The Manley Art Center holds a reception for each guest artist on the second Saturday of the month from 4–6 pm with an artist talk at 4 pm. During most months, a combination of venues in the downtown Brookings area unites local artists and craftsmen by holding open houses at their locations. The event is then called the Second Saturday Art Walk. This is a great way to experience the local art scene. Admission is free. For information regarding our current shows check out our gallery.
