Schoolhouse Gallery to Host a Community Celebration of Summer August 27th
It’s magic! No snow now for two months! To commemorate this much-anticipated absence of white stuff, Sierra City’s own nationally acclaimed magician, The Great Sparacino (aka Bill the Magician), starts off the Schoolhouse Gallery’s celebration of summer with a magic show that will amaze young and old alike! The show will start at 4:00.
Refreshments will be served inside at the gallery’s artists’ reception. There will be new work by the gallery’s original artists as well as work by several artists new to the gallery. Featured new artists include Loyalton’s Leland Cross, whose paintings beautifully capture quiet, intimate glimpses of Sierra life, James Brunk, whose dramatic oil paintings depict the grandiose beauty of the Sierra, and soft, quiet pastels of cherished local scenes by Sierra City’s Sylvia Baiker.
To cap the evening off, tap your toes or cut a rug to the live music of the Petra Hallman band, starting at 5:30 pm.
The community is invited to come and enjoy all of the festivities. The gallery is situated in the historic Sierra City schoolhouse, which was built in 1868 and served to educate the area’s children until 1952. Its stunning space now serves as a showcase for the work of nationally recognized local artists, and is located at 418 Main St. in Sierra City; call 862-1161 for further information.
