We live in a beautiful, gracious city with much to offer, in addition to perfect weather and ocean breezes. Living well at any age means feeding the spirit as well as the body. This month, there are three events that caregivers and loved ones of all ages will enjoy, both indoors and outdoors. Whether you live in Del Mar, La Jolla or anywhere in San Diego, enjoy the coastal culture that San Diego offers.
“That Which Must Be Hidden” at St. James by-the-Sea Episcopal Church
Artist and architect James Hubbell, age 85, will exhibit a collection of stained glass, paintings and sculptures at St-James-By-The-Sea in La Jolla beginning May 19. Hubbell’s Julian studio has been nurturing artists since the early 1960’s, and his sculptures can be found on Shelter Island, Coronado, and schools, parks and gardens around the world. The exhibition marks the opening of the new gallery / library at the church, and the Opening Night Reception will be May 19th from 6 pm – 8 pm. The exhibition will be open to the public in a limited schedule, and by private appointment, but the artist himself will be present at many of the free events hosted by the church’s Visual Arts Committee.
Del Mar San Dieguito Lagoon Day
On Saturday, May 20, the Del Mar Lagoon Committee has planned a day of outdoor and indoor fun for nature-lovers of all ages. Start the day off at 8:30 am with a birdwalk led by a San Dieguito River Park Ranger, and then get up close and personal at 10 am with live reptiles, birds and mammals from Wild Wonders. Then, settle in for three hours of arts and crafts, animal identification games, and DIY science at the Birdwing Open Air Classroom. Best of all, San Dieguito Lagoon Day is free, and you can stay all day (8:30 am – 2 pm) or drop in for what interests you the most.
La Jolla Library Antique Book Roadshow
On Sunday, May 21 from 12:30 pm to 4:30 pm, the La Jolla Library will host an Antique Book Roadshow for the second time. If you have an old book that you suspect might be valuable, appraisers from PBA Galleries, a San Francisco-based auction house that specializes in old and rare books, will be on-site. The gallery says that books can be valuable even if they’re not in perfect condition, so listen to your gut and bring that family treasure down to La Jolla. Pre-registration is required so call the library at (858) 552-1657 to reserve your appraisal time.
