The March 9 Creative Mixer sponsored by the Salida Council for the Arts features artist Gene Diodato and music by Salida local favorite Bruce Warren.
The creative mixer is set to run from 5:00 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. Thursday, March 9 at the Salida SteamPlant. The artwork of Gene Diodato has been held over in the Paquette Gallery through the month of March.
The Salida Council for the Arts has just introduced its new annual giving program: Friends of Salida Council for the Arts. This new program replaces Art Lovers and is designed to help us achieve some big new goals for 2023 and beyond:
Annual subscriptions of $100 and over, will receive a special invitation to the early viewing party for the Valley Visions show, before the opening night with the public.
The Diodato exhibition runs from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. daily through March.
