Life Refurbished

Studios on the Park

 

We would like to invite artists from all mediums to join us for the upcoming Life Refurbished exhibition at Studios on the Park. In this exhibition, artists are encouraged to use refurbished materials to create new pieces of artwork. Artists are able to get creative with what kind of materials they would like to use such as recycled woods, metals, glass, ceramics, and fabrics.

Studios on the Park is a nonprofit gallery and open studios art center in a prestigious location in downtown Paso Robles, California. We have featured world-class artists in our exhibitions for over 10 years. Paso Robles is recognized nation wide as a premier wine and culinary destination and we, through exhibitions like this one, contribute shows of curated, high quality artwork to this exciting cultural scene. We expect over 7,000 visitors to our 2000 sq. ft. atrium gallery space for this exhibition.

Art sales from these exhibitions also serve as fundraisers for our essential arts services to more than 100,000 students, families and visitors each year.

Please email us by March 11, 2022, with images of your work(s) or a description of a work-in-progress. Entry fees will also be due at this time. Final show selections will be based on submissions received and available space.
