The free Artwalk Tour gives about a one hour sample of the diverse art scene in San Pedro,– with a different itinerary each month. The tour leaves at 6:30 from the Chamber of Commerce Board Room Gallery.

A new exhibit at the San Pedro Chamber Board Room Gallery is a photography collection by Lynn Doran , Gallery MS  has a new show, as do Dekor  and the Parkhurst Gallery  on 6th. Details on theses galleries and more are covered in the August Arts District ENews.

After the tour, you have plenty of time to enjoy a meal or glass of wine with entertainment at one of the many of the popular independent restaurants in San Pedro, and explore other art venues on your own.

Each month the Artwalk tour starts at 6:30, meeting at the San Pedro Chamber of Commerce, 390 W. 7th Street. ” Pat Carroll
