Free Saturday At Lux Art Institute

As if this weekend doesn't have enough going on, it's a great weekend in North County, too. Lux Art Institute is having a free Saturday this weekend:

Art lovers and their families are invited to Lux Art Institute’s Free Saturday on June 6. From 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., guests will enjoy an open house with free admission, studio tours and refreshments, and from 12 to 4 p.m., live music by North County-based indie-pop singers Joanie Mendenhall and Alexis Allan.

The afternoon will give visitors a chance to meet Scottish painter Derrick Guild. During his residency, Guild will create a large-scale “label painting” based on a work of 17th-century Spanish master Diego Velázquez, famous for his portraits of royals in the court of King Philip VI..

Lux Liaisons will guide tours through the studio and Guild’s exhibition of hyper-realistic oil paintings and objects, which reference European still life of the 15th to 19th centuries.

Lux Art Institute is located at 1550 South El Camino Real in Encinitas. Parking for Free Saturday is in the Sanderling-Waldorf School parking lot and in posted parking zones along El Camino Real
