New art, creative gallery opening in downtown Truckee

Staff report

TRUCKEE, Calif. — Atelier, a business that aims to celebrate tactile living, is scheduled to open Friday, March 6, in downtown Truckee.

Brian Hess and Heather River, owners of Bespoke Truckee, will open the new retail and workshop space just two doors down from their flagship store.

“We are so excited to bring this workshop space to our community to unite like-minded individuals and foster creativity in our town,” said Hess.

Atelier kicks off the weekend on First Friday with textile designer Casey Sibley of Reno teaching fabric printing, and Melanie Abrantes of San Francisco teaching traditional Japanese Spoon Carving.

The gallery will feature University of Nevada, Reno, professor Eunkang Koh’s “Humanimal Farm” — as shown in more than 30 countries.

Registration for both free and paid workshops offered at Atelier is required. Visit for information.
