The Artists’ Studio in the Foothills will host its annual Holiday Open House and Trunk Show today in Grass Valley.

The event boasts art for sale, interactive activities for all ages, food, drink and more.

The day will be filled with demonstrations by fine art jewelry makers, painters, sculptors, potters and more. ASiF teachers will offer fun art gift-making activities for the entire family.

Hot spiced cider and treats will be served throughout the day, and the gallery will feature its ever-changing Smallworks in the Foothills Holiday Show.

This year, ASiF has invited a group of fine art jewelry artists to bring their treasure chests of jewels for an incredible art jewelry exhibit and sale, said owner/director Amanda Paoletti.

Featured fine art jewelry artists Cabrina Channing, Jessica Hall, Suzanne Himmler, Karen Olsen-Ramsey and Aquila Stanley will exhibit their newest creations and set up shop for the day to demonstrate some fascinating jewelry-making techniques.

ASiF’s resident studios and three community classrooms will feature demonstrations in painting, drawing, printmaking, sculpture, pottery, mosaics and more.

Interactive art gift-making activities will include ceramic ornament making, hand-printed paper garland and ornaments, gift card/giftwrap-making and more.

The Smallworks in the Foothills Holiday show will be ongoing during the open house.

The walls are filled with hundreds of original artworks and have already changed into an entirely new show since it originally opened in November.

The ASiF Holiday Open House and Trunk Show is from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. today.

ASiF Visual Arts Center of Nevada County is located at 940 Idaho-Maryland Road in Grass Valley.
