I begin once more to post on this site. The interruption has been due to the passing of my Life Mate, My Husband of 57 years. While my world has changed, My Art World has not, thus, I will endeavor to keep our Regional, National and International audience up to date on the changing world of Arts, here in Oceanside and in the North County of San Diego CA.   RJ

The Oceanside Art Walk

The Beautiful City of Oceanside CA has a new and exciting place in the Art World of Public participation. This is the monthly Art Walk in Downtown Oceanside. In the past two months this event has given the local residents and our visitors Nationally and Internationally many venues to explore our North County’s talented artists and the works which makes them unique.

These events are the brain child of our esteemed executive Director of the Oceanside Museum of Art, Daniel Foster. Mr. Foster has given our entire City the inspiration for change in the Arts, which he knew it was capable of accomplishing. His leadership has shaped our Downtown in ways heretofore unknown in Oceanside. A Visionary for the possible is his inner guide, and his presence in Oceanside is a gift to us all.
