Art Guild members to install show at Encinitas center


Ten members of the San Dieguito Art Guild recently installed a show in the Encinitas Community and Senior Center.

The title of this three-dimensional show is “Form, Volume, Mass, and Texture.” Form is an object that can be defined in three dimensions (height, width, and depth). Volume is the space filled or enclosed by the three-dimensional figure or object. Mass is a volume that has, or gives the illusion of having, weight, density, and bulk. Texture is the surface quality of a work — for example fine/coarse, detailed/lacking in detail. These are the key aspects of three-dimensional art.

The show, which consists of 42 pieces of original artwork, is in the lighted cabinet in the hallway of the Community and Senior Center, 1140 Oakcrest Park Drive, Encinitas, and runs from now until Wednesday, May 4. The Community and Senior Center is open Monday through Saturday, 8 a.m. - 10 p.m. and Sunday, 12 p.m.- 5 p.m. The Community Center phone number is (760) 943-2260. This exhibit is free and open to the public. All pieces in the show are for sale and available by contacting the artists directly. Contact information is listed on a small card next to each piece.

Members participating in the show are: Lynn Ely, fiber arts; Bobbi Hirschkoff, glass; Carol Korfin (guild president), glass; Harvey Korfin, recycled computer parts clocks; Karen Fidel, pottery; Carla Funk, ceramics; Sandy Heath, copper and wood; Grace Swanson, gourd art; Kate O’Brien, glass; and Terry Oshrin, mosaics.

These 10 artists represent the over 200 members of the San Dieguito Art Guild, a non-profit group who owns and operates the Off Track Gallery located at 937 South Coast Highway 101, in the Lumberyard Shopping Center, downtown Encinitas. (760) 942-3636. Visit for more information.
