Santa organized a curatorial committee of local artists and experts who jury the art exhibits at the Arts Center throughout the year. She led the organization through the financial crisis, wrote many successful grant proposals and worked with local artists, performing arts groups, schools and governmental agencies to help the Merced arts scene thrive.  For more information on the Merced County Arts Council, please visit http://www.artsMerced.org.

The Literary Director of the Fine Arts Galleria since 2009, Bardi Rosman Koodrin, MA originated the concept of “Events within the Event” for writers to give free workshops and readings to fairgoers.  There is also an annual Author Book Day with over 20 local authors promoting their work.  In conjunction with the fair, Notre Dame De Namur University www.ndnu.edu offers a contest with a $20,000 Creative Writing Scholarship for a deserving high school student.

An exciting new addition is the Sand Hill Review Press publication of Carry the Light, a 300 page anthology of stories, poems, and essays in which each entrant has at least one piece published. sandhillreviewpress.com This published collection of contest submissions appears to be the first of its kind for a county fair, and will be available on Amazon.com.

Carry the Light, San Mateo County Fair’s literary anthology 2012 book, continues the progressive outreach of the Fair with the publishing of all accepted literary entries by the Sand Hill Review Press (www.sandhillreviewpress.com) via Amazon.com.

Carry the Light, a 300-page anthology, includes short stories, poetry and personal essays that tell compelling stories. All were collected during the pre-fair entry period using the Fair’s high criteria for excellence. It is widely believed that this is the first anthology of its kind to be accepted for sale at Amazon.

Capitalizing on the thirst for the written word in the Peninsula and Bay Area, the San Mateo County Fair is offering a wide variety of free “events within the event” writing workshops, panels, short plays, presentations, author interviews, readings, book-signings, and even songs of the sea on their literary stage.

To commemorate the book, the Fair is hosting an autograph party on Sunday, June 10, at 4:30 pm in the Fine Arts Galleria in Expo Hall where published authors will be on hand to sign books and discuss their works.
