About the Gallery

The Gallery at 48 Natoma brings high quality, original art exhibits to our community. The City of Folsom opened the gallery in June 2007. There are two exhibition spaces: the main Gallery at 48 Natoma that features work by professional regional and national artists, and the Community Gallery that showcases the work of local emerging artists, students, and regional arts organizations. Most of the art on display is available for sale; admission to the gallery is free.

“This gallery is featuring artists of great caliber, and is building a reputation for itself in Northern California." Susan Laird, Village Life Newspaper

"This show rivals recent showings of California art at the Crocker Art Museum in Sacramento, and future exhibits promise to be of additional cultural significance. Folsom’s little free, community art gallery is absolutely worth taking the time to visit." Village Life Newspaper
