Arts Alive banners to be on display for community viewing
Appreciation for the arts doesn’t pause for COVID-19. Neither does the 101 Artists’ Colony signature program of two decades, Arts Alive Encinitas. Since mid-March, 62 original works of art have been flying over a six-mile stretch of Coast Highway through Leucadia, Encinitas and Cardiff-by-the-Sea.
On Saturday, Aug. 1 and Sunday, Aug. 2 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., a free community viewing of these banners will be held – socially distanced – at E101 Marketplace, 459 S Coast Hwy 101, Encinitas. Silent auction bids will be recorded. (No live auction this year.)
The 2020 Arts Alive Exhibit will be displayed in the Cardiff Town Center (next to the Seaside Market) on Sunday, Aug. 9 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Silent auction bids will be recorded. (No live auction this year.)
These original paintings were created by talented local artists in the community. New this year is a video that scrolls through all of the banner creations at 101artistscolony.com. To place a bid, call 760-473-5164 before Tuesday, Aug.11, 2020 at 5 p.m.
The 101 Artists’ Colony has persevered throughout the shutdowns and quarantines of the COVID-19 pandemic to bring Arts Alive to the community once again. This year’s Arts Alive sponsors are Hansen Surfboards, Seaside Market and Leucadia 101 Mainstreet Association.
