at 1591 Newborough Drive

Our next Art Show on the exterior of 1591 Newborough Dr., 95833 will celebrate International Cuisine. For this Artists Reception and Celebration we have partnered with Chalk It Up to bring the fun and festivities of Sacramento’s Premier Art Festival to Natomas.

The Natomas Garden & Arts Collective is seeking volunteer artists to donate their time and talent to help bring our community together and celebrate all the wonderful resources here in Natomas. 

We are looking for Sidewalk Chalk Artists, Mural Artists, and others who want to share their creative talents. Invite your favorite businesses to sponsor chalk art works to be done live during the festival. Contact Amie T for more information atokuhama@natomasgac.org

Community Healing Through Celebration!!
New Art at 1591 Newborough Drive

Enjoy our Spring Art Show, “My Butterfly Journey Home” up through summer at 1591 Newborough Dr. We had a wonderful May Day Celebration and Artists Reception on Sunday, May 1, 2022 at the new Gallery site. Our friends and neighbors come out to visit and share their visions and goals for the new Art & Garden Center and Gallery. Our community is as beautiful as the art we have in this show! Thanks to all who participated!

 The theme of our latest celebrates the rich diversity of our community through the metaphor of the butterfly.

NGAC is now a SMUD Shine Award Partner!! Our Ninos Pollinator Parkway project was approved for a Shine Award.

NGAC’s Ninos Community Garden Plot Project Update

NGAC maintains a 20′ x 20′ plot in the Ninos Community Garden located in South Natomas.  Club members and supporters are welcome to participate.  This is an excellent opportunity for NGAC members to learn and practice their gardening skills in a large and very sunny garden plot!!

Much of the food grown here in the club’s plot is donated every season to various local food banks. NGAC members also provide a volunteer resource for the Ninos Community Garden’s maintenance and site clean-up.

NGAC’s plot in the Ninos Community Garden has produced a bountiful summer harvest last year!  Club members planted a variety of tomatoes, squash, watermelon, beans, and peppers, along with zinnias, cosmos and bachelor buttons.  We had 5 harvests over the course of the summer, each donated to a local food bank.  See pics!.

We are gearing up to start our spring/summer garden and are looking for members to be a part of our team for the planning, planting, maintenance, and periodic harvesting of the plot. 

Please contact Nancy Kapellas at nkapellas@natomasgac.org if you are interested!
