Event Description Saturday, March 4, 2023 9:00 am - 5:00 pm // Join Grace in creating a small basket made from Long Leaf pine needles, using Crawford waxed Irish linen, small beads, and a stone center. This meditative process produces a beautiful and useful product. As Grace states: “I love artwork that uses natural materials. It provides a break from the modern era, and creates a grounding sense of things past.” You will learn about: ~ Differences between pine needle types ~ Preparing the needles ~ Waxed Irish linen ~ Basket centers ~ Embellishing your basket ~ How to start and how to finish your basket Presenter: Grace Swanson Growing up in Nigeria gave Grace a unique exposure to the creation of useful everyday items using the natural materials that were readily available. She received her Graphic Arts Degree from SDSU, pursued a career as a graphic artist, and was a botanical watercolorist before discovering her passion for gourd and pine needle art.

The event celebrates the city’s diverse visual art scene at participating locations — of which the Off Track Gallery is one — and is free to the public. Enjoy live music and light refreshments at several locations. Art Night Encinitas was conceived by the Commission for the Arts to bring focus to our civic art galleries and thriving visual art scene. The tri-monthly art open house benefits artists through the sale of their art and provides the public an opportunity to interact with artists and learn about the creative process. All artwork that is currently in the Off Track Gallery will be on sale for 10% off all day Saturday, March 4, from 10 am until closing. The Off Track Gallery is owned and operated by the San Dieguito Art Guild, a non-profit, 501(c)3 organization made up of over 200 talented local artists.
