ArtBeat owner Kait Matthews believes, “Great art comes in small packages, and our annual competition proves that maxim. In the past, we have received diverse works in oil, acrylic, watercolor and other traditional art media. Some are as small as four inches square while others are as ‘large’ as the allowed maximum of eight-by-ten inches framed. I am always astounded and delighted at the creativity of our local and regional artists, and look forward to a great show!”

ArtBeat on Main Street co-op gallery and wine lounge is located at 330 Main Street in downtown Vista. It is open Tuesday and Wednesday, 11:00am-7:30pm; Thursday-Saturday, 11:00am-8:30pm; Sunday, Noon-7:00pm.
