ten472 is a contemporary art space located in Northern California. The permanent exhibition space is in Grass Valley and occupies the second floor of a restored 1940's building in the downtown area. The gallery features a large, light-filled open floor plan with dramatic 20 foot ceilings.
Since its inception in 2000, ten472 has focused on identifying and exhibiting artists who present a contemporary vision to the traditional art forms and who have a unique approach to process, medium, technique and content. Their program is focused on representing a limited number of core artists, both regional and national, with an emphasis on sculpture. This focus allows them to dedicate their efforts on expanding their profiles by actively participating in national art fairs, by featuring rotating exhibitions and by providing private and corporate art consulting services and public art placement. The artists work across a diverse spectrum of genres; from abstraction to realism, conceptually oriented work to kinetic folk, and from intimate sized sculpture to large-scale public works. The common link is the gallery's unique relationship with each artist and their dedication to making work that is compelling in composition, technique and materials.
