La Jolla Arts Faire to Benefit the Disabled

More than $2 million in watercolors, oils, photographs, jewelry and sculpture will be offered for sale June 2-3 at the La Jolla Festival of the Arts and Food Faire.

The fourth annual fund-raiser to benefit programs for the disabled will include the work of more than 100 U.S. artists and gourmet foods from around the world, according to sponsors. The festival is organized by the Torrey Pines Kiwanis Foundation and the Easter Seal Society of San Diego County.

Nature watercolors by Diane Clapp Bartz, reliefs by Andy Lakey, Southwest plain air paintings by Darwin Dunkin, Oriental watercolors by Frank Gikiu, rural scenes in a variety of media by Guy Bernardo, photographs by Dallas Clites, papier-mache by Glorya and Gene Schklair, and cloisonne by Stanley Tiger will be among the pieces display.

Proceeds from the two-day festival will benefit a disabled skier scholarship program, a karate program for people with disabilities, a wheelchair marathon team, and other programs. The skier program sends disabled people to the Purgatory ski area near Durango, Colo. to learn snow skiing.


The weekend festival will be held at the La Jolla Country Day School, 9490 Genesee Ave., 9 a.m-6 p.m. on Saturday and 9:30 a.m.-5 p.m. on Sunday. Admission is $2.50.
