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.”

Ladies Valley Landback
Help Wanted and Call for Art Auction Items
American River Conservancy (ARC) is partnering with Cosumnes Culture and Waterways (CCAWW) on a fundraising event called the Ladies Valley Landback. ARC aims to give the Ladies Valley property to our local Native American community along with $25,000 in startup funding.
For the event, they are collecting nature-inspired art auction items. They are also looking for volunteers to help now and during the event.
