February 3 is the Next First Saturday Amador Art Trek

The new year is a great time to start the habit of taking a monthly trip on the Amador Art Trek. The next First Saturday Amador Art Trek is on February 3, a free self-guided walk or drive-and-walk tour that provides easy public access to where art is located.

Part of Art Trek is the monthly “First Saturday”, when several participating galleries have receptions in the afternoon, 2-4 pm to kick-off their new shows.

You can go on the Art Trek ANYTIME that these 11 galleries are open. Just so you know, a new 2018 brochure is in the works produced by the non-profit AmadorArts that will highlight the gallery participants. It’s a quick reference guide -- map, names, addresses, and hours.
