Public Health Guidance
While the state of California has reopened its economy allowing almost all businesses to reopen without restrictions, the City of Folsom has restrictions for indoor public settings. Bear with us as we work through the new rules.
The Gallery at 48 Natoma has OPENED for our monthly demonstrations. We are waiting to hear from Folsom Lake College regarding art camp and workshops.
