Enjoy a Saturday evening of visual art as Encinitas civic and local art galleries swing open their doors at Art Night Encinitas from 5:30-8:30pm--new hours for 2022. 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 the civic art spaces and thriving visual art scene in Encinitas. 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.
