Asif Studios Anniversary Show & Celebration - June 26th, 5 - 8pm!

The Artist's Studio in the Foothills is celebrating its first anniversary this month! To commemorate the event, the gallery will feature its 30 resident artist's paintings, drawings, prints, sculpture, ceramics and other media. The celebratory show opens Friday, June 26th with a reception for the artists from 5 - 8pm. Wine and refreshments will be served, and a studio art class & month long studio membership will be raffled off during the opening reception. The exhibit is open to the public and will hang through July 25th.

Now entering it's second year, Asif Studios is a living testament to the positive spirit of the artist! Home to over 30 residents, and becoming a well known and respected arts resource, the studio is fulfilling it's mission to become The Visual Arts Center of Nevada County.

"We are very happy and proud to present the works of this talented growing community of visual artists! The community aspect of the place seems to be what local artists value most about the studio, many of whom are scattered throughout the rural areas of the county... Visual artists finally have a center whose sole purpose is to grow and foster a connection between artists, other artists, and art patrons in the community!"
