Del Mar Art Center hosts its annual Starry Night event

By Linda McIntosh


Art enthusiasts crowded into the Del Mar Art Center on Dec. 13 for the annual Starry Night reception at the Del Mar Plaza. Artists and community members mingled as they strolled through the gallery, tasting wine and cheese and holiday desserts.

The Unitarian Universalist Singers sang holiday carols, and later the band Contrast, featuring Erik and Reece Jensen, performed blues on the keyboard and guitar.

Throughout the evening, artwork donated by Del Mar Art Center members was raffled off to raise money for the nonprofit’s programs, such as free lectures and children’s exhibits.

The center, founded in 2000 by Maria Gardiner, will celebrate its 10th anniversary next year.

The gallery is open in the Del Mar Plaza, 1555 Camino del Mar, from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Wednesday-Saturday and 1 to 5 p.m. Sunday.
