Giving Activity



To showcase the vast array of talented artists throughout the Placer County region


To celebrate artists creating works in all mediums


To mentor artists and educate the community about the artistic process


To support the artists by offering opportunities to purchase art


For over 30 years, Placer Artists Tour has given local artists exposure to the public and to each other, creating enduring relationships and enriching cultural vitality.

Your donation demonstrates your support of the Tour and allows us to continue to expand our audience in our community and beyond.

Over the last three years we have partnered with other organizations to extend the reach of our programs, including Symphony and Art in the Park with the Auburn Symphony, and Natural Wonders, bringing plein air artists and photographers to Placer Land Trust’s preserves followed by an exhibit of their resulting work.

Thanks to a generous donation in 2023, the Joanne K. Neft New and Emerging Artists Fund was established. This program allows us to provide mentoring and professional development for artists new to the Tour each year.

We have furthered our emphasis on arts education. We added Art Schools to the Tour two years ago, as they are preparing future generations of artists. Our online Arts Directory lists Tour artists who teach children and adults.

Your gift, by helping to sustain our organization, will ensure the enrichment of Placer County both culturally and economically.
