256. Art Works Downtown

Art Works Downtown is a wonderful combination of art exhibitions, artists studios and art classes in a long stretch of storefronts (and the basements below) on 4th Street, San Rafael. If you haven’t stopped in before, you should. The street front galleries are beautiful, filled with the current exhibition, “Material at Play – New Master Works from the Baulines Craft Guild.”

The pieces represent works by many artists who are part of this guild that was started in 1972 to preserve the art crafts in America, and whose members have works in many of the most prominent museums in the country. There are sculptures in many different materials (wood, paper, metal, etc.), woven pieces, mixed media, furniture, and more. Many are breathtakingly beautiful.

After you’ve enjoyed the exhibit, feel free to wander the halls of the studios, and see the art that lines the walls, and see artists at work.

The exhibits change every 6 weeks or so, so be sure to stop by often.
