TOP TEN ART PARTIES / Events - January 2018

As we forge ahead into 2018, the art world will see many changes. I have been receiving emails and calls from many subscribers about the fate of Bergamot Station Arts Center aka the 26th Street Art Center (its official name as of January 2018).

Here is a statement from Skidmore Contemporary Art”Despite erroneous rumors, the art gallery complex we all love is not closing. A few galleries have left. The core group of the twenty most important galleries are still here and are continuing their usual exhibition programs. We have just signed leases with Worthe Real Estate and look forward to our future together! As well, we thank the City of Santa Monica and the Santa Monica Arts Commission for their continued support of our efforts. All that is about to change is the name of our gallery complex.”

January is a busy month...Enjoy our staff picks for the Top Ten Art Parties / Events for January 2018.
