Enjoy an evening of visual art on Saturday, February 1, 2020 from 6:00-9:00 p.m., as Encinitas civic and local art galleries swing open their doors at Art Night Encinitas. The event celebrates the city’s diverse visual art scene at participating locations and is free to the public. Enjoy live music and refreshments at several locations.
“Art Night Encinitas was conceived by the Commission for the Arts to bring focus to our civic art galleries and thriving visual art scene,” said Commission for the Arts Chair Collette Stefanko. In 2019, 47 exhibits by local artists will be presented in the City's three civic art galleries along with a myriad of local artists who will exhibit their work at participating galleries.
The bi-monthly art open house benefits artists through the sale of their art and provides the public an opportunity to interact with artists and learn about the creative process. Upcoming Art Nights will take place on Saturdays, 6-9pm on Apr. 11, June 6, Aug. 1, Oct. 3, and Nov. 21, 2020.
