More Artists, All Artist Booths on the Grass, A Community Event!

The 2019 Saratoga Rotary Art Show marks it’s 62nd anniversary May 4 and 5 back on the lawn at West Valley College in Saratoga from 10am to 5pm each day. Our artists and community patrons will be thrilled to be back on the lawn to enjoy exquisite art from over 100 artists along with wine, craft beer and food trucks. Local entertainment and a Kids Corner add to the fun.

Over 100 fine artists and craftsmen will showcase their works offering a wide variety of fine art:  paintings, sculptures, apparel, functional items in glass and wood, jewelry, photography and mixed media--something for everyone!

Produced since 1957 by members of the Saratoga Rotary Club, the Saratoga Rotary Art Show raises funds for local and international charities under the guidelines of the Saratoga Rotary Charitable Foundation. To date, the Saratoga Rotary Foundation has granted  over $2.5 million to local and international nonprofits serving the needs of our communities and those worldwide. 

The Saratoga Art show is produced with 99% support from our club members, family members and friends. We raise the support funds, market the event, serve wine and beer, organize the entertainment, welcome the artists with food and beverage, and encourage the community to come and buy! It’s a great day for the club and a  great service to our community.

 

– James Lindsay, 2019 Art Show Chairperson

 

This year's featured artists are husband and wife  team Scott Graham and Cristy Aloysi of Viscosity Studio in Boulder Creek who design and make original blown glass pieces.  Prior to moving to Boulder Creek they studied and worked at various studios in the US and Europe.  Blown glass has traditionally been thought of as something for the home, with their latest work they are exploring glass as a sculptural element in the garden.  Their use of vibrant colors lends an element of playfulness and contrasts with natures most muted backdrops.  
 
The Saratoga Rotary Art Show is made possible each year through the generous donations of our sponsors and corporate partners. Please join us in thanking our 2019 main sponsors by clicking to find out more about their businesses:

Assembly of CARE Packages for Operation Care and Comfort at Saratoga Rotary Club

 

Saratoga Rotary Club members assembled care packages for the troops on October 6th during the club meeting. The rotary members assembled around 300 care packages for the active duty members stationed all over the world. The care packages included beanies, hand-warmers, chapticks, dental hygeine items, playing cards, snack bars, and beef jerky. These packages were assembled for an organization called Operation Care and Comfort

 

Operation Care and Comfort provides support and comfort to “adopted” units of deployed U.S military service members, serving in Iraq, Afghanistan, and other conflict regions. Working with the local community and through donations received from all over the country, OCC assembles and ships care packages to the adopted units every month until they return home.

 

Saratoga Rotary could not have done this without generous donations from some of the club members and also from Community members like Dr. Davie Erickson, DDS, of San Jose and the representative for Colgate, Tabatha Stansberry.
