On a sunny Sunday afternoon in late June, about 80 members and friends of the Contemporary Arts Committee, a support group of the San Diego Museum of Art in Balboa Park, gathered for a garden party, silent auction, light bites and wine in the spacious La Jolla home of a couple of ardent art-lovers.

Hospitality chairman Patti Cooprider presided over the edibles, with the help of Garrianne Brandt and Margaret Priske, and guests wandered through the indoor and outdoor areas, admiring an impressive collection of contemporary art. The annual garden party caps off a year of events, which includes monthly meetings at members’ homes, artist talks, and sometimes, studio tours.

“SDMA is not just a staid old venue,” said Evey Solomon, a member of the group. “It also has a wonderful contemporary area that deserves publicizing. And that’s one of the things we’re trying to do.” For more about the Contemporary Arts Committee, contact membership chair Robin Lipman at (858) 794-7968.
