Fall into Art is a joint project of Nevada County Arts Council, Center for the Arts and Art Works Gallery.
During September Nevada County Arts Council (NCArts) is partnering with Center for the Arts to present Fall into Art, a cross-section of artists from Art Works Gallery in Grass Valley. Eliza Tudor, Executive Director at NCArts says: This three-way partnership provides the stimulus for a unique group of local professional artists to show their work beyond everyday contexts. At Nevada County Arts Council we enjoy harnessing opportunities to organize collective interests, and exhibiting together at the Center offers a way to show original work in a shared space for all of us to celebrate.
Priscilla Roach, Gallery President at Art Works, says: Art Works is unique in that it is only comprised of artists residing in Nevada County. We are delighted to have this opportunity to partner with Nevada County Arts Council and Center for the Arts to showcase our artists in such a special setting.
Fall into Art opens on Tuesday August 30 at Center for the Arts, and an Opening Reception will be held on the evening of September 1 between 5pm and 7pm. 20 artists from Art Works Gallery will show their work at the Center under the umbrella of NCArts. Art Works itself is at the center of a vibrant visual and performing arts community, with 32 juried visual artists cooperating to present their work . whether ceramics, glass, jewelry, painting, woodturning, furniture, fiber art, metal, mosaic, mixed media, photography, or sculpture.
Yvon Dockter, a Fall into Art participating artist from Art Works, says: “Although I thoroughly enjoy being a part of a co-operative gallery, I also find it exciting to team up with the Nevada County Arts Council for this important show at the Center. And, hopefully, this bodes well for more involvement and collaboration in the future as well.”
