‘Art in the Pines’ event to be held May 15 at Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve

Enjoy spring wildflowers in full bloom, watch artists capture the beauty of nature on their canvases, experience the reserve with family and friends, and breathe in the fresh ocean air while supporting the preservation of one of San Diego’s unique natural environments.

The Torrey Pines Natural Reserve Docent Society and Torrey Pines Association present the second annual Art in the Pines to be held Sunday, May 15, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. The Festival is free and open to all.

Art in the Pines is an all-day event featuring a professionally judged Plein Air contest with an awards ceremony; artists’ booths exhibiting nature-inspired art for sale in a variety of media such as painting, pastels, drawing, sculpture, ceramics, and photography; food and live music; children’s nature and art activities; an opportunity drawing for donated artwork; guided nature walks; tours of the historic Torrey Pines Lodge; and expert demonstrations in several different artistic mediums.

A free shuttle will run from the reserve’s North Beach and South Beach parking lots. The event is free, but the parking lots are $10 per car or a valid annual pass. Additional parking will be available at National University located just south of the Reserve at 11255 North Torrey Pines Road La Jolla, CA 92037. Guests are strongly encouraged to consider walking to the event (15 minute walk uphill from south parking lot, 10 minute level walk from National University parking lot).

Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve is located between La Jolla and Del Mar, California, north of San Diego. From Hwy 5, exit on Carmel Valley Road and drive west for about 1.5 miles till you reach the Coast Highway 101. Turn left and proceed along the beach for about a mile. The park entrance is on your right just before the highway begins to climb the Torrey Pines grade.
