Art Alliance of Idyllwild's 11th Annual Juried Member Show

IDYLLWILD, CA, 9/8/09 – Artists in Idyllwild are putting the finishing touches and strokes on their submissions for the Art Alliance of Idyllwild’s 11th Annual Juried Member Show. The three-day event takes place September 11 – 13, at the Rainbow Inn, located at 54420 South Circle Dr. The public is invited and there is no charge for the festivities.

The celebration begins Friday evening with an opening reception from 6-8pm. Come enjoy refreshments as you browse the fine works of original art submitted by the AAI’s 75 artist members. Their work includes painting, ceramics, sculpture, jewelry, metal art, glass, photography, fiber arts and furniture.

Among those submitting their work is Idyllwild photographer John Simpson. Simpson presents his stirring monochromatic print, "Portrait of a Serengeti Lion." In this haunting image, the viewer experiences the unique perspectives of this magnificent animal, not only from a distinct eye-to-eye point of view, but from a deeply emotional one. All proceeds from the sale of this image will go to AIDS orphans of Lyasomboro School, Tanzania, Africa.

At the reception, juror awards will be presented for the best photography, abstract art, representational art and three-dimensional work. Artists and guests will decide the Artists’ Award and the People’s Choice Award.

The 2009 Juried Members Show is sponsored by Idyllwild’s Middle Ridge Winery and is part of the Art Alliance of Idyllwild’s “Second Saturdays” series, which features an interesting art event on the second Saturday of each month from March through October. The Art Alliance of Idyllwild is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization with a mission to promote local galleries and artists, while furthering art and art education in the charming mountain town.
