Reaching Out 

Grand Hand expands to our land

Out of all the cities on a map of the United States, the Grand Hand Gallery has extended its grand index finger and pointed to downtown Napa. Owner Ann Ruhr Pifer with manager Kristina Young cut the red ribbon to its new Bay Area location this year, expanding to a storefront on Main Street.

The gallery—aptly named for Pifer's affinity for authentic work that shows "the hand of the artist"—features the work of contemporary artists and craftspeople from across the country utilizing diverse media, ranging from clay, wood, glass, metal, fiber and metals. The Grand Hand has already received much praise from its hometown in St. Paul, Minn., where the gallery first opened in August 2004, deemed the "Best of the Cities" in the Midwest for the past two years.

Give the gallery a hand and check out "Drawn from Nature," a show running September to October, featuring Napa artists Patti Wessman and Maash Pascal. Enjoy the opening reception with a few sips of Tres Sabores wine on Saturday, Sept. 2, at the Grand Hand Gallery. 1136 Main St., Napa. 5–7pm. 707.253.2551.—Catherine Zaw
