Leucadia Things to Do - The NEW Andrews Gallery

The Andrews Gallery in Leucadia (Encinitas) CaliforniaThe word is out and it's good!

Leucadia has a terrific new gallery, officially opening on October 17, 2008 (but you can grab a sneak peak here, or just stop by).

The Andrews Gallery is already receiving quite a bit of attention, and it's not even officially open. I stopped by the other day to meet Drew Snyder and get a first hand look at his new space and his art work. Being an art collector (and past gallery owner myself), my interest was, well, more than passing interest. I love this part of town (and it's right next door to Carlsbad) and having another terrific addition to the community is pretty exciting.

The gallery is in a very cool part of Leucadia (the funky, eclectic north end community of Encinitas), in the same block as my FAVORITE restaurant, Le Papagayo, and next door to a very neat shop, Sanctum. The space has been beautifully transformed and will feature the gallery space as well as studio space for the artist/owner where you can catch a glimpse of work in progress (and perhaps sneak a peak of him working).

Take a moment to visit his website, The Andrews Gallery, for a quick preview.

The Andrews Gallery in Leucadia (Encinitas) CaliforniaDrew has exciting plans for featuring some other artists, offering painting classes, and much more to enhance the arts in Leucadia. And being in the heart of Leucadia is certainly not a bad thing for an artist or gallery, given the growing art community here. It's a challenging time to open a gallery but Drew is off to a great start, with good company close by.

Understand that The Andrews Gallery is not quite in full operation...but October 17 is just a week away! Lighting is in place, signage is up, and the website is fully functional, but the work has not been hung on the walls (but you can enjoy it any way so stop in to chat).

I had a few moments to chat with Drew, and his enthusiasm and excitement about opening his gallery AND being located in funky Leucadia was contagious. I'll leave you to discover the rest on your own.

So why not stop by next FRIDAY, OCTOBER 17 at 7 PM for the opening and reception. I'll see you there.

Plus you can also visit Sanctum, right next door AND dine at Le Papagayo. What a great way to spend Friday night in Leucadia (Encinitas).

"Offering painting classes"? 

What a fabulous idea.  Painting is a lot easier than many think.  Paintings don't have to be good or gallery worthy.  They just have to be yours.

Hi Jeff, I'm in Carlsbad for the week-end so I think I'll drive over and check this out.  I lived in Leucadia for many years, and it has really grown into it's "funky" self :) :)

Lenn - I think it is a terrific idea, too. I  suspect there are many who would love the opportunity to try painting. He also hopes to have poetry readings and other events that will be of interest to this artsy community.

Susie - I know, your photos are awlays stunning.

Kathy - do stop by, and let Drew know where you learned about his gallery. I'll be curious to hear what you think about Leucadia as it is growing up!!

Jeff, from all of the blogs that you have written about cultural events and places to go, one thing is very apparent, and that is that your part of California is not lacking in this area.
