1484228_232602606942924_1624702697_nIf you’ve ever been curious about how to become part of the art world, how to get your art out there, or even if you just like looking at what other people are up to creatively, this is a great place to to do so: Friday, March 14th from 7pm – 9pm, the La Jolla Lutheran Church will be hosting its 5th community Art Exhibit. The show will feature twelve artists from around the community who will begin by talking about their work and answering questions. A presentation of highlights from art fairs at Armory Week in New York will follow, during which attendees will get the chance to meet other artists, collectors, and people just generally interested in art – all in a fun, casual, and relaxed environment.

Budding artists are encouraged by the church to apply anytime before the event on March 14th, and can show up to five or six pieces. Just fill out an application form, submit that and some photos of your work, and email them to

Art exhibits now happen at the church every month, and will continue to showcase new 1607028_222787941257724_729353469_nartists and highlight art fairs from around the world. With a congregation size of only 75, a staff of two, and one pastor – Mark Dahle – these monthly shows are a remarkable tribute to the church’s dedication to La Jolla’s culture and sense of community.

Our very own Vanessa Turkeltaub will be presenting her work at the show! And don’t worry, there’s still time to submit your work, art aficionados. Will you be submitting any pieces this year? Let us know in the comments or on Facebook.
