MIDDLETOWN, Calif. – Ring in the holidays with a celebration of local art and artists at the Middletown Art Center’s Members Holiday Show Opening Reception this Friday, Nov. 29, from 6 to 8 p.m.

Engage in an evening of art and culture in downtown Middletown.

“The holiday show is different from most of the others we hang because there is no unifying theme. This makes curating more challenging, but very rewarding,” said Programs Director and co-curator Lisa Kaplan.

MAC professional members and affiliated artists who have participated in juried and curated exhibits throughout the year are featured in the show.

Authentic, locally made, high quality and affordable are just some of the common denominators of the work on view.

“We encourage everyone to join us at the opening reception or during hours of operation to see the show. Take pride in our local talent, and consider giving the gift of unique artwork while supporting Lake County artists and our local economy this holiday season,“ said Kaplan.

On Saturday, Dec. 14, from 4 to 8 p.m., the MAC will host a variety of artists and maker vendors inside the gallery and studio, and be a Passport to Fun station as part of Christmas in Middletown.

The MAC is a vibrant cultural hub and nonprofit dedicated to weaving the arts into the fabric of Lake County communities.

Exhibits and opening receptions are just one of many enriching events MAC hosts. These include dances, classes, films, performances, art and wine pairings and First Fridays.

Consider becoming an annual member with special discounts while helping to sustain local arts and culture, and art education. Donations to MAC are tax-deductible and greatly appreciated.

MAC is located at 21456 Highway 175 at the junction of Highway 29 in the heart of Middletown.

Gallery hours are Thursday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., Friday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Sunday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. or by appointment at 707-809-8118.
