Although Idyllwild Art in the Park events only take place during the summer, our artists and musicians are actively pursuing their art all year long. Many have their work in galleries, online or participate in other events or show venues. It is our goal to inform you of as many of these events as possible so we have added a column to the lower right of this page. It will have many of the up-coming events listed by date. We will also post events on our Instagram and FaceBook pages. And of course, you can learn about our events and our community at . Plus, from time-to-time we will blog about specific “happenings,” like now…
December 8th, IAP members Scott and Kim Finnell will be hosting a “Studio/Gallery Tour” at their home in Idyllwild. Open to the public, it will feature Scott’s glass artwork as well as a tour of a working glass studio. Joining Scott will be seven other local IAP artists: Sandi Austin (hand-painted wine glasses and mosaic art); Jerry Baccaire (“dotilism” painting); Lisa Coffaro (glass jewelry, suncatchers, etc.); Donna Elliot (mixed media, digital art, etc.); Neil Jenkins (paintings and drawings); Julie Roy (fibers) and Art Tobias (ceramics). We are hoping that this will become an annual event, featuring more artists and their studios.
We are also pleased to share an Art Alliance of Idyllwild special event on Thursday, December 6th. A local organization made-up of artists and those that love art,AAI promotes art in our community while raising money for school art programs and other critical needs. The Call of the Wyld evening will begin with live music and jam session. There will be a delicious buffet and the “Call of the Wyld 2018” CD will be on sale.
