5 artists to exhibit works in photography studio

Five artists will exhibit their work from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 14-15, at photographer Donald Satterlee’s photography studio at 2998 Franklin Blvd. during the first weekend of Sacramento Open Studios.

Joining studio host Satterlee will be ceramic artists Julie Clements and Sandy Fong Whetstone, watercolorist Michael Dunlavey, and painter Jill Estroff.

Curtis Park neighbors were treated to a look inside the building during last year’s Sacramento Open Studios when Satterlee and three local artists displayed their works.

In 2007, Satterlee and his partners transformed the building at Franklin Boulevard and Fifth Avenue into a photography studio. It had previously housed a heating and air conditioning business and a switchboard center. A gas station occupied the site at one time.

Weather permitting, an outdoor tent on the shady patio will augment the indoor studio space for a larger display of artwork.

The artists enjoy showing in local galleries but all relish the idea of displaying art closer to home for friends and neighbors to view their work in an intimate setting.

A preview of the artwork may be found at the artists’ websites at right:
