Placer County’s fourth annual Employee Art Show opens Nov. 29

Published on November 22, 2016

Placer County’s fourth annual Employee Art Show, Placer Creates, opens Nov. 29. The show, coordinated in partnership with PlacerArts, will display over 60 pieces created by 27 artists at five county building locations for public viewing.

“For some employees, Placer Creates is the first time they have displayed their artwork,” art show committee chair, Ferrin Call, said. “Placing the art in public spaces allows us to share our talents with the community we serve and show them another side of county employees.”

Visitors will experience a different flavor of art with each county building they visit. Textiles, paint, fused glass and even music will be on display for everyone to enjoy.

This year, the Placer County Youth Commission contributed a collaborative piece to the show as a guest artist entry. Inspired by their involvement in the International Hexagon Project, each commissioner created a hexagon that represented their passion for leadership and completed the phrase “I stand for…”. Their work will be on display at the County Administrative Center in Auburn.

Everyone is welcome to attend Placer Creates’ opening reception on Nov. 29, from 4:30-6:30 p.m. at the Community Development Resource Center in North Auburn.
