Aptos Art Studios Art Show Saturday April 30th and Sunday May 1st 

Aptos Art Studios is hosting its first annual art show. 

 For many years most of us at Aptos Art Studios have been happy creating our works and selling through galleries and exhibitions.. Along the way we have developed good relationships with each other and we respect each other's works. As a group many of us participate in the Open Studios Art Tour yearly and exhibit together at different venues. After our last group event, we started to talk about doing an exhibit that would include more artists in our complex, and from this discussion the Aptos Art Studio exhibit idea was born.

We are pleased to invite the public to join us for our first annual art show on Saturday April 30th and Sunday May 1st from 11 AM to 5 PM each day.  

Ten artists will be opening their studios to the public, offering a diversity of works, from oil, acrylic and encaustic paintings, to sculpture, assemblages, and ceramics.

The Aptos Art Studios are located at 800 Estates Drive off of McGregor Drive between State Park Drive and Park Avenue in Aptos. We will have signs around that point drivers to the Aptos Warehouse Complex in which our studios are located. Aptos Warehouse Complex.

In 1978, the artist settled on California’s Monterey Peninsula where he has shared his works with the local community as well as international art enthusiasts.
