The Grand Hand Gallery

The Grand Hand Gallery is an award-winning gallery of fine American craft and fine art. The gallery was originally opened by Ann Ruhr Pifer in her hometown of St. Paul, MN in 2004. In 2012, The Grand Hand Gallery Napa opened on Main Street in Napa. The artwork reflects a strong sense of authenticity, showing “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.
