Community of Creativity: Spotlight on Arts Associations

Style Magazine – August 2022 – “You don’t have to travel to New York or Paris—or even San Francisco—to find spectacular art. The suburbs of Sacramento are home to an array of talented artists who work in every medium, from watercolor and oils to jewelry and photography. Several local arts associations support these artists, not only helping them perfect their crafts but also bringing art experiences to the public. Here’s what’s happening at four arts associations in our area.”

Thank you Style Magazine!! Read the article
