An interesting hodpodge of various art studios 8/21/2005

This "Spanish-style" art village was built in the 1930s and each artist has their own spot in this collaborative ensemble. I'd recommend going to check out this spot more for its historic value than for the quality of the art. Most of the paintings are overpriced and the subject matter isn't as serious as many other galleries (i.e. dolphins, sunsets, etc.) Nonetheless there are some studios here which are very interesting like the San Diego Enameler's Guild. more

A glimpse into artists and artisan's studios 8/19/2005

The Spanish Village Art Center is tucked away in the northern part of the Pedestrian Mall at Balbo Park -- sort of between the carousel/zoo area and the main drag of museums. Sometimes it can feel a little off the beaten path since the tourists don't seem to amble up there very often. It is set up as a small "village" of artists and craftspeople, with small studios/ retail shops where you can see the artist(s) at work and perhaps buy some of their art. Most of the art is of the painting, ceramic or glass variety. Funkier, larger types of art like metal sculpture or wood pieces are not really represented here. I wish that the artists were a little more cutting edge, as most of this is the sort of of the "craftsy" camp (lots of wind chimes, candle holders, mugs, paintings of flowers etc) -- the type that will offend no one. In fact, I am not really sure where exactly the "real" artist studios are in San Diego now that I think about it. Spanish Village and a few galleries here and there might be as close as you can get to it in San Diego. more

Awesome art community within Balboa Park 8/15/2005

Located within Balboa Park, the Spanish Village Art Center offers about 50 shops and artist studios. You will find a bunch of jewelery, sculpture, and paintings. If you are interested in purchasing something unique, this is the place to go. If you are interested in taking in some amazing art, this is also the place for you. There is also a neat gem "museum" within the village that offers some great jewelery at low prices! more
