Homegrown version of ‘Trading Spaces’ ends with celebrations

A real life “Trading Spaces” has just transpired in Nevada City, said Shannon Perry, owner of Exposure Gallery. Her gallery moved from Broad to Commercial Street, exchanging places with three businesses owned by Dix Sullivan and Jick Icasiano: Golden Flower Trading Company, Keeping Still Mountain Tea Shop and Gold Mountain Asian Import and Antiques, which have now merged under one business, Gold Mountain.

To celebrate, both locations are hosting open houses on July 13 from 5-9 p.m. – at Exposure, 313 Commercial St. (across from Sopa Thai Cuisine) and at Gold Mountain, 312 Broad St.

“The new gallery space has a soul,” said Perry, “and that soul is a very graphic and photographic, one with an epic dose of drama. Inside you’ll discover photographic relics of the past, both salvaged and donated, like the gigantic bellows off of an old print frame camera that has been converted into a lamp.

“This space has a very intimate, urban chic feel and is very unique and more interesting architecturally.”

Besides featuring her black-and-white and color photography, Perry also offers in-house digital services, which include scanning and archiving slides, photos, transparencies or flat artwork in addition to one of Perry’s most requested services, individual private photography and photo management instruction. Call Exposure at (530) 265-4342 or visit http://www.exposuregallerync.com.

At Gold Mountain, one may purchase antiques, jewelry, Asian clothes and statues and tea-making paraphernalia and drink exotic teas from all over the world. Call (530) 265-6686 for more information.
