First Friday ArtWalk and Call for Artists

Oceanside CA— Oceanside is the home to military, surf, skate and now a thriving art district. The First Friday ArtWalk is held in downtown Oceanside on the first Friday of every month. Explore downtown with the vibrant art community showcasing live performances, music, poetry, art education, culinary and pop-up art galleries embedded in local businesses and public spaces.

The Oceanside ArtWalk committee is accepting applications from visual artists (sculpture, paintings, quilts, etc.), live performers (jugglers, theatre, pantomime, spoken word, etc.), and musicians of any genre wishing to participate in the Friday, February 6th ArtWalk. Applications will be accepted from December 8, 2014, to January 19, 2015.

The artistic talent will be matched with a venue for a partnership that can range from one night to an entire month-long exhibition, depending on the venue’s flexibility. This is a great opportunity for artists to showcase their talent and make a sale to local aficionados and visiting tourists to remember Oceanside as a premier destination for arts and culture in North County San Diego, part of newly formed North Coast Theatre And Arts District.

All participants’ locations will be conveniently identifiable on the handouts of the Art Walk’s map to ensure a steady and pleasant flow of attendants to all places – courtesy of the organizers. A free monthly event, Oceanside Art Walk has already introduced both new and established artists and artisans to thousands of cultural enthusiasts as it continues to draw audiences from San Diego to L.A. and beyond.
