Gallery at 48 Natoma

It’s Story Time * New Exhibit OPENS May 19, 2017 at The Gallery at 48 Natoma Street in Folsom

Opening Reception Friday, May 19 from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM with Refreshments, Wine, Live Music by Daniel Roest and Francesca Anderson

The art of surrealism often tells a story from an artists’ unconscious point of view that allows the unconscious to express itself. Surrealist works feature the element of surprise, unexpected juxtapositions and non sequitur. Artists often use their own dreams as a source of inspiration to tell their stories in their surrealist art work.

Two acclaimed surrealist artists will be featured in the next art exhibit at the Gallery at 48 Natoma in Folsom. “It’s Story Time,” will present paintings and prints by Susan Silvester and digital images by Vincent Di Leo May 19 through July 6, 2017.

Gallery Hours: Mon-Fri, 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM and Tue-Wed evenings, 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM
Call for weekend hours 916-355-7285
