On Saturday, May 23rd Studios on the Park and the City of Paso Robles cohost the inaugural Paso Robles Festival of the Arts in the Downtown City Park.
During the months of April and May, over 60 acclaimed Festival artists spent time exploring the Salinas River Corridor to gain inspiration for their submissions. In many cases, artists paint on location the views, the subtle color shifts and changing light in this special place. Others walk the river bed with cameras in hand. Mediums include oil, pastel, watercolor, photography, sculpture, jewelry and ceramics.
Each participating artist in this exhibition submitted at least one piece of art to be on display and for sale during the Festival, with a portion of the proceeds from the sale of the art benefitting the Salinas River Corridor Project and Studios on the Park.
