The 2015 Fall Colors Open Studios begins this weekend, covering almost 50 venues and more than 70 artists all over Nevada County.

That said, the Artists’ Studio in the Foothills, 940 Idaho Maryland Road, Grass Valley covers more than 20 resident artists and is a good first stop in the tour.

“The center is an official tour guide map station, so will have stacks of guides waiting for you,” said spokesperson Amanda Paoletti. “Also, it houses the largest number of artists at a single location on the tour.”

She said the studio art center will offer individual demonstrations representing the huge range of media practiced at the center — drawing, painting, printmaking, encaustics and mixed media, sculpture, mosaics, ceramics, wheel throwing, metal arts and jewelry fabrication and more.

At ASiF, which opened its doors in 2008, the artists’ private studio spaces are set up as combined work and display areas, each of which open to the center’s spacious gallery.

“The center provides state-of-the-art facilities and offers professional art instruction, private and shared studio space, classrooms for instruction in a variety of media and a beautiful light-filled gallery,” Paoletti said.

ASiF resident artists include: Yvon Bartlett, Eileen Blodgett, Odette Brush, Cabrina Channing, Jennifer Rain Crosby, Cheri Guerrette, Sharon Griffiths, Barbara Harris, Karel Hendee, Sally Herring, Betsy Hufnage, Claudia Jeffers, Betsey Leach, Jill Mahanna, Susan Michalski, Amanda Paoletti, Jean Patterson, Lin Schiffner, Cathy Tardif, Carol Twombly, Glenna Veater, Denise Wey.
