The Art Walk and Wine Tasting is the AAI's largest event of the year and a fundraiser for art education in local schools. It is also the culmination of each year's Second Saturday's series, which features a noteworthy art event on the second Saturday of selected months from March through October.
Your $25 wineglass purchase helps promote art and art education in Idyllwild. Proceeds go to Idyllwild School's smARTS program and to the scholarship fund at the Idyllwild Arts Academy. Wineglasses can be reserved ahead of time through the Town Crier web site (www.towncrier.com) or purchases at Idyllwild Realty (North Circle Drive - across from the Rustic Theater) on the day of the event. Group rates are available.
Artists and galleries have prepared special exhibits for the event. At Quiet Creek 'Living Room' Gallery, award-winning landscape paintings, ceramics, and photography will command your attention while you enjoy eclectic tunes, courtesy of house DJ "Mikey."
At The Courtyard Galleries, lively sounds from the popular band "Change Required" will enhance the courtyard's ambience while Nel Ivancich's new exhibit, "Paper or Plastic," will provide a thought provoking focal point "Californian's use approximately 19 billion plastic bags annually," says Ivancich. "These bags eventually migrate to our landfills or the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, a circular hodgepodge of litter in the North Pacific Ocean that is the size of Texas." Work by the gallery's seven permanent artists will also be on display.

The Witches Tree

somewhere near Idyllwild,CA
A couple years ago, a friend showed me a tree, that ancient Idyllwildians named "The Witches Tree" It is located somewhere near Idyllwild in the San Jacinto mtns. It is amazing. Its been said that there's often been sightings of wicked wild dancing there silhouetted by the light of the moon. One night a year, be aware that on ole Hallowed Eve "the eve before All Hallows' Day," rumour has it that local Witches will gather that night, to dance creating energy for conjuring of spells. .
I ve been sworn to secrecy of its location, for fear of being turned into a toad or worse. . .
