“Unique Art”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 September 2013

It's very interesting to watch the artists at work, and a great place to purchase art for you home or business. It's a great addition to downtown Paso Robles. The only drawback is that it's either closed a lot of the time or open only for private events.

“Like eclectic forms of art? Visit here.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 August 2013

This is actually several studios under one roof, and everything from contemporary and plein air painters, to potters, jewelers, glass, and other media. Some of the art makes you scratch your head, but there is plenty other stuff worth looking at and perhaps making an investment. The plein air is my favorite. This is a worthwhile endeavor, and a great way to spend a Saturday or Sunday afternoon strolling with a special person. Take your time, look around, enjoy.

“What's not to like about this gem of an idea?”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 August 2013

As an artist and resident of one of the "artsiest" cities in the world, Santa Fe, I found this working studio and collective art gallery very refreshing and a real breath of fresh air. Paso Robles residents and city leaders should be be very proud.

With such rampant and overt commercialism fueling most development in PR and other tourist destinations in the area, the Studios on the Park concept is one I hope catches on.

Great variety, multiple artists on hand, skill levels quite good, prices running a very broad range, etc. make a it a great stop.

I would take exception with the previous reviewer who stated that visiting the Studio is free. A voluntary donation collection box is prominently displayed at the entrance and given the rent I'm sure a space of this size and location must command, anybody with an interest in this amazing resource surviving for the long haul, should forgo maybe one glass of wine or desert and make a couple dollar donation any time you visit.

We were there on a Friday night at almost 8pm prior to our dinner reservations nearby and there were at least half a dozen artists still there, still working, still being the utmost in friendliness and gracefulness and all deserve to have this space and concept fully supported by the community and not just art buyers from elsewhere. It enriches the city and deserves to flourish.

“Eclectic, Fun, Creative and FREE!”

I have been to the Studios on the Park many times. This is a consortium of artists who create in many mediums. Prices run the gamut of lower end to very pricey. Something for everyone.
