Vendors are required to be set up and open during the hours of the Fair. New hours beginning this year are 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday and 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sunday. No early packups, please. Kiwanis Lakeport will be serving a Pancake Breakfast from 7:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, so vendors may wish to be open early on that day. Each booth will receive two breakfast tickets.

A response to applications will be sent by April 30th.

Linda Marshbanks is current featured artist at Lake County Wine Studio in Upper Lake.
Linda Marshbanks knew she wanted to be an artist at the age of 5 when she watched her mother draw a picture of a woman’s face. She practiced drawing that picture over and over until she got it just right. Self-taught, she won her first trophy for art when she was in kindergarten and by her own admission, became a perfectionist.
To receive information about all of Lake County Wine Studio events contact Susan Feiler at (707) 275-8030 or firstname.lastname@example.org

Michelle Price is April featured artist with her art in display cases at Twin Pines Casino in Middletown.
Linda Moran, along with South Lake County Artists, are making a change about requirements to participate in showing art at the casino.
In order to be in the window, future artists will have to be a member of CMA and also be a featured presenter at the wine/art event. We're so fortunate to have this venue and we need to support the organizations that make it all possible.
Linda Moran is getting so many requests for the venues at the casino that it is almost filled for the year of 2015. For future sign ups, you will be required to be a member of South Lake Artists or Cobb Mountain Artists. It's a very popular venue and since they started in September, there have been sales each month for the last 4 months! That's pretty good! Your small membership fee helps them reach a broader audience and create new opportunities for all of us.
Contact Linda Moran with any questions. firstname.lastname@example.org
Dianna Brooks is connecting with Cache Creek Vineyards and Winery about organizing future Plein Air painting events at their Winery. Is anyone else interested?
Dianna has talked with some of the employees at Cache Creek Vineyards and Winery, recently, about artists gathering there to do some Plein Air painting. She said they liked the idea.
They are located just south east of Clearlake Oaks off Hwy 20 at the "Spring Valley - Long Valley Road" exit.
She, also, inquired if they would be interested in showing Artists paintings and artwork in their winery.
They said yes they are interested...but they said they don't have wall space to do this. They did say if we are interested we can come and set up our easels in the picnic area to do some Plein air painting (right next to the winery-and "elegant bathrooms").and we can sell our own paintings and artwork in the picnic area!!!
We would probably do this on a Saturday or Sunday.
The winery would want to know a week or two before we plan to do this so they can get flyers and get the word out to the public about our event.
So, Dianna’s question is....do you want to do this, are you interested in joining us in some Plein air painting at the winery? Are you interested in possibly selling your artworks?
She said it would be nice to get some feedback on this event idea. You can reach Dianna Brooks at email@example.com
The Winery’s website is: http://www.cachecreekvineyards.com/
They have Paninis to sell (ham and turkey) and of course wine.
They have free water. I forgot to inquire about sodas/snacks etc.
They have just opened their doors and are interested in more exposure to the public to their winery.
They will be having some musical events this summer and are currently building a bandstand at the picnic area.
Linda Kelly is updating our Lake County Artists brochure, our Lake County Artists book and our Lake County Artists website.
Linda Kelly with Lakeside Gallery at the Lucerne Harbor Artists Village is updating out double sided, three folding brochure that lists Lake County galleries, art venues, and artist studios. If you want to have your art related business in the brochure will be a small charge to help with printing costs. Contact Linda at firstname.lastname@example.org to let her know you are interested. We’ve distributed large quantities of these brochures, in the past, to as many tourist visited locations as possible. The more we can print and distribute the better.
Linda is, also, updating our Lake County Artists book and will be working on updating our Lake County Artists website. If you want to be part of these two projects contact her for that, too.

Cobb Mtn. Artists Open Studio Tour June 20th and 21st 2015
Who qualifies? Members and non-members in and outside of Cobb. If you don‛t have a studio,
you can pair up with a CMA member host who does.
New this year: We‛d like to expand the open studio experience to include the Middletown and
Kelseyville area. However, in order to do this, we feel there needs to be a minimum of 3 studios
in each area.
Because of logistics, if a minimum of 3 studios in each area is not met, we will do our best to find
a host studio on Cobb where you can show.
Deadline for Open Studio applications is May 23rd
For more information and to receive an application contact Alana Tanner at email@example.com
