First of all, I’d like to express my appreciation and gratitude to Kelsey, for the hard work and TLC she put into this incredible site. Time and again, I’ve been absolutely floored by the sights, sounds and flavors of San Diego, and I owe a lot of that to the “insider secrets” she’s revealed here… secrets that I otherwise would have never discovered. It’s an honor to have an opportunity to give back, and hopefully grace the tip of the ice-burg that is America’s Finest City.
That being said I’d like to talk about our chance to check out an exhibit of one of San Diego’s own artistic secrets: James Hubbell, a sculptor, painter, architect, and poet, who’s public work can be seen in Pacific Beach, Mission Bay, Clairemont, and all throughout southern California. “In Search Of Shadows: James Hubbell Sculpture” runs from this month to June 2nd at the Oceanside Museum of Art. If you’ve travelled throughout San Diego for a while, you will recognize some of his popular architecture.
“In Search Of Shadows: James Hubbell Sculpture” is the first museum exhibition focusing on Hubbell’s sculptural oeuvre, and showcases over 50 years of his work. More than 30 sculptures are featured, revealing his dominance of many different mediums like stone, glass, wood and bronze. The works on display range from his 100 pound bronze sculptures to articulately crafted wooden works of fine art. Also watch for his new bronze gate welcoming visitors to the exhibition.
This exhibition is taking place at the Oceanside Museum of Art, 704 Pier View Way, Oceanside, Ca 92054 and can be viewed 10am to 4pm Monday through Saturday and 1pm to 4pm on Sundays until June 2nd.
