The 9th annual “Artistic Sensations” will be held at the T.S. Glide Ranch in Davis on Friday, May 10 from 6 pm – 8:30 pm. Event proceeds will be used to support YoloArts’ art education programs, including Artists in Schools, throughout Yolo County.
The evening’s featured artist will be Alejandro Rubio, a native of Uruguay and resident of Northern California, where he is gaining recognition for his oil paintings.
Dinner at Artistic Sensations will be catered by Dos Coyotes, accompanied by wines from Yolo County, entertainment by trick roper James Barrera and music by the trio El Rado Scufflers. Special performing guests will be the junior high student musical group from Davis known as Mariachi Puente, under the direction of Hiram Jackson. The fundraising silent auction will feature paintings by Rubio, a week in Puerto Vallarta, student art work from schools around the county, and original artwork from county artists.
“We are so grateful to our sponsors and supporters for keeping arts education going in our partner schools around the county,” said Elysa Hillis, co-chairperson of this year’s event, and a member of the YoloArts board of directors.
