For nearly two decades, the Carlsbad Village Association has held its annual one-day, open-air, juried art show called Art in the Village on the second Sunday in August. This year, we welcome its 18th season on Aug. 14 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the heart of the Village on State Street and Grand Avenue.
More than 100 local and regional fine artists will call the Village their art studio for the day. Celebrating the dynamic art culture in Carlsbad Village and the surrounding areas, this event attracts approximately 5,000 art enthusiasts and features oil painting, watercolor, photography, mixed media, new media, classical and contemporary sculpture, as well as artisans who work in the mediums of jewelry, woodworking, furniture, pottery, hand-painted clothing and accessories, and more.
Attendees can browse exhibits, meet the artists, and perhaps find that one-in-a-million piece of artwork to take home. Artists will also conduct demonstrations and offer instruction throughout the day. Village eateries, coffee houses and wine bars are located just steps away from the art show for a delicious breakfast, lunch or an après-show dinner.
This year, local musicians will play at the south end of State Street, between the Carlsbad Chocolate Bar and Choice Juicery. This will be a perfect place to sit and relax for a while and enjoy the ambience that the Village offers on a sunny summer day.
On Aug. 14, come lose yourself in the local artistry of Carlsbad Village and see what artistic treasures you might find.
