Stroll along the charming downtown district, and find unique art galleries dotting the blocks from premier Prospect Street to Girard Avenue. Here’s a quick look at some of the most locally loved spots to admire artwork.
LIK LA JOLLA - Peter Lik Fine Art Gallery: Peter Lik has a renowned reputation as a masterful photographer. Get a sense of how he works behind the lens with his spectacular use of lighting and color. On the first Friday of every month, you can come by for wine and cheese. Don’t forget to check out the back rooms, with dimming lights that give the photos a distinctly luminous look.
Peerless Fine Art: Just a short jaunt from Lik’s famous photos, you can explore the Peerless Fine Art gallery. With modern décor, each snapshot is striking against the black walls.
The Madison Gallery: If you’re already downtown, don’t miss this neat spot that features inventive artists. Walk through the progressive art gallery, and take a moment to admire the ambiance with high ceilings, Zen-like décor, and an ocean view patio.
Quint Contemporary Art: Not far from Prospect St., you’ll come across Girard Ave. The curator at Quint finds diverse art to display, with pieces that can inspire you to create your own art or think outside-the-box about aesthetic appeal. Owner Mark Quint has been involved in the San Diego Art Community for nearly three decades.
