Studio Artist Open House: Angels Gate Cultural Center is home year round to one of the largest Studio Artist Programs in the region, with a diverse body of disciplines including ceramics, photography, printmaking, music, writing, and filmmaking. On Open Studios Day, over 50 artists open their studios to the public to share their work. Several artists will demonstrate their craft and many will have artwork for sale. This is a perfect time to pick up special, unique and beautiful handmade gifts just in time for the holiday season.

Gallery Opening: Angels Gate Cultural Center is pleased to present a much anticipated event with Avenue 50 Studio and The Arroyo Arts Collective: On The Map: Artists Maps from Opposite Ends of the 110 Freeway, an Ancient Route Reconnected. The exhibition will take place in two places simultaneously; Avenue 50 Studio located in the Highland Park neighborhood of Los Angeles and Angels Gate Cultural Center in San Pedro. Curators from the three participating organizations created an open call for maps created by artists that live and work at opposite ends of the 110 Freeway in Los Angeles. The twenty selected proposals will be hosted by the organization at the other end of the highway from the artists; the artwork itself tracing the road that was once traveled by native Tongva, the Spanish wagon, the stagecoach route and early trains. Avenue 50 Gallery opens November 12th through December 3rd.
Syracuse MFA candidates will present work from their semester at Angels Gate Cultural Center in the Community Gallery and Community Room.
Angels Gate Cultural Center is open to the public seven days a week from 10 am to 5 pm and admission is always free.
