Every year during the holiday season, Studios on the Park transforms into a destination for unique, handmade gifts during the “Handcrafted for the Holidays” exhibition. This special exhibition is a tradition that offers an exquisite collection of handcrafted gifts and art created by over 20 talented artists and artisans.
Studios on the Park in Paso Robles will feature an art exhibition that showcases the creativity of artists working with wood and its byproducts. The show, called “A Cut Above” will be held from Aug. 30 to Oct. 29, in the Atrium Gallery.
