Small Works Holiday Show Opening Reception a BIG success!

Two hundred-fifty people gathered at the Artist's Studio in the Foothills gallery on Friday, November 20th, for the opening reception of the Small Works in the Foothills Holiday Show! Though the weather forecast promised the season's first snow storm, it didn't seem to discourage anyone from coming to kick off the holidays with this, one of a kind, exciting holiday art event!

Sixty participating artists enjoyed a lively evening sharing fine art, food and wine with friends and loyal patrons. Throughout the busy evening, works came off the walls, and into the hands of happy holiday gift-givers, as gallery attendants quickly filled empty spots with new works. ...And new works continue to arrive daily, as the artists strive to keep up with the demand of this popular show! The 600 piece show will hang through January 9th, 2010!

Now in its second year, Asif Studios proudly embraces its local community of artists and art patrons, fulfilling its mission to become the visual arts center of Nevada County!
