My PIcTOpanga studiocard731x1024k of the Week is the annual Topanga Canyon Gallery Studio tour which takes place all weekend….June 8th and 9th. What a fabulous way to spend the weekend. See my article in this Friday’s Santa Monica Mirror. It’s a review of last year’s event. I had such a good time.

LA Art Party is raffling off two tickets to the tour….see our Facebook Page for all the details and you could win!

You can visit twenty two venues and see the work of over forty artists. Enjoy art demonstrations as well as works in progress in working studios.

A highlight of the tour is the Silent Auction at the Saturday night reception. Gallery and tour artists contribute 8″x8″ works of original art to go to the highest bidder.

Tickets for both days are $15 in advance or $20 at the door. Children under 16 are free. The tour begins at Topanga Canyon Gallery where work from each artist will be on display with the site number to assist in route planning with the tour map.

Topanga Canyon Gallery is an artist-owned and run collective that grew from the first Topanga Artists’ Guild in the 1950s. Its current location in Pine Tree Circle opened in 2000. Topanga Canyon Gallery presents exhibitions by well-known and emerging artists from the Los Angeles area, many of whom make Topanga Canyon their home.
