*DEDICATION OF HISTORICAL LANDMARK *OPENING OF
‘THE ART STUDIO” *BOOK SIGNING
Some exciting historical events are happening Saturday, March 9th in downtown Murphys. On the corner of Main Street and Big Trees Road (across from the red barn at the 4 way stop) The Malspina-Davies building was originally constructed in 1898 and the Native Sons will be officially dedicating it as a local historical landmark. Recognition and celebration will 2be taking place at the historical property, currently the office of RE/MAX Gold and will be opening day for the brand new ”The Art Studio”, hosted by local artist Judie Cain.
Judie Cain is taking over the rear portion of the building (behind and between RE/MAX Gold and Rob’s Diner) as her working studio, classroom and show space. It will be open by appointment and periodic special events only, such as classes and shows. Saturday will be a preview of things to come for Judie, with her first guest artist, Sarah Evans, as her show companion for this two-day event.
Several years ago Judie Cain had an art gallery in Forest Meadows (The Art Gallery) and well known artist, Sarah Evans had been one of her top selling artists. So selecting longtime friend and fellow artist, Sarah Evans, as her first guest artist is a natural and a privilege. Sarah has an impressive scholastic and professional career in the arts and in fine art and is highly collected. She is represented locally by the Art On Main Gallery, in Murphys.
At Judie’s former Cain Art Studio in Forest Meadows she taught oil painting fundamentals and “color demystified” classes and at various other venues. She has been represented in galleries and has taught in the three western states. She is represented by Town Hall Arts in Copperopolis, where she also has taught, and by Image Connection Agency, in Stockton. The larger studio space will allow Judie to hold classes and shows, as well as create.
Please join us for this impressive historical and arts event. Tours of the historic building and book signing by Maureen Elliott, of her new book, “They Walked The Streets of Murphys Camp”, will begin at noon. The Native Sons impressive dedication ceremony begins at 1 p.m. Everyone is welcome to this special event.
