Rancho Santa Fe Art Guild to hold final reception at current location May 9


The public is invited to a very special reception at the Rancho Santa Fe Art Gallery on Thursday, May 9, from 5-7 p.m.

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 Rancho Santa Fe Art Gallery is located at the Union Bank Building at 6004 Paseo Delicias, Rancho Santa Fe. (Entrance on the west side of the building.)

The reception will feature the work of Encinitas artist and guild member Julie Finch. Other guild members will also display their new works. Music will be provided by two young violinists. Special hors d’oeuvres and beverages will be served.

“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,” RSF 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. Please contact: President Kim Doherty at 858-385-0603 or Gallery Director Barbara Dawson at 858-356-7497.
