Since November 2018, when it had to leave its showplace in the Del Mar Plaza, the Del Mar Art Center has been looking for a new home. In the meanwhile they have teamed up with Del Mar Farmers Market for a monthly exhibition called “Art with a View.” From 1 to 4pm on the last Saturday of each month you can find a number of members from the non-profit artists cooperative on the upper level of the DM Civic Center, showing their work and discussing it with whoever comes by. A portion of the proceeds benefits the Farmers Market and DMAC’s chosen non-profit for 2019, Helen Woodward Animal Center.

Maidy Morhous, well-known sculptor in bronze, is president of the group, which at a recent Art with a View was represented, among others, by Julianne Ricksecker, who works in a number of painting and graphic media; Joan Thurburn, ceramics; Rosemary Valenti, Claudia Versiani, Bob Cradic, oil painters; and Mark Sherman watercolors. Music is provided as well.

The DMAC started in 1998. It supports younger artists with scholarship and art supply donations. Other venues where they are currently showing their works include Del Mar Cinepolis in the DM Highlands shopping center and Chase Bank in Del Mar. Maidy Morhous reports, “We have an offer in on space in Del Mar and the Del Mar Rotary Club has said it will sponsor us to the tune of a $5000 donation.”
This local artists group is an under-appreciated community resource. Stop by at the Farmers Market and enjoy their work. Online, visit www.dmacgallery.com.
