2015 Mother's Day Weekend Art, Garden & Studio Tour
May 9 & 10 from 10 am to 4 pm each day
The San Dieguito Art Guild, a non-profit group that celebrates its 50th Anniversary this year, hosts their 2015 Mother’s Day Weekend Art, Garden & Studio Tour. This is a self-guided, driving tour on Saturday and Sunday, Mother’s Day weekend, May 9 and 10, from 10am to 4pm each day. Tickets are good for both days and homes may be re-visited.
Take your mom or best friends on a leisurely tour of the 10 North County homes where you can peek into an assortment of fascinating artists’ studios, peruse more then 30 unique exhibits of locally made art, and relax in each unique coastal garden. Artists from the San Dieguito Art Guild will be positioned in the gardens — showing and selling their paintings, ceramics, glass, gourd art, fiber arts, photography, jewelry, and much more. Free refreshments will be served at every stop.
The 10 homes are within easy driving distance in the Encinitas area. Many feature working artists’ studios. Four homes have full, drop-dead, gorgeous, 180 degree ocean views. Each home is as unique as the artists and owners are. This year’s tour chair, Laura Lowenstein says, “The art guild is gearing up for another wonderful tour of local homes with talented artists placed in each garden. We’re focusing on creating a warm and welcoming experience for families and friends to enjoy themselves surrounded by natural beauty and art.”
This event is the major fund-raiser of the year for the San Dieguito Art Guild. Without funds from this tour the Guild would operate at a loss. Tickets are $20 per person and may be purchased at the Off Track Gallery or at www.OffTrackGallery.com (available after April 1) or at each home both days of the tour. This is a favorite tour of many San Diegans, many of whom take this tour year after year.
In keeping with their Mission Statement — The San Dieguito Art Guild is an organization dedicated to furthering artistic understanding and fostering artistic growth of members and the community at large by promoting interest, education, knowledge and skills in the visual arts — 10% of the net proceeds from the tour will be awarded to four promising students from MiraCosta College, Oceanside.
