The Grand Hand Gallery

619 Grand Avenue
Saint Paul, MN 55102


About Us:

The Grand Hand Gallery was opened in August, 2004 in St. Paul, MN by owner Ann Ruhr Pifer based on her love of fine American craft. The gallery’s second location opened in June, 2012 in Napa, CA.  The artwork featured in the gallery reflects Ann’s 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.

The gallery carries the work of artists and craftspeople from across the country, with a particular emphasis on those from the Upper Midwest and Northern California, and offers a wide variety of media, including clay, wood, glass, metal, fiber and jewelry. Approximately six times per year, the gallery highlights the work of two or more artists in a special exhibition. All of the work in these shows is for sale in the gallery. In addition to online shopping, we welcome inquiries regarding the work of the gallery artists, and can send photos and prices via e-mail upon request. We ship items anywhere in the continental U.S. and offer gift-wrapping, corporate services and on-site consultations.
