Did you make it the annual Nevada City Artisan Festival at the Miners Foundry? Artist ranged from paintings, photography, textiles, pottery, jewelry, glass works and more. The festival continues Saturday and Sunday from 10am-5pm, admission is $3, children under 16 are free. Photos today capture some of the work by Sweetland Pottery, Zen Vase, Pottery Texture Queen, Kris Johnson, Fine by Design Custom Jewelry, Summer Thompson, Karel Hendee, Eileen Blodgett, Liz Collins, Kathryn Wronski and LeeAnn Brook. I had the chance to have a nice chat with Nancy Nelson, of Nevada County Arts, who says now is a great time to become a member and help support the thriving art community in Nevada County.

Make sure you ask Phil for a tour and Anne for a wine club membership form while chilling on the lawn listening to the Star People.
