What makes us unique is the presentation of a wide variety of rotating exhibitions featuring works by nationally, internationally, and regionally recognized artists in a museum style setting with all works for sale.
A unique gallery for regional artists to exhibit two-dimensional art at an affordable rental fee. The space serves as a dining room for the Café and features vibrant walls, a hanging system, and LED lighting. Work displayed in this gallery is enjoyed by Center visitors, meeting attendees, and Café patrons.
The Art Center is busy planning its next exhibition. Please check back soon.
A visually exciting Cafe' featuring a gourmet Mediterranean menu; wine, beer, specialty coffee drinks, and soda fountain treats at our historic soda fountain, one of only two that remain in San Diego County.

I am fascinated with color, pattern, and space. These elements combined with watercolor, paper and acrylic lend themselves well to the images of the earth, the symphony of nature. My current work is the result of this art process.
Richard moved to California in 1995 and started painting for himself in a realistic style with a touch of Russian impressionism. "I admire the Russian Impressionists, especially Nickolai Fechin, for their intense brush strokes that exude passion into their paintings. I also admire Norman Rockwell for his amazing drawing ability and the volume of work he produced in his lifetime." Lastly, Richard admires John Singer Sargent for his portrait work. “His portraits give a sense of reality but still have a painterly style which I hope to aspire to.” Richard works in oils on masonite board. His work is mostly figurative and he has started plein air painting as much as possible. He teaches weekly classes as well as doing demos for most of the Art Associations in San Diego and Riverside counties. Richard's work hangs in galleries in Santa Monica, Idyllwild and Fallbrook, California and Cody, Wyoming. His paintings have won numerous awards from Best of Show to People's Choice.
