For Cindy Abraham, coordinator for the Gallery at 48 Natoma in Folsom, there is an art to displaying art.
“I get all this art delivered and plopped down in the middle of the gallery, and I have to make sense of it,” she explains. “It’s like putting together a jigsaw puzzle.” Despite the difficulty involved, there is no denying that she loves her job. “I think art is one of the major unifying subjects in the world,” she enthuses. Her goal? To bring great art to the local community and make it accessible to people of all ages and backgrounds.
An avid painter, art advocate and mother of two girls, Abraham has worked hard her entire career to keep art education alive in public schools – teaching art technique and starting volunteer, hands-on art history programs in school districts throughout northern California. “It’s one of the legacies I’ve tried to offer to the communities I’ve lived in,” she says. “I don’t think it’s right for a child to grow up not having a rich cultural education.”
