The Seven Stars Gallery.
We are working hard to finish the Odd Seven Stars Gallery and Community Gathering space. Stay tuned!
Come by and check out the ODD window displays, there you can also read up on what we are making happen for our community!
What is it? An Odd Fellows offering to our community. A space for local artists to show their talents. A place where Odd Fellows, friends and community members can come to play and share together. A community gathering place, where presenters can present, where we can meet and discuss life and our community in respect and friendship to inspire and grow together. The possibilities are endless and still developing. Come join us and help us create magic. We are excited about opening this space to our community and we invite you to join the Odd Fellows to participate in this beautiful unfolding and awakening of one of the oldest buildings in Nevada City, a true gem in our community. (Broad St Building Built in 1873.) What are the Odd Fellows? Briefly we are local citizens that have joined the ancient International Order of Odd Fellows (I.O.O.F.) that is a fraternal order known for the three links of Friendship Love and Truth (FLT). The Odd Fellows is an assortment of individuals from more than one profession or walk of life. We unite with others across the boundaries of demographic or social class in order to form a far greater whole. We strive to do good works for humanity and in our local community. Yes, there is old ritual, (the Odd Fellows Order dates back to the 1700’s, perhaps far older), but it is not a secret society; it is a fraternal order with some ritual to guide us. All are welcome to apply to join and become a member. If you are interested in joining us or want more detail of reach out to us and if If you see someone inside, come in and say “HELLO!”
Our lodge decided in November 2021 to create a community oriented space (in what was the late and wonderful Odd Fellow Allan Rogers’ Picture framing shop). Located at 210 Spring St. Nevada City. The vision is fluid and a work in progress, BUT it is our goal to create a space that will be available for local artists and presenters and musicians to be able to display their work, to present their story, to play their music, and to give a presentation on just about anything! It will be a place in the heart of Nevada City that will give us an opportunity to shine, share and become a part of our community through the arts and fellowship. (lounge area included)
We have big plans for all of us!
For the Gallery, we hope to offer this as an affordable place for local artists to display their work in a professional gallery format. For musicians and spoken word performances this will be an intimate venue to shine. There will be ongoing displays of art and we will have a stage area for presentations or music performances. Are you interested in video or audio production? Dreams of a production studio are being hatched! Looking for a place to record your podcast? A place that you can video with Green screen and professional equipment? We hope to offer the ability to live stream your event whatever it may be! Stay tuned!
The Lounge aspect will be incorporated into the gallery area. A place where one can sit and relax, have some tea or maybe a glass of wine for a small donation. Or perhaps to hold a gala for your art opening! These are ideas that we hope to have up and running within the upcoming year. As a member of Odd Fellows, when the gallery is not open, it will be a members only lounge. Yes there are member benefits!
While the Odd Fellows will try to offer this space as a very affordable place for the community, we envision the need for donations or a small percentage of any sales of artwork or presentations that are given there.
For a ticketed event it would have a small rental fee or a negotiated percentage of the door to go to Odd Fellows.
These charges are necessary to cover our utility and supply expenses. We may hold a few benefits to assist in the development of our plans for the space. Think: kitchen, bar, better handicapped facilities, espresso machine, refrigerator, air filters for COVID safety. Feel free to donate to the cause! Info@NevadaCityOddFellows.Com
We are looking forward to opening the doors of this place to our community and to watch it grow and evolve as a vital and dynamic place for all of us, right in the center of town!
