Mendocino Open Paint Out

58th Annual Thanksgiving Arts & Crafts Fair

In what has become a north coast tradition, 35 juried artists and craftspeople from California, Oregon and New York exhibit original handmade artwork. The Mendocino Art Center’s galleries and class studios are transformed into a two-day holiday marketplace, providing residents and visitors a pleasant alternative to hectic, stressful mall shopping while supporting local and regional artists. Featured will be a wide array of unique, high quality artwork and gift items, including handmade jewelry, original paintings, photography, functional and decorative ceramics, fiber art and clothing, furniture, wood accessories, baskets, glass and mosaic works, handcrafted herbal body care products, and so much more.

Warm yourself with a delicious assortment of festive food items and drinks.

The Mendocino Art Center's Gallery Shop is also open during the Thanksgiving Arts & Crafts Fair and offers great gift ideas.
