GRASS VALLEY, Calif. April 22, 2019 – Artists creating small-to-medium-sized works are invited to participate in an art show and wine tasting set for 5 to 7 p.m. Friday, May 31, at Peace Lutheran Church, 828 W. Main St., near downtown Grass Valley. The deadline for applying to enter is Friday, May 3.

Works will be sold at silent auction. Artists will set the minimum price for their works and receive that amount for all works sold. Any amount bid above the minimum price will benefit the Peace Organ Fund. Peace Lutheran Church is raising money to replace its aging organ with a combination instrument that will be capable of playing real pipes, which create a uniquely stirring sound.

This event offers a spacious, beautiful and centrally located venue for artists to make their works known and available to the public. Artists are encouraged to mingle with guests to discuss their art. Artists may attend the event at a discounted cost of $10 per person. (Cost for general admission will be $20 per person.)

Smaller works will be displayed on tables. Paintings and photographs should come with a tabletop easel for setting up. Medium-sized works can be accommodated with a standing easel. No wall space is available, so larger pieces cannot be accepted.

Artists: Contact organizers by May 3

To submit a piece of art, contact Connie Berg at or (530) 432-1607 by May 3 for details. Include a photo of the item.

The event will include a tasting of fine wines, plus hors d’oeuvres, music and lively conversation. It’s part of the Arts @ PEACE series of high-quality cultural events offered to the public. Future Arts @ PEACE events include a presentation of the Tintabulations handbell choir on tour from Reno at 6 p.m. Sunday, May 19; a presentation of English organist Simon Gledhill, live in concert at 4 p.m. Sunday, June 23; Silent Movies with Walt Strony; and concerts of fine organ and piano music.
