The Manzanita Arts Emporium has closed its doors DUE TO complications from the CORONAVIRUS business impact of closing the gallery and arts center. We are saddened about this, but there was no other choice. As an all-volunteer crew, with tourist and visitor restrictions such as they were, the center was not sustainable.

We meet via ZOOM, until notified. WRITER SUPPORT AND FEEDBACK MEETINGS, LECTURES & SEMINARS, ART RECEPTIONS, AND OTHER PROGRAMS, are all canceled at the Angels Camp location.

Sunday, March 8 – 6:30 – Intimate Concert at Manzanita, with Brad Hoshaw. New to our foothills from a hugely successful era in Omaha, Brad Hoshaw has already been making a big splash locally.

Manzanita is delighted to bring Brad Hoshaw to our Gallery for an intimate evening of music and song. Seating and space are limited, so reserve NOW to attend this first in a series of mini-concerts. Refreshments provided during intermission and after the show. $15.00 cash/ credit card: fee added – $20 at the door, if space available. Limited seating!
