December 7, 2018 – January 5 , 2019
The year is almost over and we have summed it all up, we have hung approximately 600 works of art in the Municipal Gallery exhibitions this year, and with the Emerging Artists Student exhibition, all the group and solo shows in the Expressions Galleries, the Photo Arts Group, the hall walls and studio spaces we could say we have seen over a thousand new works by San Diego artists displayed, admired and sold at the Escondido Arts Partnership. Thank You artists, supporters and all of you art enthusiasts for making the EAP what it is today.
The much anticipated Summation 2018 art exhibition is here so get your pen and paper ready to write poetry inspired by the artworks. The PhotoArts Group photography exhibition takes a Shot in the Dark in the InnerSpace Gallery.
A Mingei International Museum off-site installation is on loan to the
Escondido Arts Partnership Municipal Gallery, The installation is a colorful restaurant scene created by artesana Zenaida Rafael Julián from Ocumicho, Mexico Created in 2006, this elaborately conceived work depicts a bustling restaurant at lunchtime, with four tables of hungry diners eating tacos, burritos and sopes, while busy waitresses, a tortilla maker, and other figures enliven the scene.
We are very grateful and honored to have received a grant from the Escondido Charitable Foundation for our “Local Color Project.” We are going to have a mural installed on the side of the gallery created by a local artist see the call to artists here. The “Local Color” mural will entice visitors to Grand Avenue with a visual exploration of the essence and culture of Escondido. As a two part project we have also included a children’s program for “Local Color” flags that will be created and displayed publicly at the Tuesday Escondido Certified Farmer’s Market where their artistic voices will flutter in the breeze at Heritage Garden and at special events through out the year. On behalf of the EAP’s Board of Directors, staff, EAP members, and community
we thank The Escondido Charitable Foundation,
for giving us the opportunity to bring this gift of art to Escondido.
