Day 2 of ASD: A Festive Friday at Balboa Park
The first full show day at Art San Diego went swimmingly, thanks to the crowds of eager attendees that graced the aisles in search of inspiration and amazing artwork to take home. Our Meet the Artist events, featuring Chris Dellorco, Jens Rossen, and one of this year’s Spotlight Artists, Jeremy Sicile-Kira, were a hit, as each artist incorporated a live demonstration into their session, giving viewers an intimate, firsthand look at the artistic process. For Jeremy, this was his first live painting demo ever—look for him in Booth 119 today at 1:00 p.m. for another live demo, just added to the schedule!
Beautiful sculpture appeared at every turn, from Maidy Morhous’s figurative bronze pieces to Siri Hollander’s impressive equine forms. Siri’s sculptural medium combines steel and cement, creating her trademarked texture that, when cast in bronze, brings her sculptures to life. And she sold a piece on Friday! Congrats to Siri and the many other artists who are finding sales success at ASD.
What’s happening later today? Check out Saturday’s robust schedule here for a complete list of Meet the Artist sessions and other events, including an Art Talk at 3:00 p.m. featuring Ruth-Ann Thorn of Empress Contemporary Gallery and an Art Lab performance at 7:00 p.m. entitled “Heroic Procession,” combining visual art with violin music and Japanese Butoh dance in an exploration of migration and movement. And don’t miss the Young Collectors’ Night! Plenty of Louis Jadot wine will be on hand as the beats of DJ Christopher London fill the evening air, giving you a chance to unwind and mingle with other showgoers.
