Folsom Event: : “3 Women Photographers” Free Opening Reception at Gallery at 48 Natoma – March 29, 2019
Incredible wildlife and nature imagery by three women photographers are highlighted in the next exhibit at the Gallery at 48 Natoma in Folsom from March 15 to May 2, 2019. Photographers Mary Aiu, Lynne Edwards and Ruby Pacheco will bring their award-winning expertise to the display.
In the adjacent Community Gallery at 48 Natoma, paintings created by the animals from the Folsom City Zoo Sanctuary will be on display from March 8 to April 25, 2019. Trained zoo professionals provide animals such as tigers, mountain lions, deer, monkeys, rodents and birds, with non-toxic, washable paint. The animals then “paint” by using their paws, or crawl, wiggle and stamp on canvases. Their abstract paw prints, claw marks and scratchings become beautiful abstract works of art. The finished paintings will be offered for sale as a fundraiser for the Zoo programs.
The public is invited to celebrate both exhibits at the free opening reception on Friday, March 29, 2019 from 6:00 to 8:00, with refreshments, wine and live guitar music by Gabe Becker. As an added treat, we also anticipate that several smaller animal artists from the zoo (perhaps the Funk the skunk and Boss Hog the hedgehog) will be present at the reception for visitors to meet and watch him in-action painting during the reception. The painting will then be available for purchase!
The gallery is free and open to the public and art is available for purchase. Hours are Monday through Friday from 9am-5pm, with additional hours Tuesday and Wednesday evenings from 6-8pm and Second Saturdays of each month from 9am-1pm. Free tours can be arranged by appointment. For more information contact Gallery Director Cindy Abraham, (916) 461-6611, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
