Art Fundraiser 4 Health Clinic

Event has passed...However, if you are interested in viewing some of their photography, United Way has some on display. Email Donna at 

Local artists, Mindy Oberne and Roger Lewis, held an art fundraiser for the 2020 Grass Valley Free 2-day Health Care Clinic. They have made their living in the art world for many years and have a permanent gallery of their works on their property. Three expeditions to Antarctica, via helicopter-equipped Russian icebreakers, have created incredible images of wildlife and scenery rarely captured. “Forty years of Nevada County living have allowed us to photograph the historic local architecture and the beautiful four seasons we experience in these foothills,” said Roger Lewis. All proceeds go to the Health Clinic. To view a video of the gallery, go to   For more information about the gallery, contact Mindy and Roger at
