I was wandering all over Balboa Park today when I saw a sign on El Prado. A free art show was being held inside the Casa del Prado!

What I discovered was pretty cool. Lots of really fine art, created by members of the Art Club of San Diego. Every year they have an exhibit in Balboa Park, and I was told taking photos was just fine. So here the photos are–and I hope many people enjoy them! Please note the name of the artist if you happen to be taken by a particular piece.

The Art Club of San Diego showcased the work of their artists in Balboa Park. Art styles included Sumie (ink wash painting), Ceramic and unusual, highly creative Art Forms.
