Local Artists, Musicians, Business Owners, and Non-Profits Unite to Celebrate Art

The First Friday Art Walk, a celebration of Nevada City’s diverse mix of galleries, retail shops, wine tasting rooms, restaurants, and creative community, kicks off Friday on June 7 at 5:00pm. Participating downtown businesses will be open from 5:00 pm to 9:00 pm and many will host receptions with local artists, trunk shows, special one night only sales and performances. Maps will be available at any one of the participating locations, or the Nevada City Chamber of Commerce.

The entire town will be alive with art, music, performance and creative engagements. Poetry Reading by The Poetry Crashers and live music featuring The Ruckrich Family Band & Fog Holler on the newly named, “Foggy Mountain Music Stage” on Commercial Street. “It’s a perfect evening out for a date night or time out and about with the family.” Says Art Walk founder Cynthia Levesque.

Sponsorships from shops, businesses and nonprofits are adding to the excitement this year. Sponsors are, but not limited to Foggy Mountain Music, KVMR, Miners Foundry, FireSafe Council, Sierra Food Wine Art, Nevada County Arts Council, and InnTown Campground.
