The gallery is hosting an annual visual arts competition in September called Celebrate Agriculture in the Arts, which attracts artists from across California. The catalogue of art trails allows you to visit the studios of local artists. This event offers art lovers the opportunity to see fine arts and crafts and to buy works directly from the people who make them.
Another attraction of particular importance is the Madera Wine Trail, which offers a tour of some of the best vineyards in California. Visitors can enjoy the same day a tasting of wines from the state's top winemakers and other unique styles celebrated by the Madero winemaker. In November, they hold an art festival before the holidays, which includes arts and crafts by many artists from the region. This show features artists and craftsmen working in a variety of media, including ceramics, glass, woodwork, painting, sculpture, photography and more.
It takes place in the Madera County Fair Square every second Saturday of the month from July to September. One of the best fairs in the area is the Madera District Fair, which has been in existence since 1937.
In May 1983 it became the Madera County Arts Council and in May 2018 the California Unified Artists Association (MCAA). The MCAA has an elected panel of 3 agency members, selected from a large community member selected by all 3 agency members.
Its task is to steer the entire urban regeneration project towards a cultural art centre. The members comprise the entire city of Madera, from the City Council to the City Council to the Board of Directors of the District. McCormick's painting style is clearly inspired by Western traditions, but the contemporary landscape has elements that combine aspects of traditional and modern styles and genres to create innovative paintings that are highly regarded throughout the country. The compositional directions of his paintings are determined by his experiences as an artist as well as his personal experiences and experiences as a resident of the area.
