Arts Association explores Interiorscapes

If you visit the de Young Museum in San Francisco later this month you will be able to view Van GoghÕs portrait of his ÒBedroom at Arles,Ó (1889). Starting this Friday, you can see how members of the Folsom Arts Association view room interiors.

Interiorscapes

ÒInteriorscapesÓ opens Sept. 17 at the Gallery at 48 Natoma and runs through Nov. 4. The exhibit features juried works by this talented group of artists. For the unfamiliar, ÒjuriedÓ means that an individual or group acting as the judge (or panel of judges) view submitted artworks and decide which ones will be shown. The judge or panel usually select prizewinners as well, when prizes are to be awarded.

The show will be judged by acclaimed artist Anita Wolfe.

Beauty, it is said, is in the eye of the beholder. At ÒInteriorscapes,Ó you will have the unique opportunity to view scenes of interiors through the eye of the artist, whether it is the inside of a cozy room, a beautiful flower or a look into the soul of another human being.

A variety of media will be on exhibit, including oils, watercolor, acrylics, pastels and photography.

This exhibit is one that invites the mind to contemplate the unusual. Some views may startle. Others will give comfort with the cozy feel of hearth and home. You are bound to discover some new favorites.

Also, if you find a piece that is particularly to your liking, you may just be able to take it home with you at the conclusion of the show on Nov. 4. Artwork will be available to purchase.

Floral Show

When visiting the gallery donÕt forget to check out the back hall, which is used as an additional gallery. The Folsom Arts Association will be sponsoring another exhibit there Ñ a ÒFloral ShowÓ will showcase floral art and design talent.

Gourd Festival cancelled

On another note, I regret to hear that FolsomÕs annual Gourd Festival has been cancelled. The festival always signaled the beginning of autumn in the community. I do not know why the event was cancelled but I have confirmed that this is so. I hope that organizers of the Folsom Gourd Festival are able to re-organize and sponsor a show next fall Ñ it was always such an enjoyable event.

A reception for ÒInteriorscapesÓ and the ÒFloral ShowÓ will be held this Friday, Sept. 17 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. The artistsÕ reception and the exhibit are free and open to the public.

The Gallery at 48 Natoma is located (where else?) at 48 Natoma St. in Folsom. Gallery hours are Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., with additional hours on some weeknights and Saturdays. Contact the gallery for holiday, evening and weekend hours. Special group and free school tours can be arranged by appointment. To request additional gallery information or to schedule a tour, contact Cindy Abraham, gallery coordinator, at (916) 351-3506 or cabraham@folsom.ca.us .
