Folsom Arts Achievement Award for 2013 * Lori AndersonThe Folsom Arts Association is proud to announce that Lori Anderson will receive the Folsom Arts Achievement Award for 2013. The award, presented by the Folsom Arts and Cultural Commission, honors an organization or individual who goes above and beyond promoting arts and culture in our community. Lori exemplifies such a person with her enthusiasm and “can do” spirit.

Lori has consistently promoted Folsom Arts Association and art in general since she became active in the association several years ago. She tirelessly worked on Folsom Art Association’s behalf by serving as president, vice president and coordinator of artist demonstrators at monthly membership meetings. Lori is responsible for securing the Bank of America Gallery at Folsom Lake College for our annual membership shows as well as planning the receptions. In addition, she has coordinated two bus trips to major San Francisco museums, planning every detail for the enjoyment of the participants. She also volunteered at the after school art program at Theodore Judah School for three years. Lori can also be found at the art receptions at the Gallery at 48 Natoma, cheerfully pouring wine for the guests and extolling the virtues of art and Folsom Art Association.

We are thrilled to honor Lori for her many contributions to the arts and look forward to the formal presentation on November 14, 2013, 6:30 p.m., in the Folsom City Council Chambers. All members, friends and family are encouraged to attend.

Congratulations Lori!!
