Fall Colors Open Studios Art Tours approaches

THIS OCTOBER more than 70 local artists will welcome the public to 46 studios and art galleries during a free tour spanning two weekends.  The Center for the Arts with support from Nevada County Arts presents the Fall Colors Open Studios and Art Tours 2015 held on October 10 & 11 and 17 & 18.  It’s an event that showcases a thriving arts community, two walkable historic downtowns and nearby nature trails in a blaze of fall color.

The tour kicks off with a free-for-all-ages Preview Exhibit and Artist Reception at 6 p.m. Thursday, October 8 at The Center for the Arts in downtown Grass Valley. Stop by The Center to meet local artists and view their work, plan a weekend tour, buy art, preview upcoming shows and check out youth workshops.

Throughout the tour, the public will get the chance to meet artists and view new work and buy original art in a wide range of media and styles. The tour allows art lovers the chance to see the artists’ workspace – the place where art is made – watch live demonstrations, and learn about the art process from concept to completion.

This year’s tour features painters, printmakers, photographers, ceramicists, illustrators, jewelers, designers, woodworkers and more. Up to 27 locations on the tour will offer demonstrations and special projects.

Participants are encouraged to experience all that the community has to offer by checking out local shops and restaurants and community events like the First Friday Art Walk and the Saturday Farmers Market.

To plan a tour, look for the Fall Colors Tour Guide Companion that will include: artist information, maps, nature trails, weekend events, live music and a list of tasting rooms and restaurants.

Copies of Fall Colors tour guides are available at: The Center for the Arts, Art Works Gallery, ASIF Studios, BriarPatch Co-op, Grass Valley and Nevada City Chambers, Alexander Gallery, Summer Thyme’s, and The Artist Workshop.
