If you live in San Diego and are into all things art, you may have heard of the art block in Normal Heights. Located between 35th and Wilson, this block nurtures creative talent through several outlets: from a gallery collective and printing service to an art school and art supply shop, there is much to inspire any artist!
ArtLab is an amazing gallery on Adams Avenue that provides a creative environment for local artists, with studio space, monthly exhibits, community events, and much more. This membership based collective not only supports professionals, but also helps serious beginners gain their footing in SD.

The first Saturday of every month, ArtLab provides local artists with an area to network, collaborate, and display their artwork. The Art Block Festival features insightful & inspiring art work, great tunes by local bands (stage set up in the back), DIVINE vegan street tacos, and a chance to mingle with SD creative folks.
The artists who took part in this Art Block Festival included Brian Dombrowsky, Pamela Jaegar, Jorge Pina, Chris Vonbong and Tami Hawkins. Check out the art:
This past Saturday, the Adams Ave Art Block Festival featured new paintings by Bryen Beglinger inside the ArtLab gallery in a show titled ” Heroes And Icons.”

Wanna get involved? ArtLab is always looking for volunteers: you can help out with an event, host a workshop, or just aid in maintaining longer gallery hours. If you’re interested in helping out, contact ArtLab via phone at (619) 283 1151.
Stay Tuned: I loved Visual Art Supply (located next door) so much that it warrants its very own post, coming up next. Trust me, you don’t want to miss it!
