Prominent local artist Michael Steirnagle, who divides his time between his studio on Grand Avenue and his second home/studio in Costa Rica, will be judging the show, and entries will adhere to the theme of promoting the pride and promise in the grand City of Escondido, with its diverse landscapes and landmarks providing a cornucopia of subject material for local artists.
The show will run from October 6 ¬– 30 at the Artists Gallery on Grand Avenue. The exhibit will coincide with the Grand Avenue Festival scheduled for Sunday, October 18, thus providing prime exposure for the artists. The Reception and Awards Ceremony, open to the public, will be held at the Artists Gallery on Second Saturday, October 10, 5– 8 p.m. with the awards being presented at 6 p.m. Refreshments will be served.
