Art Night Encinitas has been cancelled due to COVID-19 concerns. We hope to resume the program in 2021. 

Enjoy an evening of visual art 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 were 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.
