Art Guild exhibit opens in Chula Vista

September 2, 2017 by  

The work of local artists will soon go on display temporarily in Chula Vista, at the Chula Vista Center mall, located at H Street and Broadway.

Members of the Chula Vista Art Guild plan to display their works in a vacant space there, bringing a new offering to the San Diego area.

Alfred R. Mitchell, a California artist who is known for his impressionistic works, founded the guild in 1945 with an eye to devoting the organization’s energy to artistic and cultural pursuits. Mitchell, a San Diego resident, would travel to Chula Vista to paint, as well as to teach.

Over the years, members of the guild interacted with both Chula Vista residents and the city council, and displayed their works in Memorial Park, Rohr Park, and the city’s downtown area. Today, the guild continues its relationship with the city by providing art programs to residents, and hosting demonstrations by visiting artists.

The exhibit now in place at the center is open every day from 1:00 pm until 7:00 pm through September 15. Admission is free, and all the artwork is for sale. A reception for the artists will be held next Saturday, September 9, from 3:00 pm until 5:00 pm.

When events like this include a number of objects, organizers might consider working with a brochure printing company, which can create an illustrated booklet that shows each object and gives a description of the work.
