Special Art Events
October 4 (6-8)
The Painters Group presents "No Rules." 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 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 San Luis Obispo, a group devoted to the support of local artists and the community that backs them. We want 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 next Friday, 6-8pm.
