All aboard for the next exhibit at the Gallery at 48 Natoma! The railroad has long been an important part of Folsom's history since the Gold Rush days. Now artwork that commemorates those historic connections will be displayed in the exhibit, "On the Right Track," from July 10 through August 27, 2015. Three premier railroad artists work will be featured, including impressionist oil paintings by Gary Symington, grand traditional oils on canvas by Patrick Karnahan and incredible scale model displays created by Scott Robertson.

Dodge City by Patrick Karnahan Patrick Karnahan has been oil painting since he was eight years old. In addition to painting wildlands, Karnahan has been capturing the history of the American railroads on canvas for more than 20 years. He also promotes art education for children in local schools. "It's satisfying," he says. "Usually, I'll sell my paintings and won't see them again. What I'm doing becomes part of the community." For 15 years, he worked for the USDA Forest Service as a seasonal firefighter and later as a graphic artist and public affairs specialist. His paintings, based on years of personal experience on the fire lines, are full of highly accurate detail and reflect his emotional commitment to wildland firefighting and to conserving our public wildland treasures.

Oiling the 28 by Gary Symington Gary Symington has been a full-time illustrator and graphic designer for over 40 years, but his real passion has always been painting in oils on canvas. After painting primarily landscapes for many years, his most recent work reflects his interest in trains, with particular attention paid to the quality of the surface textures and discolorations of metal on the engines. His illustration clients have included L.L. Bean, Windows magazine and McDonalds. His commercial work has been shown with the Society of Illustrators and in the Strathmore Paper Graphics Gallery. Gary received a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Painting from Syracuse University, and studied at Sir John Cass School of Art in London, England.

Town Hanging Rock by Scott Robertson Scott Robertson is an acclaimed railroad model maker and has been creating railroad scenes over a culmination of many years. His ongoing project called the ND&AC (Never Done & Always Changing) Model Railroad is On30 scale with construction that started in 2004 and is still evolving. The fictitious town of Hanging Rock is a combination of two modules (30"x48" each) depicting a mountain town somewhere in the Sierra Mountains. "My model railroad does not represent any specific prototype, and it takes its scenery from many different geographic settings in the western United States. The era is sometime in the mid-20th century in places that are being logged over and mined out." His models are truly an inspiration of both art and engineering combined.

The exhibit opens July 10
and continues through August 27, 2015
