The Artist Studio in the Foothills’ sixth annual Smallworks in the Foothills Holiday show is currently up. The annual event features hundreds of original, one-of-a-kind works of art by more than 74 local artists — paintings, drawings, prints, photographs, mixed-media art, jewelry, wood, glass and sculptural and functional works of art, all under 12 inches in scale.

This is the largest small works show the gallery has had, said owner and director Amanda Paoletti.

Unlike most of ASiF’s gallery shows, artists works are not grouped together, instead they’re peppered into the mix, like unique one-of-a-kind “art tiles” in a collaborative mosaic, creating a kind of treasure hunt for fans of particular artists as they search to find each of their favorite artists’ works, Paoletti said.

The walls themselves also are an ever-changing canvas, since works are continually sold “off the wall,” during the course of the 50-day exhibit. Unlike most of the center’s gallery shows, where sold pieces are left on display until the close of the show, customers are encouraged to take their purchases right away, Paoletti said.

“The fun thing about this is that each time a piece is sold, a new piece is brought out to replace it, as new artists and artworks are accepted throughout the course of the show, making it an ever-changing exhibit,” she said.

“Last year, the center sold and replaced so much work that a completely different show was in place just one month after its opening!”

The Artists’ Studio in the Foothills is located at 940 Idaho-Maryland Road in Grass Valley.
