Support the arts in western Nevada County!
Unique works by local artists can be yours! More than 50 small and medium-sized pieces created by 30 local artists will be sold at auction during this event near downtown Grass Valley.
Enjoy this beautiful venue to peruse unusual art, mingle with creators, nibble hors d’oeuvres, listen to lively music and sip fine wine. The event will include music by pianist Thomas Greathouse, and lively conversation provided by all. General admission costs $20 per person.
Works will be sold at silent auction. Artists will set the minimum price for their works and receive that amount for all works sold.
Your purchases also support great local music. Any sale price higher than the minimum bid will benefit the PEACE Organ Fund, helping PEACE Lutheran Church replace its aging organ. The church plans to buy an instrument capable of using real pipes, which create a uniquely stirring sound. The church’s organ, in the sanctuary, is used for secular performances by community groups.
This Art Show & Wine Tasting is part of the Arts @ PEACE series of high-quality cultural events offered to the public.
Art Show Funds raised will keep great music at Peace!
The church is raising money to replace its aging organ with a combination instrument that will be capable of playing real pipes. This instrument will reside in our Sanctuary and be available to community groups using that space. That includes Music in the Mountains, our community’s national-quality program of instrumental and choral music and musical education.
Great music is a great tradition in the Lutheran Church worldwide. Fun fact: Johann Sebastian Bach was a Lutheran who composed for his local church!
At PEACE, we continue that heritage with gratitude, giving glory to God for the emotion and spirituality of music in its many forms. We hope you would come to more events produced by Arts @ PEACE.
And, you’ll also hear moving music during our Sunday worship services. We would love for you to check them out — at 10 a.m. on the First Sunday each month, and at 8:30 & 11 a.m. most other Sundays.
