All Day "ART SPIRIT” Teen Art Show Exhibit Continues Through March 5th
San Andreas, CA...Calaveras County Arts Council is proud to present an art show called “Artspirit.” Artwork will be by middle school and high school students in Calaveras County. For more information, contact Calaverasarts.org or 209/754-1774. The 21st annual Calaveras student exhibition ArtSpirit will open on February 2 with a reception at Calaveras Arts Council’s Gallery Store in San Andreas.

A popular showcase for young talent, ArtSpirit includes the art work of middle school and high school students in Calaveras County, ranging from paintings, drawings, ceramics, and photography. ArtSpirit was chosen as the title to symbolize that through art, students often feel a spirit to express their innermost feelings, whether it be rage and fear, or joy and spirituality.

This year part of the exhibition will feature artwork by students of Martha Wallace. Wallace, a popular watercolor teacher in Calaveras County, passed away in late 2017. She touched the lives of many kids through art, and they are pleased to have this opportunity to remember her.

Calaveras Arts Council has been assisting local schools for over two decades with its Arts in Education program which provides a wide range of visual and performing arts workshops and assemblies.

The exhibit provides the public with the rare opportunity to observe and purchase art created by the county’s many very talented teens.

The public is welcome to view the show during regular gallery hours, Monday –Thursday from 11:00am to 5:00pm; call for hours Friday and Saturday. The show closes on March 5. The gallery is located at 22 Main, San Andreas.

12:00 PM - 04:00 PM Murphys Old Timers Museum Will Display "Cattle in the Sierras " Through April
Murphys, CA...Funded by a California Stories grant from California Humanities, the Murphys Old Timers Museum, has produced an exhibit on the long-established practice of transhumance in the California Foothills and Sierra Nevada. Since gold was discovered in California in the winter of 1848, cattle have roamed the foothills in winter and spring, summered in the rich grasslands of the Sierra Nevada, and returned to their lowland homes in the fall. This annual pattern (transhumance), with established ranches and farms in the lower elevations and summer camps and pasturages in the high mountain meadows, is rapidly disappearing. Threatened with the diminishing price of beef to producers, difficulties in transporting livestock to their summer ranges, and environmental regulations, this 160-year old California tradition may disappear in the near future. Proponents of grazing argue that this will result in loss of mountain meadows and ponds as well as lowland ranches with their grass ranges to residential sprawl. Some environmental and hiking groups contend that livestock grazing in the mountains has led to degradation of streams and native ecosystems. The exhibit, and a video, recount the stories of historic cattle ranching in the California foothills and its battle to stay alive in the face of current environmental and economic challenges, also addressing the effects of its continued operation on mountain ecosystems. Utilizing historical and current photographs and the installation of a 1911 high country cow camp, this exhibit argues that by working together to solve grazing issues, ranchers, the Forest Service, scientists, environmental groups, and the public can resolve their differences, resulting in a win-win for all. A 15-minute video, presenting both sides of the issue and a hope for reconciliation, is forthcoming.




The exhibit will be on display at the Murphys Old Timers Museum, 470 Main Street, Murphys Fridays, Saturdays & Sundays 12 pm to 4 pm through April 29, 2018. Call for more info 728-1160.
