Saturday will be an event-filled day at Art Works Gallery.

Continuing with their monthly Second Saturday Spotlight Series, two artists will be demonstrating their art forms from 1-4 p.m. Saturday.

Mixed media artist Liz Collins will show her particular method of working with oil pastels. She will work on a piece from start to finish, showing some specific techniques she uses in her work. 

Collins worked with this medium for about 15 years, and then veered off into mixed media for about 10 more. Now she is back working with oil pastel in a new way, and loves the ease and familiarity with the medium.

Silk artist and weaver Kris Johnson will bring her loom and work on weaving her colorful scarves.

Something new

There have been a few changes in the gallery over the last few months, and this deserves a celebration. From 4-7 p.m. Saturday come meet the new artists who have joined our gallery family.

The new artists include painter Jerianne Van Dijk, jeweler Pam Klein, mixed media artist Marylou Falstreau, glass artist Janice Anderson, and jeweler Melodie Yun. Come meet and mingle with many of our gallery members during our New Artist Reception.

Saturday will also be the kickoff for their yearly fundraiser for the Food Bank of Nevada County. For the fundraiser the artists donate pieces of their work to be given away during a prize drawing which will happen at our Open House Holiday Party in December.

Tickets that get attendees the chance to win amazing works of art will be sold starting Saturday up to the Dec. 1 Open House.
