But, interesting, nevertheless. Very friendly people. One artist in residence working while we were there and while I do not have any interest in his work, it was quite amazing to see.

The art gallery is pretty small, I'd guess about the size of a typical living room. Not much to see after a few minutes. It's a nice place to visit if you so happen to be in the area, otherwise it can be a waste...More

Small gallery that gives you the opportunity to interact with the artist creating the artwork. It's worth walking along the short path which features sculptures among the plants

Traveling artists stay in residence for a month or more including working and exhibiting their art. The property is calming and beautiful. There is a most wonderful store on the property with items from artisans.

So fortunate to have them in Encinitas for so many reasons. Art gallery and lectures series, art classes for young and old, and my personal favorite, yoga in the most lovely setting imaginable. Get your inspiration on.

Great spot to visit during family days with artists in residence. Casual art outings that allow children to have hands on experiences. I hear their art camps are fantastic as well!

This unique spot hosts an artist-in-residence, then shows the art that was completed during that time. I spent an enjoyable half hour talking with artist Ann Weber and looking at her finished work. Don't miss the short nature/art trail across the road.
