Membership Benefits include: Members Meetings and Demonstrations, Art Studio Tour, Semi-annual Member Art Show, Public Art Venues, and more!
Our six monthly membership meetings each year provide a wonderful opportunity for local artists to spend quality time with other artists. Whether you are a well-known master or an aspiring novice, you'll enjoy our friendly gatherings where we share our passion for the visual arts, our questions and expertise, as well as tips, opportunities, and well-deserved recognition. Our meetings start with snacks and socializing, a few announcements, and then an exciting demonstration, art talk, or presentation. You are welcome to bring a friend to share in the fun.
Art Studio Tour
Each year El Dorado Hills Arts Association coordinates and publicizes a two-day self-guided tour of local artists' studios in the Spring. An EDHAA committee receives artists applications, designs and publishes a beautiful studio brochure; provides publicity via social networks, signage, and media outlets; provides directional street signs; and oversees a gallery show at Folsom's Gallery 48; for a successful tour that is free to the public. Most of the studios host more than one artist so it's a wonderful opportunity to work side by side with other artists while showing your artwork for sale to the public.
Public Art Venues
EDHAA coordinates local art venues for our member artists. Some of these venues are managed directly by EDHAA while others are handled as referrals of the business venues to our member artists. Local businesses are very interested in supporting our amazing art scene, and we are very interested in supporting our local business partners so it's a win all around. For most venues the artist's work is displayed for 3 months. Interested art customers are referred directly to the artist for easier sales transactions and no commissions.
Member Art Show 2019
EDHAA sponsors a member art show every other year at the Harris Center Bank of America Gallery. Our next show will be held in May 2019.
