With its main location in St. Paul and an “annex” in the Napa Valley Museum in Yountville, Calif., the Grand Hand Gallery specializes in American crafts and fine art by artists from across the U.S., with a particular focus on artists from Minnesota. The artwork featured in the gallery reflects owner Ann Ruhr Pifer’s affinity for work that conveys a strong sense of authenticity that shows “the hand of the artist” at work: the processes used to create each piece, and frequently the influence of the particular time or place in which the artist was working.
