Patricia's Exhibiton update for July

Thanks go Naomi Nussbaum and the SD Botanic Gardens for hosting us at the opening of the Sculpture in the Garden reception in memory of Dennis Paul Batt. It was a glorious day and a stellar group of local sculptors including Alber and Luna de Mattius, Matt Devine, Dan Peragine, Jeffery Laudenslager, Amos Robinson, Madelynne Engle, Cheryl Tall, Charles Bronson, Ben Lavender, Fritzie Urquhart and Becky Guttin…all friends of SDVAN. But there were many more to admire including two that sold that day by Victoria Johnson. This is a wonderful place to take children this summer. Don’t miss it.

We were also entertained by Vicki Leon at the Bernardo Winery for a performance at The Vine (Mojalet Dance Place for the Arts.)  Vicki was showing the last of three Quilts of Life happenings before her exhibition in October at Noel Baza. We got to see the interaction of the dancers with her dichromatic etched glass discs. This work in progress is funded by the SD Foundation.  Bernardo Winery (founded 1889!) has a whole collection of fun galleries and shops and holds an art walk once a month and Mojalet has a performance every weekend in the summer. We were so pleased to see such a wonderful resource hidden away in a neighborhood in Rancho Bernardo.

We are going to the Old Globe to see Divine Rivalry describes as a painting competition between Leonardo de Vinci and Michelangelo organized by Machiavelli.(until Aug 5)  If you can’t make that, check out Kettner Nights. And the in August we are going to RED which is about the life of Rothko at the Mark Taper Forum in LA.
