Click here for a slideshow from Art San Diego opening night.

The Art San Diego Contemporary Art Fair rolled in and out of town and, by most accounts, was a success. Overheard at the fair:

“This is waaaay better than last year’s fair,” said by multiple people at the VIP opening night celebration.

“I’m seeing a lot of red dots,” said by my husband.

“There’s actually some really interesting art here,” said by a happily surprised San Diego artist and collector.

“So, couldn’t make the Art in the City conference, eh? It was good,” said by someone disappointed in me for going to a meeting with my banker and a doctor’s appointment that day instead.

The Bankers Collective storefront

If you’ve been to SRO lately (one of my favorite drag bars in town), you may have noticed a nearby store window filled with what could be considered art. And, in fact, it is art, brought to you by the good people of Bankers Block Collective, a new arts group in town.  Friend ’em on Facebook and keep tabs on what this group is doing.

ArtHatch, a nonprofit dedicated to exposing young folk toart and creativity,is up for a grant through Pepsi’s Refresh Everything Contest now through Sept. 30.  Vote now. Vote twice (once online and once via text) and help ArtHatch founder and CEO, Melissa Inez Walker, help young artists hone their skills. If, like me, you have trouble finding the project and get confused by all the Pepsi-ness going on everywhere, email melissa@distinctionart.com for more info.

A piece by Neil Poyuzina

San Diego artist Neil Simon Poyuzina passed away recently. On his Facebook page, his mother asked people to send her pictures.  According to a recent post by Donna Poyuzina, Los Angeles police are “looking very strongly into foul play with our son.”
