The AMAZING things that can be done with ENCAUSTICS…!

Will be demonstrated by Flo Bartell on October 17th, from 2-4 pm.   Now let us go beyond encaustic basics! Flo will show you how to work on paper, embed stamped fabric, and create dimension.  All are welcome, and those who have already tried encaustics will be delighted by the plethora of possibilities!!!

 This demo is free, and open to all, but    PLEASE call us and reserve a space!!!  

“No Rules” show opens in October!

October is here, and in honor of the changing seasons, we here at Art Central decided to change it up a bit, too!

October’s  exhibit  “NO RULES” demonstrates just how wild and creative some of our local artists can go when the only guideline to abide by is to not abide by any guidelines!  “No Rules” features The Painters Group of the San Luis Obispo Museum of Art,  a group devoted to the support of local artists and the community that backs them. We asked these artists to take the expression ‘thinking out of the box’ to a whole new level… heck, throw out the box, altogether!  This is an extraordinary opportunity not to be missed!  We hope to see you here for Art After Dark on Friday, 6-8pm!
