Everything Art at Wild & Scenic

We love showcasing amazing artistic talent at Wild & Scenic! So, we’ve teamed up again with Nevada County Arts Council to bring you the best from our region and beyond. Juried art can be viewed during the fest at seven locations in both Grass Valley and Nevada City. Art strolls are scheduled in both towns, plus you won’t want to miss the special hands-on art events and talented featured artists. To get it all started, join us for the Art Reception and Award Ceremony on Thursday from 4:30-6:30!

Here’s the whole scoop:
