Visit Tuolumne County is excited to host the 2nd Annual Tuolumne County Art Week, a celebration of artists of all kinds and the creativity that is deeply rooted in Tuolumne County.

Tuolumne County artists of all mediums, art shops, and galleries are welcome to participate in Tuolumne County Art Week.
Tuolumne County Arts is collaborating with Columbia College and their first show is entitled: “Local Artists, Past and Present.” The show consists of pieces from Tuolumne County Arts Alliance’s permanent collection, artworks from the collection of Claudia and Arnold Puccinelli, the Surendorf Foundation, and works that are on loan from some of our artist/friends. The show runs through April 16th. It is inspired work and shows the range and professionalism of our local artists past and present. Call Columbia College for times of operation at 209-588-5100.
