Villa Montalvo ArtSplash 2014

Villa Montalvo is a beautiful arts center in Saratoga. They have an artists' residency program designed to cultivate the development of a variety of artistic disciplines. This event is their showcase their artistic works.

While I have been to Villa Montalvo (it's specatular, by the way), I have not been to this event itself. It looks interesting, so I hope that it will turn out to be something fun.

The event itself is free. The parking is a bit of a challenge. There is parking on site for $10 a car. There is a free shuttle that leaves from West Valley College Parking Lot 5.

Let's meet up at the shuttle pickup location at West Valley College Parking Lot 5 , because it's somewhat hard to find people on the grounds itself if you've never been there before. We'll take shuttles up to the event and shoot for about an hour. We'll grab food from the food trucks, and I'll bring some photography book giveaways.

Note: When I asked for permission for the group to attend, the organization wanted to know if we mind sharing any photos that the group takes for use with their website, facebook, and possibly print materials. After the event, I'd like to ask you to send me some photos if you don't mind sharing. Of course, the photos will have the proper credits listed as well.

Thanks, and look forward to seeing you there

    I contacted Villa Montalvo through the form on their webpage and received this back.

    Hi Alex,
    These are really great! Thanks so much. Would it be OK if we used some of these when we promote the event in the future? We would give you photo credit, of course.

    Missed the lunch meetup. No lines at the three food trucks near the Artist's residences but a long line near the Villa.

    I really was looking forward to this but realized I have a conflict. You all have a great time!

    Have been there before, this looks like the people may be more interesting than the grounds.

      I think you're onto something David, I'm hoping to shoot some portraits of the artists
