Antiques co-op includes art studio

At 316 Broad St., John Wibberley has opened Brothers Antiques, an antiques co-op housing 10 antique dealers plus an art studio.

Wibberley’s antiques co-op on Broad Street is his second location. He owns Brothers Antiques, a co-op on 203 W. Main St. in Grass Valley, that opened in May 2001.

Wibberley will have antique art, pottery, glass and paintings by his great uncle Rudolph Schmidt at the new location. Ten antique dealers will rent space at the 1,000-square-foot Broad Street space which Wibberley, 45, expects will appeal to locals and tourists.

He will also add a studio for his bicycle artwork at the Broad Street location, which opened Feb. 1.

A bicycle print Wibberley created in 1972 became a hit poster for the Tour of Nevada City bicycle race in 1983. Now he has an international clientele for the art.
