Hillcrest CityFest 2013 delights

Posted by George J Janczyn on August 12, 2013

There were lots of San Diego events to choose from on Sunday, but we decided to visit the Hillcrest CityFest street fair because I lived there from the late 70s to mid-80s and have always liked the neighborhood. I shot these pictures between 12-4pm. Naturally, the storm drain warning sign leads since it’s water related. There’s a major sidewalk crack on the west side of 5th Avenue near Pennsylvania that’s an accident waiting to happen as you’ll see shortly. As always, the pictures can be clicked for enlargements and will look best on a decent size display. I hope you enjoy them.

Shoshone Falls makes a splash at the Athenaeum Juried Exhibition

Posted by George J Janczyn on August 6, 2011

The La Jolla Athenaeum Music and Arts Library held its opening reception for the 20th Annual Juried Exhibition last night. Considered one of the most prestigious juried art shows in all of San Diego, the competition is open only to artists who live, work, or have exhibited in San Diego.

I was pleased to learn that my long-time friend and colleague James Soe Nyun was the first prize recipient.

Shoshone Falls, a digital photo based pigment print pictured here, is one of three pieces Jim submitted for the show.

Congratulations Jim!

The exhibition will be on display from August 6 through September 30 with 2-D and 3-D works by 23 local artists. Admission is free.

Juror #1: Kathryn Kanjo, Curator and Head of Curatorial, Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego
Juror #2: Joseph Bellows, Owner of Joseph Bellows Gallery

In addition to the exhibition, you can see some of Jim’s creative work at his website. He also maintains an interesting and informative blog Lost in the Landscape: musings of an artist loosed in a garden where his photographic talent in all things botanic is revealed.

James Soe Nyun and his art.
