  • **May 15: Members Show at Harris Center for the Arts

**At this time, the May Members Show at the Harris Center for the Arts is pending. Should this be cancelled, you will be notified and we issued a full refund. As an alternative to the show, we are exploring the possibility of having the show on-line !

As the situation with the coronavirus is changing daily, we will continue to update you on any further impacts to our schedule of activities and events. Updates will be posted on the FAA website at  folsomarts.org. Information will also be sent via a newsletter.
ON THE POSITIVE SIDE

As artists, many of us work in home studios and now is the perfect time to focus on creating new works and increasing our productivity.

Although we can’t currently go to museums, here is a link to virtual tours of 12 museums that you might find inspiring and useful to reduce cabin fever.
And, Paris Musées announced that it is now offering 150,000 digital reproductions of artworks in the city’s museums as Open Access — free of charge and without restrictions — via its Collections portal. Enjoy!

If you’d like to share your ideas of things to do while maintaining social distancing or share an image or two of what you've been working on, please send your information to folsomartists@gmail.com . As time permits, we will post the ideas and images on the website .

Thank you for your continued support during these difficult times.

Stay Healthy and Stay Creative!
