218 Co-op Gallery will host a Grand Opening Party during May's Downtown Walkabout. Stop by to check out the first artist co-op in San Marcos.
Fourteen area artists have come together to create the vibrant, artist-owned 218 Co-op Gallery. Housed in one of SMTX's historic downtown buildings, the gallery’s vintage brick and plaster walls provide a warm backdrop for the eclectic mix of art, jewelry, sculpture and functional wares. Part gallery shop and part exhibit space, the folks at 218 are working hard to create a venue where you can see, experience and buy quality, hand crafted pieces. Keeping things truly local is our goal.

Please join us for our Preview Party and art show. 218 Studioworks is transitioning to 218 Co-op Gallery in May, but we thought it would be fun to get our members together in April for a little pre-Grand Opening show. Stop by during Third Thurday to say hi, meet the group and find some great art to add your collection. While you're out, be sure to also swing by the other venues around town who are also part of Third Thursday like Dahlia Woods Gallery, The Price Center and many of our great downtown businesses.
218studioworks is excited to host this great comedy duo in San Marcos for one night only! Limited seating in a great small artful environment. You won't want to miss this!
"Epic photo with visual artist Ender Martos and some AMAZING folks we met at 218studioworks. This place was created by Kevin Huffaker and his wife. They provide San Marcos Artists with an awesome space to show their work and make money from it. These guys are a gem; they are the type of ultra, super nice people you can find in Downtown San Marcos — with Romina Olson, Downtown San Marcos and SMTX in San Marcos, Texas."

In continuation of --- Sustained Improvisations, chaos, chance and hazard influence each formation. Bending and moving easily each inclusion becomes embedded yet remains defiantly distinct. The union of plush and rough stimulates an impression of SUPPLE INCLUSIONS.
Running Sept. 10th--17th, a unique and very special show--The Fountains of St. Mark. This show is a love story. Stunning underwater photographs illustrate the fragility and strength of artesian springs which form the headwaters of the San Marcos River, while interpretive paintings inspired from those same photos provide the foundation for this love story.
Come join Ron Coley and Janet Skaggs Hardin at 218studioworks during Mermaid week, and develop your sense of stewardship and awe for the natural resource so beautifully portrayed in these wonderful 1st edition large format color photographic/print books.
