off hours competing in cattle sorting, jumping, and team penning, as well as trail riding and training horses.  "Rodeo is special because it shows the western lifestyle, which I think is really important," Sobon said. "It's all about being rural, good to your neighbor, good to your family, and honest."

In addition to the rodeo, the Fairgrounds will feature a Home and Garden Show both days, and a Classic Car Show on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission to these events is free.  Widely acclaimed country rock group The Chris Gardner Band plays Saturday at 7 p.m. Admission is $5 general/free with rodeo ticket.

All PRCA Rodeo events will be held in the Fairground's Benny Brown Arena. Saturday's schedule is 4 to 7 p.m. Sunday's is 1 to 4 p.m.  Gates open at 10 a.m. for the Home Show on both days, and a Classic Car Show on Saturday.

Tickets are $20 adults, $10 youth 7 to 12, $5 under 7, and can be purchased online at JacksonLionsClub.org/Rodeo or in person at the Feed Barn in Martell, and The Biggest Little Kitchen Store in Jackson.

For more information, visit JacksonLionsClub.org/Rodeo, email jacksonlionsrodeo2014@gmail.com or call (209) 418-9071. Find them on social media at #AmadorPRCA.

The Jackson Lions Club would like to thank the sponsors of the Inaugural Rodeo: Coors, Jackson Rancheria Casino Resort, Les Schwab Tire Center, MP Associates Inc., and Thompsons Auto and Truck Centers.

Meet Painter Cathleen Berglund

Meet Painter Cathleen Berglund

EVENT DATE:  September 13, 2014 - September 14, 2014

LOCATION:  AmadorArts Gallery, 11-A Randolph St., Sutter Creek

Saturday and Sunday September 13 -14 / Saturday and Sunday September 20-21 Painter Cathleen Bergl;und Will be in AmadorArts Gallery

AmadorArts has added weekend artist demos to accompany the exhibit in its gallery during the month of September.  They’re free, fun, and not to be missed, because of the artistry and personalities of the artists.  Painter Cathleen Berglund will be in the AmadorArts Gallery September  13,14, and 20, 21 from 1-4 pm. She will be demonstrating the art of drawing and is looking forward talking with patrons about her work. Quirky realism, sophisticated primitivism, hard edge sentimentalism: all of these phrases have been used to describe Cathleen's style. She favors telling an implied story with her art, with a little humor hidden in isolated details.

 The AmadorArts Gallery is at 11-A Randolph St., Sutter Creek, one block off Main St., and is open Saturdays 1:00 to 4:00 pm and weekdays 9:00 am – 2:00 pm. Visit www.amadorarts.org or call 209-267-9038 for information.

Scott Harvey Wines Annual Grape Stomp

One of the best wine tasting rooms anywhere is hosting one of the most entertaining events of the year - the annual Grape Stomp!
 
Scott Harvey himself will once again lead intrepid stompers through the ins and outs of successfully extracting that precious juice from ripe grape bunches the old fashioned way. Stompers will feel the gush between your toes as your Swabbie collects the nectar of the Gods, leading you both to victory… and great prizes!  Old Soles will be playing music to pair with fine wines and purple feet.
 
New this year… Scott has challenged the winemakers from other Sutter Creek tasting rooms to a “Winemakers Heat” with the proceeds going to the winning winemaker’s charity of choice.
 
$35/person  $30/person for Wine Club members.  Your ticket includes lunch, snacks, a glass of wine, soft drinks, music, participation in the Grape Stomp (optional) and the opportunity for fantastic Scott Harvey prizes. Space is limited, so purchase your ticket today.

Artist Kathryn Devlin at Amadorarts Gallery

Artist Kathryn Devlin at Amadorarts Gallery

Kathryn Devlin will be demonstrating on September 27 and 28, from 1-4 pm. For her clay demonstration on Saturday, September 27, she’ll begin construction of a bowl similar to the one on exhibit with birds and oak branches.  She’ll put the finishing details on it at the Sunday, September 28 demonstration.  She says, “I will use actual oak leaves for imprinting in clay, thus showing how easy it is to use virtually any object to achieve texture in clay as well as demonstrate how to sculpt details such as birds, acorns, and branches.”  She demonstrated at the County Fair so if you missed her there, now you have another opportunity.

 The AmadorArts Gallery is at 11-A Randolph St., Sutter Creek, one block off Main St., and is open Saturdays 1:00 to 4:00 pm and weekdays 9:00 am – 2:00 pm. Visit www.amadorarts.org or call 209-267-9038 for information.

Gregg Rolie Band

Gregg Rolie Band

Helwig Summer Concert Series Presents Gregg Rolie Band

A founding member of both SANTANA and Journey, and Rock ‘n Roll Hall of Fame inductee, Gregg Rolie is a true rock legend.

If you have ever turned on a radio, you most likely have heard his voice fronting the band “SANTANA”.

Gregg left Santana after album number four and he immediately went on to establish Journey with fellow ex-Santana mate, guitarist Neal Schon, in 1972.

This is not a tribute band, this is a true rock legend expressing his love of the music that represents both era’s - past and present.

Helwig Winery Amphitheatre Saturday, Septemer 27th at 8:00pm.
