Dear Friends of the Carpinteria Arts Center,
Today, after more than 15 years, we closed our final exhibition at 855 Linden Avenue to embark upon a major renovation. Later this year we will re-open the doors at 865 Linden Avenue to a brand new gallery and additional spaces for workshops and arts-related activities, as well as a catering kitchen to support our own events and occasional weddings and private events.
In the coming months, our workshops and activities will continue. We are pleased to be working with the Alcazar Theatre, the Carpinteria Woman's Club, the United Boys & Girls Club Carpinteria Unit, Soul Nest Studio, and Carpinteria Middle School, who have all offered us the use of their space. Check the website for updates on available workshops.
We are fortunate to live in a community that embraces the arts for all its residents. It is not too late to make a contribution to the capital campaign, and there are still a few naming opportunities for those who would like to recognize their family or commemorate a loved one. Please contact me at 805-684-7789, or
, if you would like more information.
On behalf of our board of directors, thank you for all your support, as artists, art lovers, instructors, musicians, funders, and volunteers. It is an exciting time for the Carpinteria community.
