Yesterday I drove to San Diego with my husband, Mario, to attend the opening reception of The Fourth International Exhibition of The Fine Line Artists at the Mission Trails Regional Park Art Gallery. The exhibition is located at One Father Junipero Serra Trail and will run until December 3rd. Hours are Sunday - Saturday, 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM.
The Fine Line Artists is a group of artists who provide support for the development of their art and the business of being an artist. The five women who took part in the exhibition are: Katherine Tyrrell, Vivien Blackburn, Nicole Caulfield, Gayle Mason, and Louise Sackett.
I was glad to see Louise whom I've known from her days with the San Diego Chapter of the Colored Pencil Society. She recently moved to New Mexico and came back to organize and hang the show. She certainly did a great job - the exhibit was well presented, the reception lively, and the location really suited the art.
The subject matter was very diverse and included wildlife, still life, landscape, and botanical. It was a pleasure viewing up close artworks that I had previously admired online, and getting acquainted with new ones.
Mario and I came to the reception with the intention of taking many good pictures. Unfortunately my camera's automatic focus stopped working and the glasses I had with me were not very helpful in setting the focus manually. I hope you can still get a glimpse of this wonderful exhibition. Make sure to visit the artists' websites/blogs to enjoy more and better images of their art.
