"ArtMixAmador": Celebration of 36 Years of the Arts in Amador - Sat Sept 15

ArtMix Amador” will be a celebration of Amador County’s 36 years of having the arts as a cultural catalyst in the region. Save the date of Saturday, September 15 and the location, the Jackson Rancheria Casino Resort Garden Terrace and Grand Oak Ballroom. Starting at 5:00 pm this will be an art party to end all parties.

Grab your friends to celebrate creativity and to see the arts from a new perspective. Showcasing Amador County’s current and future local artists, ArtMix Amador will be a unique opportunity for locals and visitors alike to celebrate, support, and learn more about the importance of the arts in schools and the community. Since 1982 the Amador County Arts Council, aka AmadorArts, has been implementing its long standing programs of Arts Education and Advocacy.  So, the Amador Council of Tourism, in partnership with Jackson Rancheria Casino Resort, are presenting the Amador ArtsMix, open to the public for only $10 entry.

Interactive art exhibits will span from the Garden Terrace to the Grand Oak Ballroom, including painting, encaustic, button making, community poetry, and more, providing guests an entire scope of what the sizeable Amador County arts community has to offer.

Unexpected experiences will only be here at the ArtMix Amador. But some scheduled ones will be the performers from Amador, Argonaut, and Independence High Schools, as well as homeschools, who have amazing talents in poetry, music, theater, and dance.

ArtMix Amador, what better event to announce the first-ever Poet Laureate of Amador County. After a recent nomination and selection process, this honorary 2-term position will go to a local outstanding poet, whose task will be to integrate poetry into the community, including young people.

Wait, there’s more: the evening will continue into the Ballroom at 7:00 pm to dance the night away to local favorite, Darin Sexton and the Highway 49 Band. Enjoy tunes, food, and thirst quenchers, as concessions and bars will be available for purchase.

$10 Tickets available at JacksonCasino.com or at the Cashier’s Cage in the Casino. All proceeds will benefit the non-profit Amador County Arts Council.
