Folsom Arts Association is excited to announce that our next Members Show will be held at the recently re-opened **Community Gallery at 48 Natoma in Folsom. The theme for the show, ‘It’s an Abstract World’, is challenging FAA member artists to break away from the restrictions of this COVID year, and explore the joys of artistic freedom — whether via ‘abstraction’ or through a ‘looser’ rendering of their art.

Hopefully the show will open for in-person viewing in the Gallery, in accordance with safety parameters established by the City of Folsom. The show may also be viewed online starting January 22, 2021.

** November 13, 2020: the City of Folsom announced that Sacramento County has returned to the most restrictive COVID-19 status. The Gallery at 48 Natoma is closed and private tours are unavailable until further notice. The members show may or may not be in-person depending on Folsom’s vacillating Covid status.  We will keep you posted.

Please note that regardless, we will have the online portion of members show.
