Art at Wild & Scenic

The Wild & Scenic Film Festival and Nevada County Arts have partnered again to produce a Wild & Scenic Art Show. Throughout the Festival, juried art can be viewed at 12 locations in both Grass Valley and Nevada City. For a special experience, participate in the Art Strolls, scheduled on Friday in Nevada City and Saturday in Grass Valley, for a chance to meet the artists at their curated venues. Nevada County Arts is dedicated to the support and promotion of the arts in our community. For more information visit


Art awards are announced at the Awards Ceremony on Sunday, 1pm in the Stone Hall. Limited seating, pass or Sunday Mid Day ticket required. Thank you to our 2017 Art Jury, Nashormeh Lindo, Cheryl Haines, and Luanne McKinnon, PhD.



Tom Killion is an artist, author, and educator. Perhaps best known for his woodcut prints of the California landscape, his images depict vibrant and artistic treescapes, coastal, and mountain views. He allowed use of two of his prints for the 2017 Wild & Scenic Film Festival: Isosceles Peak for the official artwork and Kaweah Lake for the commemorative broadside. Killion has collaborated with Gary Snyder on three large format books you will want to get your hands on: The High Sierra of California, Tamalpais Walking, and California’s Wild Edge: The Coast in Poetry, History and Prints. The two will present together Saturday evening at our special event at the Del Oro in Grass Valley. His work is prominently on display at The Alexander Gallery, 225 Broad Street, Nevada City, and he’ll be present for an art reception and book signing Sunday, 11am – 1pm.


libeckiAndy Libecki, featured in the film The Time Is Now, is a glass blower in Chico, CA. “Glass Blowing (and virtually everything else) has an energy and a flow, your mood and state of mind reflects in the finished product, and carries on with that piece wherever it goes. The lesson here for me is to stay in the moment of optimism, and to enjoy my passion,” says Libecki. His amazing blown glass narwhals are on display in the Nevada Theatre lobby display case.


Congratulations to all of our 2017 Festival Artists!
