June 8th & 9th, experience the serenity of Topanga Canyon while enjoying a one of a kind art tour. Topanga Canyon’s Gallery annual art tour features twenty-two studios tucked away in pristine scenic surroundings. Purchase works directly from the artists at studio prices while benefitting Topanga Canyon Gallery, a community resource. Founded in the 1950s, the gallery has evolved into what is now known as Topanga Canyon Gallery. The artists own and run the collective and present monthly exhibitions featuring well-known and emerging artists from the Los Angeles area. Many members live in Topanga Canyon, but it is not a requirement. Its current location, in the heart of the canyon at Pine Tree Circle, opened in 2000.
The self guided tour begins at Topanga Canyon Gallery, located at 120 N. Topanga Canyon Blvd., Suite 109, Topanga, CA 90290. Topanga is between Santa Monica and Malibu and south of Woodland Hills in the Santa Monica Mountains. Featuring over forty artists, the tour will allow visitors a unique opportunity to glimpse artists in their environments. Many artists will be offering live demonstrations.
Longtime member, Rebecca Catterall is an active member of the gallery. “Since the tour is a volunteer effort from member artists of Topanga Canyon Gallery, we are always grateful when member artist step up to the huge jobs of putting the tour together,” says Catterall. “But the biggest evolution is that it hasn’t evolved much. We hit on a winning combination of showcasing local artists with guest artists, providing an accurate map, signs everywhere to direct people, the reception and silent auction. And the biggest news is the price for the ticket has not gone up – $20 the day of for both days and $15 pre-sale.”
