The La Jolla Art Association traces its beginnings back to 1918, when a group of local artists and art-lovers started meeting at the home of Ellen Browning Scripps for tea and art-talk. They had their first exhibition in 1919, and in 1921, when a public library (now the Athenaeum) was built at Girard Avenue and Wall Street, they established a gallery there.

Today, after several changes of locations several times, their current space at 8100 Paseo del Ocaso in La Jolla Shores is the site of their Second Annual Black & White Juried Exhibition.

“This is one of the biggest cash award competitions in San Diego, and the quality of the work submitted is overwhelmingly magnificent,” said Jeff Brosbe, director of the exhibition. “In the past 93 years, LJAA has gone from a small group of wealthy people who painted and wanted to share their work with friends and family to a premier artists’ organization.”

Jurors chose 42 pieces from more than 200 submissions, and awards were presented at the artists’ reception Sept. 24. The show will be on display from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily and by appointment through Oct. 15. For more
