3 Must-see Galleries at Art San Diego
The Art San Diego experience begins the second you step out of your car. Before you even enter the Wyland Center, you’ll pass through San Diego-based artist Sarah Stieber’s captivating new “Rainbow Ribbon Magic” series. Once inside, you’ll connect with other art-loving attendees, discover cutting-edge art, and enjoy thought-provoking programming.
One of the biggest reasons we moved Art San Diego to the Wyland Center is that the venue gives us room—30,000 square feet, to be exact—to showcase exceptional artistic talent. Here’s a sneak peek at a few of the must-see galleries that are making their Art San Diego debut Sept. 28–Oct. 1.
A contemporary fine art gallery based in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, Artblend features a diversity in paintings, photography, and sculpture by artists from around the world. From award-winning paintings by Stephen Kenneth Hackley to surreal sculptures by Jean-Jacques Porret, Artblend’s artists work in various mediums, subjects, styles, colors, and sizes.
Bruce Lurie Gallery
Bruce Lurie Gallery is known for its focus on establishing emerging to mid-career artists. In the early 1980s in New York’s East Village, Bruce Lurie gave Jean-Michel Basquiat his first show. Today, the Los Angeles-based gallery, located in Culver City’s “Art District,” specializes in street art, abstract minimalism, pop art, photography, and monumental sculpture.
Founded in 2011 by abstract painter Aleta Pippin, Pippin Contemporary features artists who create “a sensory experience of color and mood” in everything from paintings to digital art to glass and sculptures. Named the Best Gallery in New Mexico by Thom Bierdz of the American Art Awards in 2014, the famed Santa Fe gallery presents an uplifting world of vibrant color as expressed in contemporary art.
