Art Night in Encinitas set for Saturday
Encinitas art galleries and community venues are opening their doors for a free night of art and music
Encinitas art galleries and civic venues are opening their doors for a free night of art and music, from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. on Saturday, July 23. The art open house, which happens every other month, celebrates the city’s diverse visual art scene and benefits local artists through the sale of their work.
Art Night Encinitas was started by the City’s Commission for the Arts to spotlight art spaces in the community and give the public a chance to chat with artists. Live music and refreshments will be offered at several locations.
