2015 Mother's Day Weekend Art, Garden & Studio Tour - Was a Great Sucess!
The San Dieguito Art Guild, a non-profit group that celebrates its 50th Anniversary this year, hosted their 2015 Mother’s Day Weekend Art, Garden & Studio Tour. This was a self-guided, driving tour on Saturday and Sunday, Mother’s Day weekend, May 9 and 10, 2015 from 10am to 4pm each day.
Artists from the San Dieguito Art Guild were positioned in the gardens — showing and selling their paintings, ceramics, glass, gourd art, fiber arts, photography, jewelry, and much more. Free refreshments were served at every stop.
The 10 homes were within easy driving distance in the Encinitas area. Many featured working artists’ studios. Four homes had full, drop-dead, gorgeous, 180 degree ocean views. Each home was as unique as the artists and owners. The 2015 tour chair, Laura Lowenstein said, “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 were $20 per person and 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.
