After ice-cream we decided to take a walk down Franklin Boulevard. I have no idea if this street holds any significance to anyone, but for us, it was the next stop from Gunther’s. The street wasn’t too busy. We found ourselves in a part-neighborhood, part-urban area with cats in every yard. A boxer stared longingly from his living room window sporting the cone of shame…poor dog.
Walking by an empty lot, Ammon spotted a rainbow painted sedan, and right above the back tire read “Old City Studio.com”. We continued walking and ran right into an “Old City” sign, and suddenly, the Old City Art Gallery, what luck!
We’d arrived in the middle of the set-up for last Saturday’s Natomas Charter High School show. The owner was super nice and let us walk around while they continued to set-up. The art was great. I didn’t take any photos, because I was worried about artist permission, but I should have just asked, I bet they would have said yes.
It was a neat little gallery, the owner said they have a free show every second Saturday. Totally want to check it out in June. The Old City Gallery facebook page says the 2nd Saturday shows last from 5:30-10pm and they include live music! Yep, I’m definitely putting this one on my calendar.
It’s always fun to find a gem like the Old City Art Gallery; and to think if we hadn’t walked down Franklin that night. If you have any leads or ideas on other cool places to visit in Sacramento totally leave a comment!
