The Mendocino Art Center hosts a free 2nd Saturday Artists Reception each month. Meet and mingle with the featured gallery artists. Enjoy snacks, wine and, of course, fabulous art. Also, Mendocino Art Center’s talented Artists in Residence (AIR) and visiting artists open their studios to the public. Featured will be ceramics, fiber art, fine art, and jewelry. Talk to the artists, ask questions, watch fascinating on-going demonstrations in a variety of media and have the opportunity to purchase original artwork made at MAC.

The reception will also serve as a fundraiser for the Mendocino Art Center’s Scholarship Fund, providing tuition assistance for art classes to deserving students.
