Burger Art Experience in Amador City lead by Artist Greg Traverso

 

A Fine Art Collection by Greg Traverso

Amador City Presents Burgers At The End Of Nowhere… a Burger Art Experience! Amador City is a small town located inside of Amador County, which is home to artist Greg Traverso and his first ever burger art collection.

Greg has a variety of graphic design experience that spans over 20 years. On April 2nd, 2022 he displayed his fine art collection of mixed media burger art in the close-knit, warm welcoming town. It was most definitely a vibe, featuring Matt the DJ’s awesome music from Small Town Food and Wine located right across the street!

Traverso did a wonderful job of not only sharing his art with us but truly excelling in creating an art experience.

Greg is also one of Amador Arts newest team members. You’ll see his graphic design work on our social media page as well as our flyers! He is a pleasure to work with and is an important piece to our creative puzzle. His pieces are currently still up if you’d like to get in on the burger fun and buy some art.

Artist Statement from Greg Traverso

“The burger project is a collaboration with End of Nowhere Winemaker, Chris Walsh. He not only offered me the space, but he donated several of his used canvas’. I had previously painted and sold a couple of burgers paintings out of the tasting room, so this was an opportunity to a) paint more burgers and really explore the process of painting a full collection. And b) Have an event around bringing back the End of Nowhere’s popular Burger menu for the summer.

I started painting burgers, the first time I had painted on canvas since college, during the 2020 Election coverage. I think the anxiety and the intense air around politics just opened a window for me to step away from reality and express – it was kind of done in my mind. Using what I had in my house ( spray paint, watercolors, stencils, acrylic) I started painting. And this is where it has taken me.

With my background in graphic design and event design, I took this opportunity to create a full art experience with merch, music, vibe, and space. Hope this is the first of many!”

The Cabaret Fundraiser & What’s to come!

What an event! If you missed our Cabaret fundraiser you definitely missed out. This fundraiser, in partnership with the Amador Senior Center, helped Amador Arts raise money for arts programs in Amador County.  Local Artists donated to the auction and raffle and a few lucky winners got to go home with beautiful art pieces. 

 

Amador Arts events feature amazing creative people from all over Amador County. Amador Arts is here to showcase the artwork of local artists and creatives alike. Together, we build a stronger community based in love, creativity and oneness. We hope to see you at our upcoming reception for the Student Art Show, featuring art from local students in grades TK through 12, from all over the county. The reception is on March 26 from 2 to 4 PM at the Amador Arts Center, inside the Amador Senior Center at 229, New York Ranch Road in Jackson. Come support our talented youth and raise awareness of the need for art education in our local schools.
