Events

The Colonnade Art Gallery and Studio holds monthly themed showing that are open to the public. We include a diverse range of art in our shows: stationary, ceramics, sculpture, jewelry as well as paintings. Our themed shows almost always begin with an Opening (check below for scheduled dates/times). During these Openings, we encourage all to come and enjoy the atmosphere that each showing uniquely brings. We hope that these monthly themes will encourage you to explore new avenues of artistic expression.

 

You must be a member to display your artwork in our monthly shows. Make an appointment and bring in 3 samples of your work. Artists receive 100% of the sale (no gallery commission). If you are interested in becoming a member or want to know more, visit our Membership page. You may also make an inquiry through our Contact Us page or call us direct at 626-239-3153.
