We would like to invite artists from all mediums to join us for the upcoming Sweet & Sour exhibition at Studios on the Park. In this exhibition, artists are encouraged to make a play on the dichotomy or pick a side of Sweet & Sour. Whether you’re thinking about food, attitude, color or duality of contrasting elements, we welcome all ideas for this exhibition.

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.
