I Finally Left the House!

12 Aug

This weekend I had the pleasure of actually going out for the evening! You see, the past couple of months I have not wanted to leave the house much at all (morning sickness will do that to you!)

Anyway, my friend Gloria told me about this gallery in Escondido that was having a show and someone she knows was having work in it and did we want to go? Yes we did. And I’m glad I did.

This was some of the best art I’ve seen in San Diego. And in Escondido of all places. I had actually never been to Escondido’s downtown and it’s very cute. Old-school department stores, restaurants, and Distinction gallery.

The gallery has several rooms for displaying art, plus there are artist’s studios there, where you can see art in progress and meet some of the artists. They also sell art online.

This particular show, Project 57, was to raise money for Lewy body dementia and all the works were tiny: just 5″ x 7″.

This was my absolute favorite:

“Keep Me Warm” by Scott Belcastro.

You can see more of his work on his blog. His pieces are a little bit fairy-tale, a touch melancholy but still full of hope, and all completely charming!

I also really like this one:

“Myself vs. Myself”

I seem to have a little thing for houses right now. Perhaps because of a series I have been working on about places I’ve lived, which I hope to be able to show you in the not-too-distant future…
