Last year the artists at Art Works Gallery decided to celebrate their 10th anniversary with a community fundraiser benefiting the youth arts programs at The Center for the Arts. The plan had to be put on hold due to the pandemic but now is back on track.


WHO: Art Works Gallery 2nd Saturday Spotlight, special event

WHAT: Community Art fundraiser to support youth arts programs at The Center for the Arts

WHEN: Saturday, April 10 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

WHERE: 113 Mill Street, Grass Valley

WHY: To raise money for the Center for the Arts Youth Arts Program


Kick-off is Saturday, April 10, during the downtown Second Saturday art walk in Grass Valley. Stop by the gallery and pick up blank 10 x 10 inch art canvases (for a small donation to the Arts Program), and return your completed canvases to the gallery by May 25. Have fun creating — use any media you like, as long as it fits on the canvas. The work will then be featured in the window and for sale with all profits going to The Youth Arts programs at The Center for the Arts.
