After 3 years of operating one of the first artist-owned galleries with an on-site studio in downtown Nevada City, LeeAnn Brook Fine Art has relocated to a new space at 231 Broad St. that is double the size. The gallery held a Grand Opening on last weekend’s First Friday Artwalk in Nevada City, where the Nevada City Chamber of Commerce held a Ribbon Cutting to add to the celebration.
The gallery’s current show is called “Origins”, which features mixed media paintings by Brook that were inspired by the Southwest, new large scale sculpted wood vessels and slab tables by Mike Snegg, and original watercolors of California architectural details and landscapes by Richard Swayze. The gallery also features handcrafted furniture, ceramics, cards, books, giclees and Japanese antiques in a curated setting. Brook’s working studio is in the back of the gallery where visitors can see works in progress. Part of the studio in the historic brick building also features six skylights, creating perfect lighting for clients to view select pieces of art.
The gallery is open daily, 12-5 p.m., and Saturdays and Sundays, 11-6 p.m. For more information visit www.leeannbrookfineart.com/gallery.
