Phaneros Art Gallery Grand Opening | Nevada City, CA

A woman dressed in black looks at a colorful, trippy painting at the grand opening of Phaneros Art Gallery.


Last weekend Maurice and I had the pleasure of photographing the gallery grand opening for Phaneros Art at their new location at 103 Argall Way in Nevada City, CA. It was fun watching people just be completely blown away by the art.

A full gallery of the images we took this night can be seen HERE.

Current art on display by the following artists (and others!)

Below is a detail shot of Seth McMahon’s newest piece. Maurice and I stood in front of it for 10 minutes, pointing out our favorite details and new discoveries – “Oh! I just noticed THIS part!” and we could return to it (and will) to discover even more.

There were people flowing in and out all night and several hours when the gallery was just packed full of people enjoying the art and crystal shop.

The gallery is connected to Crystal Junction and together they make a really beautiful open art space.

Little boo checking out the collection of quartz crystals.


Happy, content, and in awe…


Just like whenever we go out in Nevada City, we were in awe of all the families with kids roaming about the event.


I loved the way this father took his children around to soak in each piece of art.

After I took this photo, the gentleman on the left told me that he just took his first selfie. What a moment for me to capture (;
