Thursdays on the Coast Art Walk in the Carlsbad Art District

An artist on the street during the Carlsbad Art WalkCarlsbad continues to grow in reputation as a town that celebrates the arts.

 

We have a ways to go to before we can truly be considered an arts destination, but there is much to celebrate about the arts in Carlsbad, and the growing Carlsbad Arts District. 

 

The Thursdays on the Coast Art Walk in Carlsbad Village is one very good example. We took in the galleries and shops last week, June 24th - the Thursdays on the Coast Art Walk is held year round on the last Thursday of every month from 5 until 9 pm. Retailers, restaurant and galleries are open for all to enjoy, providing a wide range of fun, shopping, and art.

 

Just a few stellar examples (out of many possibilities) of what we enjoyed the other night in the Carlsbad Arts District

 

One of many retailers open during the Carlsbad art walk Ivanffy-Uhler Gallery - this is a favorite of mine, with an eclectic and stimulating collection of works in a range of prices and mediums, with charming owners to boot. Definitely worth your while to stop by and enjoy...and buy. Paul Uhler is one of the leaders in the arts community follow him on Facebook

NOTE - Sadly this gallery closed a couple of years ago after this article was written.

 

The Foundry @ New Village Arts- a collective of open studios with a fine group of artists to suit a broad range of artistic esthetics. It's fun to be able to meet the artists in their studios. At the New Village Arts venue on State Street

 

Snyder Art - also on State Street, a bit further out of town but well worth your visit. Bryan Snyder is a talented artist of many mediums. He is a leader in the Carlsbad community in terms of promoting art, and creator of the Carlsbad Crawl, a wonderful blog about Carlsbad art. Check it out and subscribe! Bryan also has created wonderful "I Love Carlsbad" t-shirts for sale - only $10!

 

And while there were plans for dinner elsewhere, we stopped by to check out the new Carlsbad wine shop, Vintage, (SORRY THEY HAVE NOW CLOSED) and grabbed a few chocolates at the Carlsbad Chocolate Bar for desert.

 

There are so many other places to visit during the Thursdays on the Coast Art Walk - here's the brochure (feel free to download):

Some other artistic venues and events to celebrate Carlsbad arts (my apologies to galleries not yet discovered): 

New Village Arts - theatre

TGIF Jazz in the Parks Concert Series

Art Splash - held annually in September

Cannon Art Gallery - a wonderful city art gallery with a masterful director/curator and marvelous exhibits throughout the year

Front Porch Gallery - they are part of the art walk but we did not make it over there. Well worth your visit, with changing exhibits year-round.
