Lux Art Institute welcomes new artist


The Lux Art Institute held an opening reception Sept. 9 for Colombian artist Camilo Restrepo. Lux Art Institute will feature five artists from all over the world coming for residency in its 10th anniversary season, beginning with Restrepo.

In residency now through Oct. 2 (the exhibition runs through Oct. 29), Restrepo will work on two separate pieces created from collected newspaper clippings and drawings from his personal sketchbooks. These works will focus on concepts of failure and appropriation in relation to the drug-trade, and will be exhibited at ArtBo in Bogotá upon their completion. The Lux Art Institute is located at 1550 S. El Camino Real, Encinitas. For more information, visit
