Small Works in the Foothills Show, May 1st - 30th...

Resident and guest artists at the Artist’s Studio in the Foothills, are getting excited about their upcoming “Small Works in the Foothills” gallery show, May 1st – 30th. The show will include the works of over forty local artists in the Nevada County area. Many creating paintings, prints, drawings, photographs and sculpture especially for the show... due to the size limit of under twelve inches. These are “small works” with big plans to surprise and inspire art lovers in our community!

“We’ve had an amazing response from local artists… Our goal is to cover every square inch of our walls, every shelf and pedestal with art!” says Amanda Paoletti, Studio Manager and Ceramics program Director. The original goal was to bring art to the community in a more affordable way, but an interesting side effect has occurred… working small has opened creative doors and inspired artists in new and exciting ways. “We’re thrilled by the positive energy this is show is creating for artists, and the community!”

Join the artists for an opening reception with wine and refreshments: Friday, May 1st from 5 - 8pm. The Artist’s Studio in the Foothills is located at 940 Idaho Maryland Road in Grass Valley. For more information call 530-274-7000, email or go to
