Sponsors Needed

Each year the Amador County Artists Association hosts a studio tour to showcase the richness and variety of artistic talent in Amador County, and to raise money for scholarships, student art show and other projects. Because the tour is free to the public, ACAA generates funds through artist fees and a raffle of works by participating artists. To defray costs, ACAA is looking for business or organization to help sponsor the event. Interested parties are invited to contact Fundraising Chair Janet Piccola, at 304-6795 or
