The 13th Annual Altar Show calls for artists

An orientation meeting for anyone interested in making an altar for this year’s 13th Annual Altar Show will be held from 3 to 6 p.m. Saturday at the Northern Mines Building in the Nevada County Fairgrounds. Spaces are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Artists are welcome anytime during the meeting.

The Altar Show will be held from Oct. 30 to Nov. 7.

An altar doesn’t have to be in a church. It’s a gathering, a collection, an assembly of parts and pieces into a creative whole with a sense of order, a visual and conceptual statement of whatever the altar’s creator wishes to show and say.
