The mission of Set A Fire is to bring a greater community together in worship, prayer and praise. Set A Fire is not under the umbrella of a specific church or group, but seeks to create a neutral environment of all ages for the purpose of a worship experience. It is a setting where Christians can come and praise God and those that do not have that relationship with God, can experience something that will open their hearts to an understanding of a God that desires a relationship with them.

• Through March 12: Gallery at Natoma presents ARTful Women: Six Voices in Cloth, an exhibit that features the contemporary fiber art work by Pam Berry, Joan Dyer, Ann Sanderson, Lin Schiffner, Gail Sims and Sandra Poteet. It’s not just a scrap of fabric. Artists that work in contemporary textiles frequently go so much farther than typical of other art forms. Where drawing and painting are often the finished product in other media, that is just where a fiber artist begins. Using original designs the artists are frequently manipulating the material, dyeing, printing, painting, cutting, stitching, embroidering, embellishing, and then sewing pieces together into intricate patterns. Often only to cut it all apart again and re-stitch it several more times. When color, texture and design come together in this way, one can only admire the artistry involved. In the adjacent Community Gallery, a creative display of children’s art from the Brighton Elementary Private School will feature work from students in the second through fifth grades. The children will display interpretations of various cloth and appliqué motifs done as works on paper.
• March 13 through May 10: Check out Folsom Lake College students’ unique and beautiful art at the student art show in the Bank of America Gallery inside Harris Center for the Arts.

• Through April 26: Toulouse-Lautrec and La Vie Moderne: Paris 1880–1910 — Between 1880 and 1910, Paris was a breeding ground for artistic and literary movements that came to define a shifting, complex society. The art of Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec (1864–1901) epitomized the new tendencies. With his art as a central focus, this exhibition investigates a generation of artists who sought to shake the constraints of French Academic standards. A special focus is the intoxicating gathering of artists, writers, performers, and musicians in Montmartre, where everyone from Toulouse-Lautrec—whose style and subjects embody the times—to Sarah Bernhardt and Paul Verlaine worked amid the swirl of cafés, concerts, circuses, and theatres. This exhibition is organized and circulated by Art Services International, Alexandria, Va.
• Through May 17: Of Cottages and Castles: The Art of California Faience — William Bragdon was a ceramic engineer trained at Alfred University in New York. He moved to Berkeley in 1915 to teach at the California School of Arts and Crafts and shortly thereafter formed a partnership with his Alfred University classmate Chauncey Thomas, then running a Berkeley pottery studio. Together they created decorative tiles, vases, and sculpture, calling their wares California Faience. The most prestigious of the company’s projects came in the 1920s when architect Julia Morgan commissioned a complete environment of tiles for William Randolph Hearst’s palatial home and grounds in San Simeon. The first exhibition on this subject, Of Cottages and Castles presents the full range of the company’s accomplishments, with an emphasis on decorative pieces emblematic of Arts and Crafts, Art Deco, and Moderne styles, as well as tiles made for Hearst Castle.
• Through May 17: The Nature of William S. Rice: Arts and Crafts Painter and Printmaker — This exhibition offers a rare glimpse into the private world of William S. Rice (1873–1963), an artist and naturalist known for his ability to distill nature to its simplest forms. Rice was a prolific painter of the California landscape but is today better known as a printmaker, one who authored two books on the process and executed every print himself. He applied the classic Japanese art of ukiyo-e (woodblock printing, or “pictures of the floating world”) to images of the West, where he moved in 1900. This exhibition brings to light many of the artist’s accomplishments, including several never-before-exhibited pieces capturing the California landscape before development.
• Through November 2015: California State Parks and the California State Railroad Museum present the See That Lonesome Whistle Blow: Mass Market Collectibles With a Railroad Twist exhibit in the museum’s Lobby Gallery. More than 50 steam train-themed mass market items, collectible objects and related artifacts will be on display as part of the new exhibit designed to demonstrate and reflect the widespread nature of railroading in popular American culture. A wide variety of (sometimes surprising) items will be included in this new exhibit, including the following: a liquor decanter, cologne bottle, lamp stand, flower vase, cigarette lighter, ash tray, tea pot, cracker box, candy container and bolo tie, to name a few. Museum visitors will be challenged to examine these types of objects — often called kitsch — more closely in an effort to understand how the items reflect popular culture and the period of time in which they were created. In addition, the exhibit will demonstrate the prevalence of stream train-themed artwork and/or designs being used to enhance consumer appeal on products, as well as illustrating the far-reaching impact railroading has had on the mindset of Americans. The museum is located at 125 I St. For more information call (916) 323-9280 or visit csrmf.org.
• Through November 2015: California State Parks and the California State Railroad Museum are proud to present a visually exciting, new exhibit titled Sculpture With a RE-Purpose: The Found Art of Ray Carrington that will showcase more than 40 sculptures created by a Fairfield artist. The cleverly designed sculptures were made from scrap metal, cast-off tools, railroad spikes, track plates and equipment retrieved from abandoned logging railroads and sawmills. Museum visitors will have the up-close opportunity to see and appreciate the technical craftsmanship, strength and finesse of each individual sculpture. Information about the science behind the variety of welding techniques used by the artist will also be covered in the exhibit. Shortly after the exhibit opens, an interactive station will be added so interested visitors can experiment with electromagnets and create their own temporary “found art” metal sculptures. For more information call (916) 323-9280 or visit csrmf.org.
• Feb. 28: California State Parks and the State Indian Museum will celebrate its 75th anniversary with a special Native Education for All Series: The Indian Experience in California’s Missions plus a book signing with the author of “A Cross of Thorns: The Enslavement of California’s Indians by the Spanish Missions.” The special activities will take place from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. The special 75th anniversary celebratory activities are free with paid admission — $3 for adults, $2 for youths ages 6 to 17 and free for children 5 and younger.
