We are excited to announce an excellent opportunity for our members: The 2024 Fall Folsom Arts Association Members’ Show at The Gallery at 48 Natoma from August 22 to November 1, 2024. This year’s show will be judged by Patris Miller.

This show is open to all current FAA members. The theme for this show is “Water Works” to coincide with the exhibit in the Main Gallery entitled “Tide Pools” (so think oceanscapes, lakes, rivers, rain, puddles, drops – anything with water as a theme). While members many opt to submit work unrelated to the theme, adherence to theme will be among the factors considered by the judge. Members may choose one 2d or one 3d piece that best exemplifies the work that you do and fits the framing and size requirements outlined below. Work may be offered for sale, with the Gallery at 48 Natoma retaining 30% of the selling price. The City of Folsom Parks and Recreation Department will handle all sales of artwork. Work that is not for sale should be entered as Not for Sale (NFS). The annual Glass Pumpkin Patch will be held on the grounds of the Gallery at 48 Natoma October 12 and 13, which means lots of extra visitors to the Gallery at 48 Natoma that weekend!

Artists’ Reception will be held on Friday, September 6, from 6 to 8 p.m. The reception is open to the public and awards will be presented at the reception.
