Art at Wild & Scenic

For the third year we partnered with Nevada County Arts to showcase a variety of art from local and visiting artists. We’re proud to have featured 42 artists in 34 venues throughout Grass Valley and Nevada City. These artists bring a diversity of mediums and perspectives to bear on the human relationship to our rapidly changing planet. We invite you to spend some time taking in their work throughout the weekend.

Paul Colangelo at the Stonehouse
