California has already contributed to the history of art in America but she is destined to add far more brilliant pages, not in individual effort, but in the great number of artist who will take part in making here a culture which is not yet imagined.” – Maurice Braun, notable San Diego Painter (1928)

Continuing the region’s legacy of celebrating San Diego’s vibrant arts community, The Studio Door will once again showcase the region’s visual artists through local exhibitions, online gallery and a national publication under the 50 TO WATCH banner.

50 TO WATCH is a regional biennial exhibition highlighting San Diego’s best visual artists running from March 2 – 25, 2018.  The 2018 exhibition will be featured in two galleries: The Studio Door (North Park) and Escondido Arts Partnership. In addition to the exhibition, a high-end artist catalog will be produced, printed and mailed to 1,000+ galleries around the country. The Studio Door is seeking artists in San Diego County to submit their best works for consideration.
