In the beginning, the "idea" was to have a proper show place for art. Art clubs and organizations were having a hard time finding venues for shows. Marj Long, who was the president of WASH, called the people from many art clubs together. They all met in 1985. They found the La Sierra Community Center. In December 1985, in the cold, they worked long and hard and cleaned and painted the Center. In 1986, it opened. SFAC was formed as the umbrella organization over affiliated art clubs. Current clubs are NCA, Northern California Arts, Inc.; WASH, Watercolor Artists of Sacramento Horizons; Photography Club and Fiber Arts Group. Each club has its own regulations, goals and member benefits.
Our Arts Center is funded by memberships, exhibit entry fees, studio rental to art teachers, gallery rental, art and gift shop sale and donations. Additional funding is needed for: upgraded Computer systems, membership and volunteer software, increased staff hours, increased funds for advertising and outreach, funds to continue our partnership with local schools and non-profits and unrestricted funds to meet budget shortfalls.
Our top needs:
  1. Funding: Unrestricted - Unrestricted funds to meet budget short falls
  2. Technology - Upgraded computer systems.
  3. Funding: Other - Increased staff hours included a CEO
  4. Funding: Other - Advertising and outreach.
  5. Funding: Program - Continue growing our youth programs.
