San Dieguito Art Guild honors Small Image Show winners


The San Dieguito Art Guild, which runs the Off Track Gallery, presented ribbons to the winners of its annual Small Image Show and also presented a $500 check to Stardust Arts, a youth art program that provides children with visual art skills, at a reception held Dec. 7.

The annual Small Image Show showcases paintings, photography, drawings, computer arts and more — artwork that measures 12 inches or less in each direction. These smaller images, which are typically more affordable, are offered this time of year — just in time for holiday gift-giving.

The San Dieguito Art Guild, a 501(c)3 nonprofit founded in 1965, is dedicated to furthering artistic understanding and fostering artistic growth of its members and the community by promoting interest, education, knowledge and skills in the visual arts. The Guild celebrates its 50th year anniversary in 2015.

Off Track Gallery is at 937 S. Coast Highway 101, Suite C-103, in the Lumberyard Shopping Center (behind St. Tropez and Starbucks) in downtown Encinitas. Call 760-942-3636; visit
