October 5, 2012 (Jacumba)--The Jacumba Arts Council (JAC) is holding an art festival and fund-raiser between 1 p.m. and 5 p.m. on Saturday, October 27th at the Highland Community Center on Old Highway 80. Some of Jacumba’s most talented artists will be displaying their art and offering many pieces for sale. Mark your calendars now!

“We are particularly excited about the variety and talent of the artists who will be participating,” says Celia Sigmon, President of the Jacumba Arts Council.  “We have an incredibly diverse population of artists in and around Jacumba who have won national and regional recognition. The festival will feature plein air painters, a sculptor, a photographer, tie-dye artist and a hammered copper artisan. There will be art available for sale that spans different tastes and budgets.” 

JAC is auctioning an original serigraph by famed artist Coleen Ross in their silent auction.  Coleen’s celebrity clients include: Nicholas Cage; Brooke Shields; George Lucas; Teri Hatcher and Jane Seymour. The painting (with frame) is approximately 39" X43". Current gallery price is $2200 but the opening bid price will be far lower.  The planned raffle will feature several different-styled framed prints as prizes, including a Bothke poster of egrets approximately 40"X40" framed. This is a great opportunity to win some art for your walls for the price of a $1.00 raffle ticket!

The Jacumba Women’s Club will provide baked goods; water and soft drinks will be available for sale as well.
