March 22 - A spin-off of our long-running Art Walk, the new Carlsbad Village Art Hop is a celebration of the arts providing access to art of all mediums, live music, light refreshments, and interactive options for the whole family. Meet the artists who make it all come alive!
With three locations, you can hop from one to the other, right in downtown Carlsbad Village.
The Foundry Artist Studios
The Foundry Artist Studios will feature 16 artists in an open-house environment, along with live music and light refreshments, as well as the return of Snyder Art's interactive egg crafting project. Craft a plastic egg on March 22 during the Art Hop. Return to the Village on Easter morning to find your egg hidden in the Village streets— along with 50+ others!

Viz Art Ink Gallery
Then hop over to Viz Art Ink Gallery where the artwork from a dozen or more local artists is on display. Enjoy live music and demo while browsing art ranging from jewelry to glass surfboards to digital art.
Carlsbad Village Faire
The third Art Hop location is the Village Faire center where you will find pop-up art galleries in the courtyard, in addition to the COAL Gallery and Lynn Forbes Sculpting Studio. Live and interactive sculpting will be taking place. Live music and light refreshments from Village Faire restaurants will be available to enjoy.
Pick up a promotional card at any one of the three locations starting March 15. Future Carlsbad Village Art Hop dates are Thursday, June 28 and September 27.
