Due to the rising Omicron wave, we’ve decided to change a few dates! See our newsletter for more details (and make sure you’re subscribed), but here’s a summary:

The artist deadline for Arts & Wine Festival booths has been extended to February 1st.

The Wrightwood Blues Society’s Not-So-Newlywed Game has been postponed to the spring, date TBA.


Wrightwood Blues Society Christmas Show

We wanted to include photographs from the WBS Christmas Show last month, but didn’t receive them in time—now we can! The event took place at the Wrightwood Place, formerly Sunrise Church on Highway 2, which will be a beautiful venue for local events moving forward.

This show featured a blessing by Father Pat, comedy by Jim Barnes, and more than a dozen local musicians, including the Greg Jones Band, Rodger Whitten on piano, Gayle and Company, and more. There were tamales! There was wine! The holidays in Wrightwood had never been more cheerful, and we can look forward to more WBS events at the Wrightwood Place in the future.





December 2021 Newsletter

This month’s WAC newsletter features an updated on the Mary Duman’s Symbiosis exhibit, a list of High Desert holiday happenings from Esmé Stevens, and a look forward to the next big WAC adventure—with a chance to meet John Frame. For the poem of the month, Rattle provides a sonnet paired with nature photograph from their Ekphrastic Challenge series.
