Art Works Gallery is located in the center of a vibrant visual and performing arts community, the historic gold mining town of Grass Valley, California.
Thirty-five talented artists cooperate in presenting their work in this 2,000 square foot 19th century building. All the artists live and work in the Sierra Foothills in and around Grass Valley and Nevada City. Their work includes ceramics, jewelry, paintings, wood turning, furniture, fiber arts, mixed media, photography, sculpture and glass. Much of their work represents the beauty of the local region either through the materials they use or though the visual landscapes depicted. Local materials are used often and include Nevada County clay, locally grown gourds, local woods and precious metals.
The gallery also reflects the strong importance the Nevada County artistic community places on sustaining their local environment. Several of the artists specialize in “green art” which is built exclusively from recycled materials.
The gallery's distinctive selection of art created by local artists who are passionate about preserving their local art and culture captures the beauty and bounty of the Northern Sierra Nevada foothills.
