Artists from all specialties, including water color, acrylic, oil, pottery, fine jewelry, stained glass and pastels will be showing their work. “This is a quality, juried art show presented as a celebration of all forms of art, from the traditional to the contemporary,” said Show Chair, Chrissy Trilling-Raices.
Besides a wide range of art forms, the weekend show includes children’s art activities and live entertainment by local musicians.

According to PIAC President Bill Pohlman, PIAC believes in the preservation of our cultural heritage and a responsible stewardship of community recourses. We believe in the power of the arts as a stimulant to our local economic environment. With our advocacy for the arts, we hope to encourage the highest aspirations in all art endeavors.
