‘Pines’ festival will celebrate nature

A colorful burst of spring wildflowers will be the backdrop for the premiere of the Art in the Pines Festival and Sale from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. May 2 at the Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve.

The festival, a benefit for nature education at the Reserve, will take place outside the Visitor Center with the theme, “A Celebration of Nature Through the Interpretive Eye of the Artist.” It will feature nature-inspired art in a variety of categories, including paintings, drawings, sculpture, ceramics and photography.

More than 100 artists from San Diego County will participate, including local landscape masters Joan Grine, Annette Paquet, Grace Schlesier, Sidney Wildesmith and Jeff Yeomans.

Visitors can meet artists inside an Open Air Galleria or at one of several booths. A professionally-judged Plein Air Artist Competition will be open to artists with pieces that focus on the Reserve. Visitors who come to the Reserve during the week preceding the festival will have an opportunity to observe some of the Plein Air artists on the trails.

Live music, guided nature walks, children’s art activities, art demonstrations and presentations will also take place throughout the day. Lunch and snack items will be available for sale on a cash-only basis on the veranda of the historic Torrey Pines Lodge. There will be an opportunity drawing for pieces of donated artwork.

Admission is free. The festival is sponsored by the Torrey Pines Association and the Torrey Pines Docent Society. A shuttle service will transport visitors from the South Beach parking lot to the Visitor Center. A day-use fee or valid annual pass is required for each vehicle entering the Reserve.

This wasn’t recent, fortunately, but it comprise […]
