OAKMONT’S ANNUAL ART SHOW SUPPORTS SRJC ART SCHOLARSHIPS
Oakmont Village, Santa Rosa - On October thirteenth and fourteenth, the Oakmont Art Association will stage their 45th annual art show. Well over150 artworks will be featured, showcasing the work of our talented senior artists and craftspersons. The show supports the association’s scholarship fund for Santa Rosa Junior College Artists through a silent auction and raffles.
This year, the show will be dedicated to the memory of Bonnie Crosse, longtime Art Association Board Member, who passed away in March. The silent auction will be composed of Bonnie’s watercolors.
The show will be presented in Oakmont’s Berger Center, with hours from 11:00 am to 5:00 pm, both Friday and Saturday. The raffle drawing will take place on Saturday the fourteenth with a wine and cheese reception from 3:00 pm to 5:00 pm. Many local businesses and wineries support the event with donations.
The annual scholarship fund was established eleven years ago, with $1000 scholarships awarded to 2-3 promising young artists attending Santa Rosa Junior College, who are transferring to 4-year colleges. This year’s scholarship award winners are Cassandra Dias and Sydney Manning. They will show their work and be introduced at the Saturday reception.
