Artful-Blend Gallery in the historic city of Roseville includes fine art paintings, sculpture, ceramics, glass and even crafted jewelry gathered under one roof and the skillful eye of owner Deidre Trudeau. The vivacious and talented artist/owner collects unique pieces not seen elsewhere.

What makes her gallery so special? Perhaps it's Trudeau's keen sense for arrangement of color and space seen in her acrylic painting, Crevasse, which draws you in, much like the gallery entices you to enter. Anything but shy, the savvy marketing executive and artist sets convention aside in favor of exploration as she places a subtle landscape painting of pastel hues next to a  modern art piece so bright it almost vibrates. In this studio space she opened as her second venture in downtown Roseville, Trudeau displays a variety of fine art paintings next to ceramic creations in a manner that awakens the senses. On special occasions such as the wine and art tours she's helped organize, guests are poured samples of locally crafted wines to round out the experience conceptualized in the naming of the business, Artful-Blend.

 

Growing from a studio, Artful i, located in a house, to a 2-story loft space near Vernon Street in the heart of Old-Town Roseville shopping district, Trudeau has injected energy and enthusiasm into the Renaissance movement this Northern California city enjoys as it embraces its historic treasures, tying them to arts and culture. She helps promote special events such as the Autumn Art Studios Tour in which visitors can sample wines at local wineries located in the beautiful Sierra Nevada foothills as they look over the shoulders of working artists.

 

Throughout the year Trudeau features artist exhibits in her gallery and invites the public to meet local and national talent. The former marketing executive with a creative spark and passion for art, shares a vision to help revitalize Roseville's older downtown area through outreach such as the gallery's rotating exhibits, special events, classes and programs attracting locals and visitors to experience Old-Town. Trudeau offers art clinics and classes in her gallery on a regular basis and participates in the Placer Valley Third Saturday Art Tour, an art walk that includes galleries and studios in historic and newer sections of Roseville.

Started several years ago, Third Saturday Art Walk has grown to include galleries from Roseville to Lincoln and Loomis. Held once a year, the Autumn Art Studios Tour presents more than 90 artists at work in their studios over a three-day period, from Roseville to Colfax.
