Exhibition offers collection of handcrafted gifts and art created by over 20 talented artists and artisans

PASO ROBLES — Every year during the holiday season, Studios on the Park transforms into a destination for unique, handmade gifts during the “Handcrafted for the Holidays” exhibition. This special exhibition is a tradition that offers an exquisite collection of handcrafted gifts and art created by over 20 talented artists and artisans.

This years’ exhibition will run for two months, giving Paso Robles residents and visitors ample time to shop for incredible, one-of-a-kind gifts at accessible price points. Retail Sales Manager Pamela Johnson, who helped to organize the show along with Curator and Operations Manager Jordan Hockett, states that she is “happy to say we are welcoming back several of our fine craft artisans from previous years while also welcoming some new ones. We’re adding to our variety of finely crafted gift items to include leather work, hand-painted clothing, and a chocolatier to name just a few.” 

Not only will your purchase support local artisans and small businesses, but a portion of all proceeds will go back into supporting Studios on the Park’s mission of providing essential arts programming for children, teens, and adults through our Kids Art Smart and Community Arts Access programs. You can get your holiday shopping done while making a difference in the community.
