Art Guild holds final reception at longtime home


The Rancho Santa Fe Art Gallery held its last reception May 9 at its longtime location in the Union Bank building in the RSF village. The gallery will be closing its doors on June 1, 2013, after 15 years to make room for the expansion “of our most dedicated supporters Union Bank.”

The reception featured the work of Encinitas artist and guild member Julie Finch. Other guild members also displayed their new works.

“We want to thank our generous benefactors, Union Bank and the Rancho Santa Fe Foundation, have for 15 years graciously provided the space to house the Rancho Santa Fe Art Guild’s gallery,” Rancho Santa Fe Art Guild members said. “The Guild members wish to also thank all of you who have supported us over the years with your enthusiasm, friendship, and generosity.”

While searching for a new gallery space, the Guild plans to continue with activities such as one-day outside art shows, workshops, plein air painting, meetings, and outreach programs.

The guild is soliciting ideas and suggestions for a new gallery space.
