There is no question that our Artist Members "Got Talent".  In conjunction with the Idyllwild Community Center's Idyllwild's Got Talent weekend, our 4-Day Judged Art Show is sure to delight art lovers looking for amazing A-R-T.  

Like a Kaleidoscope, the talents of AAI artists will be reflected in their artwork.  With all art mediums represented and for sale, the motion and emotion of Idyllwild's art scene will be front and center May 11th-14th.      

Kaleidoscope Art Show is a judged art show that will be set up in the loft at Middle Ridge Winery Tasting Gallery.  Local art will also be featured at our nine unique gallery and art hot spots.   To bring foot traffic to our gallery and art hot spots, we are also looking to have artists working on their art set up at each of their business locations on Saturday, May 13th.  

Locations will be open all weekend.  Kaleidoscope Art Show Hours will be:

  • Thursday, May 11th (4pm-8pm)
  • Friday, May 12th (Noon-8pm)
  • Saturday, May 13th (11am-8pm) - reception starts at 4pm
  • Sunday, May 14th (Noon-6pm)
    Meet the artist reception will be on Saturday, May 13th, from 4pm-5:30pm.  With light appetizers provided by the AAI and wine available for purchase, attendees will get the opportunity to mingle with the artists before heading over to see the ICC's Idyllwild's Got Talent performances at the Town Hall.  Reception is free and open to the public.
