As you know, I heart art . . . SO when I receive an invitation to an exhibition opening, there’s no wonder as to why I usually jump at the opportunity :) yes, last Saturday evening, I had the extreme pleasure of being one of the first to witness with my very own right brain-loving eyes the “Common Tread” display at the City of Carlsbad’s very own, William D. Cannon Art Gallery.

The entire gallery space features the works of sixteen contemporary artists, each employing subjects of both location and memory. Why? Well, the entire show is themed around the Great American Road Trip = a major part of our history and culture. I mean take a quick moment and think about America and it’s love affair with the car. It’s part of our spirit = the open road. Thus, making an art presentation like this one a no brainer. It also made me realize I should have made more stops along the way from Nebraska to California five years ago, BUT you live and you learn ;)

Anyway, if you live in North County OR anywhere [for a matter of fact] in the San Diego area, you should definitely go and give it a look-see. You have until August 17th AND I’m pretty sure even a non-car enthusiast would find it enjoyable. Plus, there’s an Andy Warhol!
