Located at 302 W. Hopkins St., San Marcos, a new gallery for local artists called Studio San Martian will soon open.

Studio San Martian is expected to be a local artist gallery with a retail shop, artist resource center and event space. The gallery and retail space will house the work of several local painters, creators and jewelry artisans, and it will also include holistic beauty products and a vintage clothing shop, according to the owners of Studio San Martian. The communal space can be rented for events, such as film screenings, poetry readings, workshops or tea sits.
