Arts festival celebrates 25 years

Fifty juried artists, tops in their class, are exhibiting on Mill Street in downtown Grass Valley on Sunday, May 27. It’s the annual Sierra Festival of the Arts, and this is its 25th anniversary.

Some of the media represented are watercolors, oils, sculpture, glass, pottery, clothing, jewelry, wood, photography and printmaking. The artists are local and regional.

Entertainment includes the Nutboys with Tom McDonald and Steve Holland, the Bedouin Dancers and storytellers Steve Sanfield and Utah Phillips.

Folks will also be able to taste their way through the many culinary offerings, definitely another form of art.

“This is a great ‘feel good’ type of day and a milestone at that,” said Grass Valley Downtown Association Executive Director Howard Levine. Call him at (530) 272-8315 for more information. Also, e-mail Carol Herschleb at

The 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. event is free.
