Venue Features
The Scene:
Located in the historic Green Dragon Colony, The La Jolla Gallery sits atop one of the communities oldest townships. Irving Gill was commissioned to build a home on Prospect Street in the 1890s and construction on the cliff side property continued well into 1906 and by the time he was finished there were eleven small cottages – all of which were dedicated to the arts. This grouping was the famous Green Dragon Camp, later re-named the Green Dragon Colony, and was the source of some of the finest art work to come from San Diego. Artists, musicians, and writers were allowed to live in the cottages for free. With that same unique romantic nature, The La Jolla Gallery encompasses that same cozy charm in todays art world.
When we took over this space at 1274 Prospect our vision was clear, a clean and contemporary space was what we set out to accomplish. With walls to build, walls to extract and walls to paint it proved to be a much bigger project than we anticipated but came with a big reward. The gallery is a space that must do one thing perfectly and that is let the art do what it needs to do. With a unique multi room floor plan, the interior sparks energy and warmth throughout. With our Collectors seen as a family, we were fortunate to transform the upstairs area to create a Collectors Lounge where the celebration of acquisitions is had by all. With the wonders of technology, the lounge also provides Apple TV where content can be preselected for viewing from iPad/electronic device. The result is a gallery that is welcoming, progressive and truly one of a kind.
