Romantics find their muse at the Fike Gallery. Power, Sensuality, Romanticism, is the essence of artist Lauri Blank’s work.

Romance is alive and well at the Fike Gallery. Ms. Blank’s art exemplifies this romantic attitude in every brush stroke. Her work is a visual reminder that the very act of living is a sensual experience. Fike Gallery is pleased to welcome Ms. Blank for a two-day event and reception. Friday, Nov 2, the Fike Gallery is hosting a reservation only charity event with Ms. Blank and the Sacramento WIND youth association. Followed by an, open to the public, reception for the artist on Saturday Nov. 3rd.

“It is a rare treat to meet an artist with such passion and talent” says Wayne Procissi of Procissi Cellar. Ms. Blank’s accomplishments are very impressive. She won her first art competition at age 7 and by 12 years old she was honored by the Norton Museum of Art in a prestigious national exhibition. She has been featured on HGTV and in Architectural Digest along with many other publications. In 2002 her work was selected as the official art for the 44th annual Grammy Awards. She continues to impress the art world with her many accomplishments.

Fike Gallery is northern California’s only showroom for Ms. Blank’s work, carrying both original and fine art Giclees. Please join us in welcoming this incredible artist to Folsom.
