Nevada County Visual Artist & Gallery Guide

After a successful launch in 2017, we are calling all Nevada County visual artists and galleries as we prepare our 2018-19 Nevada County Visual Artist & Gallery Guide. 

The Guide highlights Nevada County as the premier visual arts destination in the Sierra Nevada foothills and Truckee-Tahoe region. In the year to come 7,500 hard copies will be distributed to locations across Nevada County and beyond, including San Francisco, Sacramento, Chico, and Reno, with a web version and an infinite online distribution.

The Guide is reserved for new and renewing Nevada County Arts Council visual art members and features insightful editorial, inspiring art and photography, and will include a companion online edition. It is designed much like a museum directory or exhibition guide that art buyers are familiar with and that will serve to reinforce our visual arts community as "world class." It is targeted to locals and visitors alike to introduce them to your art.

In addition to artist and gallery listings, the Guide includes magazine-style articles and editorial about the local visual arts scene, the history of the arts in Nevada County, upcoming arts events, and more. The Guide has a targeted regional distribution – from Reno, to Sacramento, to Chico, to Jackson and points in between - and is restocked quarterly for a full year.
