Established in 2011, the Pismo Beach Art Show (called SLOPOKE) has emerged as a go-to destination for collectors of museum-quality fine Western art. In 2017, organizers are ready to again host the growing event, which is just around the corner.

Pismo Beach Veterans’ Memorial Hall in California will be the proud host of 2017’s SLOPOKE art show and sale, featuring a range of sculpture and paintings by leading Western artists. The event kicks off on Saturday, September 30, and will continue through Sunday, October 1. Now in its seventh year, the show originated as a Western art exhibition, but has since expanded to contemporary art as well in response to customer demand.
