AmadorArts’ Holiday Adornments Show and Sale offers a wide variety of clever and affordably-priced gift ideas including ornaments, holiday decorations and cards, jewelry, wearable accessories and much more. Over 20 local artists have been selected. Get a head start on the season, because this event opens Wednesday, November 5 and continues through December. The AmadorArts Gallery is located in Sutter Creek, just a block off Main at 11-A Randolph. That’s the street where Sina’s Backroads Café is on the corner.
Saturday, November 5, is not only the 1st Saturday Art Trek Artist Reception from 3-6 pm, but the time to place special orders for Millie Butler’s wreaths for pick-up later. On Saturday, November 12, the gallery will be open until 7:00 pm because it’s one of the stops on the Winefest.
The extended hours in November and December will be from 11:00 am to 5:00 pm every Saturday and Sunday. The day after Thanksgiving, called Plaid Friday, the gallery will be open 11 to 5.
