Guild marks 45 years of art


The artists of the San Dieguito Art Guild will host a 45th Anniversary Party from 5 to 8 p.m. on June 19 at the Off Track Gallery in the Lumberyard Shopping Center, 937 S. Coast Highway (next to St. Tropez and Starbucks) in Encinitas.

The first 45 guests will receive a greeting card made by a guild member. Refreshments will be served. The public is welcome.

The guild was organized in 1965 by a group of 12 artists who lived in the San Dieguito area (the coastal cities from Del Mar to Leucadia). Their purpose was to promote greater understanding and appreciation of the fine arts locally. For the full history, visit
