Sip and Sketch Holiday Art Class

Sip, sketch, and color at our holiday art class with archaeological illustrator Donna Walker. Learn how to draw the native plant Toyon Berry, also known as California Holly, then color your creation with Prismacolor, an oil-based color pencil that blends and looks like watercolor when finished. You’ll learn techniques to give your objects depth and definition – gone will be the flat-looking images, yours will look 3-D! Finish by turning your drawing into a personalized holiday card.

Tickets include all art supplies and 2 drinks per person. 21+ only

About the Presenter: Donna Walker is an artist and archaeological illustrator based in Valley Center, CA. Recently, she has worked on projects for the Anthropology Department at UCSD illustrating Neolithic, Chalcolithic, and Bronze Age ceramics from Israel and Jordan.

A Splendid Decennium: Victorian to Vanguard

Mar 22 - Apr 27, 2024

he Gaslamp Museum at the Davis-Horton House is thrilled to announce the new exhibit, “A Splendid Decennium: Victorian to Vanguard.” The exhibit will infuse the House with works from internationally-acclaimed fiber artist Marty Ornish, exploring a decade of political, environmental, and feminist perspectives through textile art. 

“A Splendid Decennium: Victorian to Vanguard” is a retrospective exhibit in two parts, uniting two historical jewels, the Gaslamp Museum at the Davis-Horton House and the Villa Montezuma Museum. The exhibition will span both properties and can be viewed separately, but guests are encouraged to visit both for a comprehensive experience of MartyO’s work.

The Maritime Museum of San Diego invites you to join us for Tall Ship adventure sailing! This is a four-hour adventure history sail aboard the schooner Californian.

Passengers will be invited to haul a line, man the helm and watch the crew as they scamper up and down the rigging to set and furl the sails.

Duke Windsor: “Reflections”

Apr 1 - Apr 28, 2024

Sparks Gallery is pleased to show new work by artist Duke Windsor in his collection “Reflections”. Join us for the reception on Sunday, April 14, 2024 from 5-8pm. RSVP at https://sparksgallery.com/rsvp?eid=44364. 

Duke Windsor’s success as a contemporary artist lies in his ability to infuse ordinary subject matter with his own ingenuity. To commemorate 30 years as a professional working artist in San Diego, this series, titled “Reflections”, focuses on the city’s streets. Each painting is gilded with lustrous gold leaf, a technique inspired by that used for old Russian icons. By delivering a kind of sacred designation to these secular, worldly scenes in his art, Windsor implores the viewer to rethink what is deemed as valuable and treasured in our everyday environment.
