“Teaching Art Inside” Exhibit at Gallery at 48 Natoma – November 9, 2017 to January 16, 2018
Featuring Artwork from the Arts-In-Corrections Program at the California State Prison
When visitors first think of Folsom, often images of the famous prison and Johnny Cash’s hit song Folsom Prison Blues come to mind. The City of Folsom and the California State Prison have had a long-standing relationship ever since Johnny Cash’s famous concert at the prison in 1968.
With the 50th Anniversary of Cash’s concert this January, the Gallery at 48 Natoma (which is located in the Folsom Civic Center, just neighboring the prison) is featuring a very special exhibit beginning November 17, 2017. “Teaching Art Inside” will feature paintings and prints by former correctional art instructor James Carlson and artwork by incarcerated artists from the Arts-In-Corrections Program at the California State Prison, Sacramento (New Folsom Prison). A special bonus display will include a selection of Johnny Cash memorabilia from the John R. Cash Revocable Trust in the exhibit. The exhibit will be open to the public through January 18, 2018.
In the adjacent Community Gallery at 48 Natoma, over 100 photographs in the 11th Annual Folsom Focus Photography Contest, sponsored by the Folsom Arts Association, will be on display from November 9, 2017 to January 16, 2018.
Gallery hours are Mondays through Fridays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Tuesday and Wednesday evenings from 6-8 p.m. facebook.com/ thegalleryat48natomaVisit Event Website for More Info
