Owners of the building, Bibi Green and Jeff Champlin, have been very generous offering the space to the Arts Council with the hopes that the Yuba Gallery will contribute to the cultural and economic vitality of our community. We appreciate that they are letting us have the space again for the coming tourist season. The Arts Council hopes to someday return their generosity by becoming a successful self-supporting enterprise for the benefit of our entire community. The Arts Council would like to thank Bibi and Jeff for this opportunity. We also appreciate the enthusiastic support we have received from everyone this past year.
