Small Works Show Opening Reception a BIG success!

Four hundred people, armed with umbrellas, braved the rainy roadways on Friday, May 1st to attend As if Studio's opening reception for the Small Works in the Foothills gallery show. The show will hang through the end of May, featuring over four hundred works by more than fifty local artists in the Nevada County area. This show has a great variety of exceptional artist's works, at very affordable prices.

The gallery is thrilled to report sales of more than forty pieces during the reception, raising over $200 for the Nevada County Foodbank. Old and new fans continue to stop in daily to browse the show, and enjoy the beautiful gallery space. Literally filled to the brim, the gallery is overflowing with energy... the irony of these small, intimate works creating such a huge impact on the space is really quite something!

Studio & Gallery Hours - Monday-Friday 10am-5pm, Saturday 11am-4pm.
