The Artists Studio in the Foothills (ASiF) Gallery and Visual Arts Center
is proud to present their First Annual Student & Teacher Show! The show will feature the works of over 75 ASiF students and their teachers, showcasing just a handful of the centers' fine art program offerings.
Adult and childrens' student art work, from papier mache to fine ceramic sculpture, oil, pastel and acrylic paintings, will be displayed. Though only some of the art will be for sale, all of the work on display is a testament to the high quality art instruction offered by resident instructors at the center.
ASiF Studios opened its' doors in June of 2008, with a vision of becoming The Visual Arts Center of Nevada County. Offering professional art instruction and state of the art facilities for resident and visiting instructors, private and shared studio space, drop in studio use, community classrooms for painting, drawing, printmaking, mosaics, wheel throwing, and sculptural ceramics, and a gallery, to promote residents and local Nevada County artists.

With over twenty resident artists with year round open studios, the center features themed gallery shows every six to eight weeks.
