Art in the Pines festival to expand its offerings for 2013

From Docent Society reports

The fourth annual “Art in the Pines” juried plein-air show presented by the Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve Docent Society and Torrey Pines Association is set for 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 4; and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday, May 5 at the Reserve, just south of the Torrey Pines Lodge.

This year, for the first time, artist participation was open to all California residents. The 2013 event will feature the work of more than 50 artists from well-known masters of the landscape to new talent.

Throughout the park there will also be artist booths with nature-inspired art for sale in a variety of media — painting, pastels, drawing, sculpture, ceramics and photography. There will also be food, musical entertainment, children’s art activities, a raffle and silent auction, guided nature walks, tours of the historic Torrey Pines Lodge, and expert demonstrations in painting and basket weaving.

Guests are encouraged to hike the Reserve during all of April and the beginning of May to observe dozens of artists at work. Their paintings will be judged and awarded cash prizes and ribbons at noon on Saturday and then be available for sale the weekend of the festival.

Art in the Pines provides opportunities for individuals, community organizations, foundations and businesses to support children’s nature programs at the Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve. That model program serves 4,000 children in the San Diego area every year with an exemplary outdoor experience tied to the school curriculum.

The event is free, but there is a charge for parking. The Reserve has two parking lots, South Beach and North Beach. The lot closest to the event is the South Beach Lot

where there will be preferred parking for $20 per car.

Guests will not be able to use annual passes of any kind on Saturday and Sunday in the South Lot. In the North Lot, guests will be able to use passes on those days or the charge is $10 per car.

A free shuttle will run frequently from both lots, or guests may enjoy walking to the event. It is a 15-minute walk from the South Beach Parking Lot.

Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve located between La Jolla and Del Mar. The park entrance is on the right just before the highway begins to climb the Torrey Pines grade. The street address is 12600 North Torrey Pines Road.
