Talmadge Art Show Says Goodbye

For the past 27 years, the Talmadge Art Show has been a labor of love.

We have welcomed and supported hundreds of artists and thousands of customers, and produced close to 100 quality contemporary craft shows in San Diego.

We are so very proud of the growth of the show: watching new artists become successful with their craft and accomplished artists trying something new.

However, it’s with a heavy heart that we have to say goodbye.

We have wonderful memories of everyone we have met over the years.

Artists – keep creating and finding new ways to express yourselves.

Customers – keep on attending art shows and bring joy into your lives with unique craft.

Remember: Be Moved by The Creative Spirit!

We wish you all the best and you can contact us at

Much Love,

 Sharon & Alan

Mosaic Tray Class - October 6, 2019

Instructor: Marlene Recht and Sheryl Snyder, The Art Safari | 11am – 1pm, $75.00

You'll learn how to mosaic, an ancient art form, that dates back to early civilization. And you'll be introduced to a variety of mosaic techniques, utilizing traditional and up-cycled materials including glass and ceramic tiles, vintage and contemporary dishes and found objects. You'll leave with a completed project and instructions, ready to grout. And you'll be confident in the knowledge that you can continue this art form on your own.


Hear from some of our attending artists about their experience at Talmadge Art Show.

Talmadge Art Show has been a gift to the public for many years. It is the best art show in San Diego, and gives local artists a venue for their creations. Sharon and Alan are wonderful to work with. The Talmadge show is the only show I do where help is available to help you get your merchandise in and out, and set up, and have people on hand so artists can take a break throughout the show. Sharon and Alan go above and beyond in producing the show and in how they treat all the artists and all of our clients. They continue to add features to the show to enhance the experience for all who attend in any capacity; like the art classes that have been recently added. Talmadge Days are a highlight! I cannot thank them enough. A very professionally and competently produced show.

Bonnie Bowman Long Time Talmadge Artist

Your ongoing support for the local art scene in San Diego has been a valuable asset to our community and one of the main reasons I enjoy participating. Your professionalism on every level has helped make the Talmadge Art Show an event that enriches and truly benefits all San Diegans. Thank you for encouraging the arts at a time when we really need it

I’ve been a vendor at Talmadge Art Show since 2006 and have seen it grow by leaps and bounds. Events are run smoothly and efficiently, with extensive advertising and a sizable mailing list. The producers know how to draw a crowd and operate it like the business that it is. All of this translates to the success of vendors too. As an independent artisan, this is a must-do show for me.
