The Wild & Scenic Film Festival is coming to town and Nevada City has turned into an art gallery. The film festival in collaboration with Nevada County Arts has brought over 60 local and visiting artists. The works are being showcased in venues ranging from New Moon, Mowen Solinisky Gallery, Miners Foundry, Scotch Broom, Matteo’s Public and Kitkitdizzi. The theme for this year’s festival is Climate Change and the varying mediums of work illuminate this theme in a range of ways. Check out the art and wine stroll on Saturday afternoon, or pop into any one of the locations through out town and soak up the amazing talent on display. Photos in today’s post spotlight artists: Art of the Wild, LeeAnn Brook, Phil Brown, Sheila Cameron, Sarah Coleman and Tahiti Pehrson, Kenna Foster, Jeff Litton, Dylan McConnell, Terra Nyssa, Richard Swayze, Amy Yerman and Katherine Schad.
