Grand Hand Gallery

The Grand Hand Gallery was opened in August, 2004 by owner Ann Ruhr Pifer as the Twin Cities premier gallery of fine American craft. The gallery carries the work of artists and craftspeople from across the country, with a particular emphasis on those from the Upper Midwest. The gallery represents artists in a wide variety of media, including clay, wood, glass, metal, fiber and jewelry. Pifer opened the gallery on the basis of her love for high quality fine craft. The artwork featured in the gallery reflects her particular 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.
