FAA members’ artworks depicting the “California Highlights.” Forty-one FAA members participated in the show in the Community Gallery at the Gallery at 48 Natoma in Folsom. Sacramento artist, David Peterson, judged the entries and prizes were awarded.
I'm a Folsom-based Maker and Artist. I create interactive, functional art using a variety of electronics, lighting, motion, and sound. I use a variety of materials and use 3D printing, laser cutting, metal work, and electronics for my creations.
My most recent work - a Spaceship In A Bottle - the spaceship in this bottle is crafted of metal, acrylic, rubber, and electronics. It features a solitary astronaut, viewing a vintage CRT (cathode-ray-tube) display that cycles through several different space-themed videos. The astronaut is on a hopeful journey home, but the ship is running low on supplies, and the engines at the rear flicker like a candle as the craft's fuel dwindles.
I teach a course at the Curious Forge in Grass Valley titled "Electronics for Artists", and teach Mechatronics at Sierra College.

A Live Virtual Exhibit
An Exploration of Contrast:
The Unifying Principle
This is a live, on-going exhibit. Participation is open to all FAA members. New works added weekly.
July 1, 2020 – Inspired by a FAA member, the endeavor of this virtual exhibit is to contemplate life in all its differences and all its fundamental unity, and to transmit those thoughts and feelings to the observer. The desired end result is a positive statement of the value and inherent beauty in differences. We seek to provide an avenue for artistic voicing and for growth into a kinder, more deliberately compassionate community.
We welcome you to enjoy An Exploration of Contrast: The Unifying Principle.
Sutter Street Artists Gallery
Several FAA members show their ART at the Sutter Street Artist Gallery.
Located inside Anita Rochelle Boutique & Fine Art (formerly the Bag Lady Boutique), 627 Sutter Street in Historic Folsom.
