New exhibit at Del Mar Art Gallery

Guests mingle at the opening reception for 3rd quarter artwork at the Del Mar Art Center.

The Del Mar Art Gallery, in its 16th year at the Del Mar Plaza, offers excitingly diverse artwork from 38 of San Diego’s best artists. The artwork ranges from impressionistic, modern abstract, surrealism to hyper-realism. Also offered is jewelry, from hammered silver and copper made by silversmith’s to fine stone jewelry. Pedestals throughout the gallery display sculpture and ceramic pieces of artwork. The artists range from emerging to middle career.

The gallery celebrated the introduction of its third quarter artwork Aug. 6 to a packed crowd eager to see the new display. Maidy Morhous, an internationally-known bronze sculptor, and president of the gallery, was on hand to answer questions and introduce artists. Four new artists –Jeffrey Brosbe (photography), Matt Hillenbrand (marquetry), Bruce Swart (watercolor) and Thomas O’Mary (oil) –were on hand to meet art collectors, friends and local residents who dropped by, as were many of the other artist members.
