Salida Council for the Arts invites everyone with an interest in the arts to attend its monthly "Creative Mixer", Thursday, August 11 at 5:30 pm in the SteamPlant Paquette Gallery. The free public gathering is a popular venue for artists, writers, musicians, and other creatives to meet and socialize on a casual basis.

The event's featured guest artists will be the the Rocky Mountain Society of Botanical Artists--whose group show, "Botanica", is being held over for an unprecedented second month. The RMSBA is a diverse association of artists and collectors dedicated to the practice and perpetuation of botanical art and illustration, with a focus on plants in the Rocky Mountain Region.

Featured musician at the Creative Mixer will be innovative Salida ukulele player and singer Sunny Tingler, a former top finalist in the Colorado "You Got Talent" competition. Free hors d'oeuvres and a cash bar will be available; and guests are invited to use the popular "soapbox" time to make announcements of interest.

Salida Council for the Arts is an all-volunteer organization working for the betterment of the arts, artists, and community of Salida. For more information visit
