Founders’ Show Gala Reception @ Destination: Art

September 28, 2019

Destination: Art presents the Founders’ Show Gala Reception on Saturday, September 28 from 3 to 6 p.m.

The event features the original artists who had a new idea for art lovers and collectors to view and buy local art from local artists in one studio and community. The returning Founders include Lois Olsen, Lorene Barker, Ann Rode, Joy Gonzalez, Rosemary Bandes and Richard Stephens.

The event will also honor the Founders who are still creating and exhibiting at Destination: Art: Suzanne, Kuuskmae, Al Hagan, Vickie Sekits, Linda Thompson, Jean Comings, Margaret Lindsey, and current President, Dave Wolfram.

“This is a milestone for Destination: Art,” says Wolfram. “These artists got us started, and their talent, vision and drive contributed to our becoming a vital part of the Southern California art scene.”

Scholb Brewery in Torrance will partner in the celebration by donating several premium artisan beers. A family owned company, Scholb creates a wide variety of fresh, high-quality beers, many in the bold and hoppy West Coast tradition, with others following old world styles. The Scholb Tap Room is a standout in the craft beer industry.

“Our patrons are sophisticated South Bay residents who appreciate the finer things, including quality craft beer and art.” said owner Jason Kolb. “We are happy to partner with our Torrance neighbor, Destination: Art to celebrate their success.”

Destination: Art is the recipient of the 2018 Excellence in Arts Awards, Visual Arts & Design from the Torrance Cultural Arts Commission. It has contributed widely to civic activities and is a member of the Downtown Torrance Association.

The Founders Show is on exhibit September 28 through November 3, 2019. Guests at the Gala Reception on September 28, must be 21 to enjoy beverages.
