Jeannie Vodden

Outside the downtown grid, there are many galleries seeded throughout the near-to-immediate area. 48 Natoma is one such place both the casual artgoer and full-time enthusiast should visit. This Folsom-based venue showcases some of the best artists from towns not so far away. The Flights of Fancy exhibition is certainly no exception to the rule and will host work by Jackson-based artist Jeannie Vodden. “Rather than realism, the theme, Flights of Fancy, has allowed me to fool around with the make-believe visions that dance in my head,” said Vodden in a press release. What’s more, she only uses a small sample of the color spectrum (usually three staining colors on most of her pieces). Besides being a lecturer and teacher, she is also known to give colorful demonstrations. Also on the ticket is Sacramento’s own Judi Stickney who uses carving stones with great effect. “My style incorporates balance and motion with fluidity from one perspective to another so that predictability of other views is challenged. As I create each carving, I seek to produce pleasant, soul-inspiring responses within the viewer,” Stickney said of her art. The gallery is located at 48 Natoma Street in Folsom and is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m.–5 p.m. There are also Tuesday and Wednesday limited evening hours from 6–8 p.m. No cover charge.
