Artist reception at Avanguardia

After creating an exact likeness to a client’s loved one, artist Katie Wolff stretches her mind and body by playing with paint in all its glorious vibrant colors and textures. Her use of color most often brings the viewer a feeling of joy, as do her portraits.

Starting Thursday (March 28), Katie will be the featured artist at the Avanguardia Tasting room, 209 Main St. in Grass Valley, open daily from noon to 5 p.m. An artist reception will be from 4 to 6 p.m. Saturday. The public is invited to see the work of this versatile artist.

Her work can also be seen daily at the Art Works Gallery, 113 Mill St., in Grass Valley, along with 35 other local artisans. She’s the one wearing the hat. For more about her work, visit
