Holidays at LeeAnn Brook Fine Art in Nevada City

Submitted to Prospector

Join in the festivities that will be all about art this holiday season, by visiting Nevada City's unique gallery-combined studio of LeeAnn Brook Fine Art.

Celebrating its third holiday season in Nevada City at the corner of Spring and South Pine streets, the gallery will come alive with unique art for gift giving, artist demos and live music.

As the annual Wish Tree in the gallery courtyard lights up, activities begin Thanksgiving weekend through Christmas.

The popular Wish Tree is donated each year by gallery artist Mike Snegg, and is adorned with pieces of fabric where visitors can write their yearly wish.

Brook and Snegg conceived the idea three years ago when the gallery first opened, and is filled with over 100 wishes each year.

The holiday schedule is as follows:
