Meetings

The Elk Grove Artists, Inc. meet on the fourth Wednesday of all months except June and December (and the third Wednesday in November) at the Carlton Plaza activity room. The Carlton Plaza is located at 6915 Elk Grove Boulevard just west of the Nugget grocery store (map). We meet for lectures, demonstrations of various art techniques and media, gallery tours, workshops, and outdoor paint-outs. From 6:30–6:45 p.m. we sign in and socialize. Business matters start around 6:45 p.m. which include announcements and sharing of art-related business information from the president and others. There is a “show and tell” portion for members to show works of art they‘ve been working on. This is followed at 7:15 p.m. by a presentation or hands-on demonstrations, ending around 8:30 p.m.

A nominal fee of $5.00 is charged to non-members after their first visit to cover speaker’s fees at meetings.

Special Events

We are constantly looking for ways to stimulate artistic growth among our members. In 2013 we took a few fields trips to various places such as High Hand Gallery in Loomis and Horton's Iris Farm for a sketch out. In 2014 any of the The Elk Grove Artists, Inc. members who chose to participate showed their work at the Union Hall Art Gallery in Sacramento. We have a drawing during each meeting that allows one lucky member to show a piece of art at the Elk Grove Fine Arts Center for one month.

june potluck

Speakers

The Elk Grove Artists, Inc. are proud to provide a lively and diverse fine arts program and presentation schedule each year so that members and guests can expose themselves to new mediums, up and coming techniques, and receive new inspiration for their own work. Each year brings a new set of regional professionals from diverse fine arts mediums that share their work and offer new insights, as well as refresh forgotten techniques. Actual demonstrations of their artistic process are frequently presented and guest participation is often promoted. There is also a yearly Art Critique Night where artists can bring their own work to be kindly and gently critiqued and coached.
