A Popular Pop-Up Art Gallery appears in Rancho Santa Fe

When Rancho Santa Fe resident and Realtor Janet Lawless Christ was presented with the listing at 16354 Via Del Alba she was met with a dilemma. What to do with a beautiful 2008 soft contemporary residence that was built by art lovers but now stands vacant?

Staging with furniture that likely would not adequately showcase the expansive art walls and gallery-quality lighting did not seem to the trick. That’s when the concept of a “Pop Up Art Gallery” came to mind. And like all ideas that are simply meant to thrive, the magic ensued. She was able to engage professional artists/photographers Joe Rojas, Christine Finkelson and John Bryant, along with nearly 30 local artists who are devoted students of master art teacher Jeffrey Pollack.

Bliss was in the air during the opening soirée, with live music by Israel Moldanado, which was held at the property on Saturday, Nov. 18. It was a smashing success, drawing over 200 attendees. Beginning Sunday, Nov. 19 and continuing during following weekend open houses or by appointment, the “gallery” will remain open to the public until the property is sold.

“It is euphoric to see so much talent and pure joy on display!” said Janet Lawless Christ. “The property truly has been transformed into an engaging and delightful gallery indeed!”

For more information or to schedule a viewing, please call or text Janet at 858-335-7700.
