This Weekend: Art, Art and more Art!!


Breakthrough, 48" x 66", by Micah Crandall-Bear

If there is one thing that Sacramento has in abundance, it is a thriving art community. Artists from all over  California and beyond, have found Sacramento a place that is quite supportive of their passion. There are ample opportunities and venues to show what they do to a population that has great appreciation. There are affordable places to find studio space. And there is a large community of like-minded souls who encourage  and promote each other.

I think that an interior is never complete without great art. I encourage my clients to look at art, find out about the artists and see what speaks or appeals to them.....
