At Sunday’s first ArtWalk in downtown Nevada City, sponsored by artist Martin Butler’s, you can spend a leisurely day enjoying fine art at four venues just a few miles away from the heavy crowds at the fairgrounds. And there’s no admission.

The works of more than 50 artists will be displayed from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Miners Foundry Cultural Center, 325 Spring St.; Gallery II, 419 Broad St.; J.J. Jackson’s, 244 Commercial St.; and Cafe Mekka, 237 Commercial St.

The Foundry will spotlight Grass Valley Graphics Group artists, Laura Kofler, Willem DeGroot, Brook Caballero, Jake Hansard, Julie Baker Fine Art, Jenny Long, Anita Morgan, Gila Lane, Jeff Blain, MaryLou Falstreau, Kris Johnson, Betsy Lombard, Jerry Murphy, Leslie Ann Webb, Liz Lowrie, Kristina Young, Gail Toland, Ywing Ming Jyang, Vanessa Martin, Linda Thill, Richard Calkins, Mary K. Shisler, Chris Matthews and others.

More than 30 artist-members in several genres will exhibit at the cooperative Gallery II.

Barbara Michelman’s Italian photograph exhibition, “Chasing the Light,” is on display at J.J. Jackson’s.

Aram Larsen’s paintings are exhibited at Cafe Mekka.

Thirty artists will be at the Foundry to either discuss their works or demonstrate techniques. Among the bands performing throughout the day will be the Thieves Market Band, Quincy Floyd Quintet and the Paul Russell Blues Band.

E.J. Gold, co-founder of the Grass Valley Graphics Group, will teach his “You Can Paint” class at 1 and 3 p.m. for $5 plus materials. Gold has donated his services. Class proceeds go to California ArtWalk to help pay expenses.
