Twenty-five clients of Placer ARC/Studio 700 in Roseville are exhibiting work in a variety of media including clay, acrylics, oil pastel, watercolor pencil, charcoal, watercolors, and paper mache, from now until February 12, 2013. The show can be viewed Mondays through Saturdays during regular bank hours.

 

Placer ARC is an organization for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Studio 700 is a bustling artistic hub where the clients have a colorful tapestry of options to express and develop their own artistic sensibilities, from ceramics to crafts and wearable art, from painting and three dimensional art to performing art, and from graphic design and classical drawing to digital animation. The art studio employs individuals who are themselves artists, thus engendering a remarkable program for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities taught by remarkable artist mentors.

 

The display is sponsored by the Placer Artists League (PAL), a program of PlacerArts. Umpqua Bank is located at 571 5th Street, Lincoln. Bank hours are Monday through Thursday from 9:00 to 5:00 PM and Friday from 9:00 AM to 6:00 PM. Its walls regularly display the work of local artists as part of its community involvement program.
