D. Ellen Day, local artist from Yuba City and board member of the Yuba-Sutter Regional Arts Council, will be leading artists on day trips to create works of art on-site at farm locations throughout the Yuba-Sutter region.
This plein air program, “Art Harvest,” will start in April and continue through August. Locations include Meridian, Bangor, Brownsville, Wheatland and Oregon House.
Participating artists will be donating one of their creations to be auctioned at the Arts Council’s “Harvest the Arts” event later this year. Artists interested in participating in “Art Harvest” may call the Arts Council office at (530) 742-ARTS (2787).
There is a new art show in town that you won’t want to miss!
The April 20th show is called Artisans Presence.
From 10 a.m. until 4 p.m., the show and sell event will feature about 20 local artists at our Yuba-Sutter Regional Arts Council gallery.
The event is free and open to the public.
Previously called the Spring Arts Fair, the show always takes place on the third Saturday of April.
There are still a few booth spaces available for artists who would like to participate.
Fee is $25, and participants must be members of the Yuba-Sutter Regional Arts Council. Come by the Arts Council office for an application to participate or phone 530-742-2787 weekday afternoons for more information.

There is anthology of Northern California writers in the works! If you are interested in finding out more, please read the announcement below.
My name is Dan O’Brien and I am looking for writers, specifically northern California writers for a regional anthology I am putting together. It is meant to highlight wonderful short fiction, poetry, essays, photography, and artwork from a particular area told by the people who live there, who breathe northern California.
I graduated from California State University, Chico, completing my graduate work there as well, and love the idea of highlighting the diverse voices north of Sacramento. I love the Sacramento valley, the mountains to the north and east, as well as the beautiful coast. In this way I can give back to a place that has given me so much.
I operate a literary and publishing consulting business and maintain a blog where I write about publishing, marketing, editing, independent authors, and sports. I have been the senior editor and marketing director of a national magazine, and I have published more than a dozen of my own novels and hundreds of articles.
If you have any other questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at email@example.com

Now in its 27th year, CSSSA offers instruction in seven different artistic disciplines: dance, music, theatre, visual arts, creative writing, film/video, and animation. California residents enrolled in grades 9 through 12 are eligible to apply to CSSSA. Each summer 500 students are selected to attend through a statewide competitive application process. Ensuring equity and access, no qualified student is denied admission to CSSSA due to financial circumstances; need-based scholarships are awarded by the CSSSA Foundation. CSSSA offers a unique opportunity for students to spend one month immersed in a creative laboratory experiencing the inspiring and rigorous daily life of a professional artist. As a bridge from high school to college, the program offers graduates three units of California State University course credit and names them “California Arts Scholars,” which distinguishes CSSSA graduates from their peers as they proceed to college and an arts career.
Alumni of the program include actors Zac Efron, James Franco, Craig McCracken, Katharine McPhee, and Kirsten Vangsness.

As a whole and in a wide variety of ways, artworks in Metamorphosis should remind viewers of the significance and joy of the seasons, the power of natural rhythms and the inevitability of both change and recurrence.
Each exhibition period, the Napa ARTwalk features a dynamic selection of outdoor sculpture from contemporary artists in the western United States. “Metamorphosis” will once again be installed along the Napa River in downtown Napa, highlighting the renaissance of new development and creativity in the area with up to 15 sculptures selected for display. All artworks are featured both online and in a print tour guide brochure available to the public.
Napa ARTwalk sculptures will continue to be situated along primary pedestrian corridors in downtown Napa, with all art sites within walking distance of one another. Located along main pedestrian walkways, a riverfront promenade, bridges, plazas and a park, several of these sites are in close proximity to the Napa River, with the remaining locations along major shopping and dining corridors.
Artists interested in submitting work for the 2013-15 exhibition may visit www.napaartwalk.org for application details and a link to the online application hosted on CaFE (www.callforentries.org). Work must be submitted on or by February 11, 2013 to qualify, with only completed artworks eligible for entry. Conceptual artwork proposals will not be considered. Each artist selected will receive a $1,500 stipend to supplement travel and installation costs.
The Napa ARTwalk has garnered both regional and national attention as an innovative Napa Valley visitor experience that highlights the region’s cultural vibrancy. The ARTwalk has been featured in media outlets including The Miami Herald, 7 x 7 Magazine, The Washington Post, and Sunset Magazine. Top Events USA heralded the ARTwalk as “establishing Napa itself as a cultural destination.”

Anyone can enter. There is no cost other than the postage on your piece. (Please understand that we can’t accept Postage Due items.)
No artwork will be returned or, ahem, considered purloined. The Arts Council reserves the right to display (physically and electronically), give, donate, award, auction or otherwise sell your entered artwork to benefit the arts in the Yuba Sutter region it serves. You may retain and use scans/photos of your entry.
• One work will be deemed “Best in Poe” and the artist awarded US $100 and a certificate.
• All entries will be displayed in an online gallery viewable by anyone worldwide and will serve as artist documentation.
• Selected pieces will be displayed in public spaces in Yuba and Sutter Counties, California, USA during The Big Read.
Your mail art piece must be inspired by the life, themes or work of Edgar Allan Poe and you must tell us how/why.
The entry process is two-fold:
(1) send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with “Mail Art” in the Subject Line. In the email provide your name and your city/town, state/province and country. We’ll use that email to contact you if you are the winner. Also in the email, in 50 words or less, give us the title of your work, if any, and (mandatory) what work by Poe inspired your piece and what about that story or poem spoke to you. Entries without this element will not be considered.
(2) mail us your art piece. All work must be postally mailed without an envelope; i.e. the postage has to be ON the actual piece of art. (It’s a Mail Art Competition, after all!) Not to be redundant, but: no email or fax submissions will be accepted.
Mail with postmark no later than Oct. 15, 2012 to:
Edgar Allan Poe-stal
P.O. Box 2504
Marysville, CA 95901 USA
Note: You may enter more than one piece of art. You may include description of your entries in the same entry email but each art piece must be postally mailed separately.
Minimum size is whatever your post office allows you to send.
In the U.S. that’s a minimum of 3.5 x 5 inches (8 x 12.7 cm).
Flat artwork for this competition must not exceed 8.5 x 14 inches (21 x 35 cm). Any orientation.
Dimensional work should be no larger than, OK, let’s say, your head.
Of course, mail art is rarely limited to one side, but for display/gallery purposes, we’ll consider the face on which the postage is located to be the Front of the art piece.
All artwork submitted can be created using any medium, including digital, but must be original. This means it is your own work and it is the original piece. Not a photograph, scan or photocopy, but The Actual Thing. We know…it’s tough to part with some creations, but there you have it. Gotta do it.
Each piece must clearly incorporate your full name. This is how we will be able to match it with each artist’s email to caption the items in the online gallery, and to contact the winner.
Entries must be postmarked no later than October 15, 2012, regardless of which side of the International Date Line you’re on. We’ll start displaying pieces online on the 12th, in the order received.

The Pollock-Krasner Foundation’s dual criteria for grants are recognizable artistic merit and demonstrable financial need, whether professional, personal or both. The Foundation’s mission is to aid, internationally, those individuals who have worked as professional artists over a significant period of time.
The Foundation welcomes, throughout the year, applications from visual artists who are painters, sculptors and artists who work on paper, including printmakers. There are no deadlines. The Foundation encourages applications from artists who have genuine financial needs that are not necessarily catastrophic. Grants are intended for a one-year period of time. The Foundation will consider need on the part of an applicant for all legitimate expenditures relating to his or her professional work and personal living, including medical expenses. The size of the grant is determined by the individual circumstances of the artist. Professional exhibition history will be taken into consideration. Artists must be actively exhibiting their current work in professional artistic venues, such as gallery and museum spaces.

The Blue Goose Gallery in Chester is looking to turn their gallery into an artists’ co-op.
“We are looking for artists interested in being a member of the new co-op. If you are an artist of any medium (paint, photography, wood, glass, jewelry, sculpture, fabric, etc., etc.), or you know an artist who you think would be a great addition, please respond to this email as soon as possible. We envision having 30 – 35 member artists who will enjoy being part of a thriving and fabulous gallery. The gallery will offer an exciting range of art mediums and styles, from well-known artists to emerging talents, and will host summer art shows with rotating featured artists.
Local and area artists are welcome and it would be great to also have representation from Reno, Redding, Red Bluff, Cottonwood, Chico, Paradise, Susanville, Quincy, Graeagle and other areas.
Hours of operation of the Gallery could be maximized during the busy summer months, and minimized during the winter months. Artists from out-of-town could choose to help at the gallery more days in the summer so they don’t need to drive in during snowy weather.”
