Wild and Scenic Artist Showcase

Nevada City Wild and Scenic Film Festival Artist ShowcaseWild and Scenic Film Festival has returned and with it the community is transformed into an art gallery.  This year both downtown Nevada City and Grass Valley have almost 50 artists on display.  If you have time this weekend take a moment and check out the collections, many are on display in the windows of local businesses, others invite you inside to see more.  The Art and Wine Stroll will be Saturday afternoon, with tastings from 4-6pm in Nevada City and 3-5pm in Grass Valley.  For a complete list of the artists and the wine tastings click here for a map.  Today’s blog post shows the art of Mowen Solinsky Gallery, Kelsey Bowen, Ed Hensley, Liz Collins, Nevada County Yarn Bombers, Jim Pyle, Edward Rotberg, Kara Asilanis, Greta Broda, Karel Hendee, Katie Wolff, Paul Dessau,  David Wong, Eileen Blodgett, LeeAnn Brook and Ridge Tapestry Project.  Many thanks to Nevada City and Grass Valley Chambers, Nevada County Arts, California Arts Council and the Wild & Scenic Film Festival for featuring these talented artists and the local businesses for putting them on display.
