Live On Stage, Inc. and Folsom Lake Community Concert Association Present Masters of Motown

Masters of Motown, a fully costumed and choreographed explosion of the Motown era music, will perform at Three Stages on the campus of Folsom Lake College on Sunday, January 27, 2013 at 3:00 p.m.

After thirty years performing at private events across North America, Europe and Asia, Masters of Motown was created in 2008 as a way to heighten the experience for the fans of this genre of music. The result is a stage show capturing the sights, sounds and feel of the Motown era. The Masters of Motown performance goes beyond the music to preserve the integrity of the entire Motown experience.

Masters of Motown is the ultimate stroll down memory lane for some, and for others the show offers a way to experience a period in our country’s past that produced many of the greatest music acts ever recorded.

Live On Stage, Inc., provides excellent, affordable, entertainment attractions and support services to an American community of concert presenters.  For more information, visit

15th Annual “Sacramento Museum Day” Scheduled for Saturday, February 2

A record 30 Sacramento area museums will offer free or half-priced admission all day on Saturday, February 2, 2013, during the 15th Annual Sacramento Museum Day.

Twenty-eight of the 30 museums will offer free admission whereas two destinations located in residential areas – the Sacramento Zoo and Fairytale Town – will offer half-priced admission to offset parking control and security costs.

With assistance provided by the Sacramento Convention & Visitors Bureau, this hugely popular community event is presented by the Sacramento Association of Museums (SAM) and proudly supported by Umpqua Bank and Chipotle Mexican Grill.

Sacramento Museum Day event hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. (with the last guests admitted at 4 p.m.). Sacramento Museum Day, a popular Sacramento cultural tradition, is designed to encourage all members of the community to experience the Capital City’s incredible wealth of art, history, science and wildlife – at little or no cost. Many of the museums are within walking distance of each other and easily accessible via public transportation.

Event coordinators suggest that guests plan to visit no more than two or three different museums on this day in order to allow adequate time to enjoy the experience and to travel between individual sites. “We are thrilled to celebrate 15 years of this incredibly popular community event,” said Sacramento Association of Museums Chair Roxanne Yonn. “With each passing year, more and more community members are introduced to the amazing array of arts, culture and museum offerings available in the Sacramento region. We are especially pleased that Chipotle Mexican Grill has joined Umpqua Bank as a title sponsor this year as the support of generous corporate sponsors help to make Sacramento Museum Day such an overwhelming success.”

While admission is free at 28 of the participating museums during Sacramento Museum Day, admission to two destinations located in residential areas are half-priced as follows: Sacramento Zoo is $5.75 for adults, $3.75 for children ages 2-11 and free for children under two; Fairytale Town is $2.50 for everyone and free for children ages one and under. Due to the popularity of Sacramento Museum Day, some locations must limit the number of admissions for safety reasons.

More detailed information about participating museums, limitations, suggested parking and public transit options is available at (click on “Events”), or by calling the Sacramento Convention & Visitors Bureau at (916) 808-7777.

Gallery at 48 Natoma Art Exhibition: Cityscapes and Alleyways

Streaks of glowing head lights, blurs of blowing trees, reflections in glass windows; these artists have captured a moment in time, freezing the bustling traffic, city lights and busy streets of downtown Sacramento. 

The next exhibit at the Gallery at 48 Natoma in Folsom, Cityscapes and Alleyways, will feature oil paintings by Anthony Montanino and photography by Keith Berger. The exhibit will open on Friday, January 25 and continue through March 7, 2013.
Anthony Montanino’s paintings are in numerous public and private collections both domestic and international, including those of celebrities Madonna and Arnold Schwarzenegger. Montanino has the ability to work in different styles at the same time and has a well-earned reputation for producing stunning urban landscapes. Montanino studied with Gregory Kondos, Oliver Jackson and Jack Ogden. Among his numerous awards are the 1985-86 Robison-Witt Memorial Fellowship, the 2002 Sacramento Contemporary Arts Award and the 2009 Sacramento Fine Arts Center Award and five Awards of Excellence from the California State Fair.

“I enjoy taking photographs of the wonders of nature, both large and small, of coastal scenes and cityscapes,” says photographer Keith Berger about his work. After discovering Freeman Patterson’s works and writings, he was inspired to work on expanding his visual thinking and began a series of photographic projects focusing on abstractions and reflections that view everyday scenes and objects in new ways. He is a member of Viewpoint Photographic Art Center in downtown Sacramento and his work has been exhibited throughout California and England.

In the adjacent Community Gallery at 48 Natoma, the premier exhibition of Folsom’s new photography club, FolPho, will display their first show. This companion exhibit to the main gallery exhibit will focus on architectural photography. FolPho will be on display from January 15 to March 1, 2013.

The public is invited to celebrate both exhibits at the free opening reception on Friday, January 25, from 6:00 to 8:00 pm, with refreshments, wine and live music.

The Gallery at 48 Natoma is managed by the Folsom Parks and Recreation Department and showcases art by regional and national professional artists, area museum collections and traveling exhibitions; offering high quality original art exhibits that the community may otherwise not have an opportunity to experience.

The gallery is free and open to the public and art is available for purchase. Hours are Monday through Friday from 9-5 with additional hours Tuesday nights from 6-8p.m.  Free tours can be arranged by appointment. For more information contact Cindy Abraham, (916) 355-7285, or
