Oceanside Museum of Art launches outreach exhibition program in Del Mar at Herbert B. Turner Gallery

Cudahy by Herb Turner

Oceanside Museum of Art is bringing high quality exhibitions and programs into the community and over the coming months will begin establishing satellite venues and forming programmatic partnerships with key local arts groups. As the premier art museum for the North County San Diego region, it is OMA’s responsibility to not only provide programming inside its walls but to also bring art directly to the community. OMA recently announced its first satellite venue opening on Oct. 5 in Del Mar.

OMA in Del Mar at the Herbert B. Turner Gallery at Southfair will present quarterly art exhibitions, receptions, educational programs, and events frequently highlighting the adult and youth art talent in the local and regional area. The museum would like to thank County Supervisor Dave Roberts for his support of this project.

The Unerring Eye: Paintings by Herbert B. Turner and Photographs by H. Montgomery-Drysdale is the inaugural OMA exhibition in the Herbert B. Turner Gallery at Southfair. In a series of display cases, OMA will mount an exhibition that presents the work of two important Del Mar artists, Turner and Montgomery-Drysdale, and their impact on the cultural community of San Diego and beyond. Both Turner and Montgomery-Drysdale were consummate readers of their surrounding environment and were able to translate their interests through the varied mediums of painting and photography.

The exhibition will present approximately 12 paintings by Herbert B. Turner (1926-2010) and 36 photographs by H. Montgomery-Drysdale (1930-2013). Join OMA for the free public reception on Saturday, Oct. 5, from 6-8 p.m. at Southfair, 2010 Jimmy Durante Blvd., in Del Mar. “The Unerring Eye” will be on view at the Herbert B. Turner Galleries at Southfair through Jan. 12, 2014.
For more information call 760-435-3720 or visit www.oma-online.org. The museum is located at 704 Pier View Way in downtown Oceanside, Calif.
