This week's issue of CityBeat highlights a handful of solid North County art exhibits and events. First and foremost is the cover art by Michael McAlister, who just happens to be our upcoming featured artist. Sarah Nardi writes a thoughtful review that actually takes his art as its object (somewhat rare for San Diego arts writing). McAlister's show opens Monday November 23, and we will host an artist reception at the gallery on December 5, 2009. Read Nardi's piece here. Also you can preview McAlister's works on display at the gallery here.
CityBeat points out that "Along with the Andrews Gallery and Project X, the Eric Phleger Gallery is bringing much more than paintings of dolphins to the North County art scene." This Thursday there is an opening for a special exhibition at our neighboring gallery that exclusively features artists living in the 92024 and 92007 zip codes. An excellent idea.

Friday night will be another installation of the storied Art After Dark nights at the Oceanside Museum of Art (7:00 - 10:00 PM). Your $15 admissions ticket ($10 for members) will get you a palm reading and a buffet of sushi, pizza, and beer from local establishments along with live music, special installations, and OMA's current exhibition of UCSD graduate artists.
