It’s all happening here. From classes for kids to conversations with some of Marin’s most distinguished artists, Art Works Downtown is the place where artists, art lovers, and the broader community come together and connect.
2nd Friday Art Walk
Enjoy galleries, open studios, art exhibits, live music and refreshments as you stroll in downtown San Rafael. Anchored by Art Works Downtown galleries and artist studios, the 2nd Fridays Art Walk links venues along downtown Fourth Street the second Friday of each month.
2nd Friday Art Walk Page
Get a fresh perspective on making art and take a deeper look at some of the work that's created by our art community. Join us to meet the artists whose work is shown in our galleries and elsewhere at one of our art receptions.
Most receptions are held on the second Friday of each month, to coincide with the regular 2nd Fridays Art Walk. For future dates, check the Upcoming Events page or visit each exhibit listing.
Art Talks are educational offerings for the AWD Artist Membership Program and the public. Talks offer stimulating perspectives and discussion on a wide variety of topics related to the experience of making and marketing art. For future dates, check the Upcoming Events page.
Open Studios is one of the best times of year to shop for artwork because the many artists you occasionally see in galleries open their studios to the public. Visitors can take this opportunity to see a variety of artists during a short period of time.
