Paintings of aerial views of Grass Valley and Nevada City by local fine art oil painter Rick Morrall will be on display at Szabo Vineyards Wine Tasting Room.

The show, “Gems of the Sierra,” will have an opening reception at 5 p.m. June 10 at the wine tasting room at 316 Broad St., Nevada City.

Morrall based the paintings on satellite images of Nevada County’s historic twin cities. Though the streets are for the most part accurately laid out, and many of the buildings are identifiable, Morrall said he took license in the use of color to accent the patterns and textures as seen from above. The two just-completed works will be added to the continuously changing display of Morrall’s oil paintings at the winery, which is open afternoons and evenings Thursdays through Sundays.

Call 530-265-8792 for exact hours.
