New art venue attracts crowds

It was standing room only at Grass Valley’s Studio 131 debut performance-art presentation “Naked and Embedded” Aug. 19 and Aug. 20.

Founder Barbara Michelman was just as appreciative of the large crowds at the previous week’s opening of the visual art/sound installation “X-Posed … What turns the sacred profane?”

“This kind of turnout speaks loud and clear to the fact that the arts are alive and well and living in Nevada County,” Michelman said.

“This community has something unique to contribute … a collaborative arts movement is afoot.”

The evolving “X-Posed” installation will be up through Nov. 14.

Viewing hours are 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Thursdays through Saturdays, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sundays and other hours by appointment.
