Over the last 55 years, Del Mar College’s Art and Drama Department has presented the National Drawing and Small Sculpture Show.
This year, the Cain Gallery has transitioned back to in-person viewing and has reopened to feature this year’s fall show, “Permanent Collection Exhibition.” The decision to transition from virtual to in-person is part of the college’s Return-to-Campus Plan Phase 3.
In this collection, the art on display was purchased from 1970 to the most recent purchase from this year’s 2021 show. The art department added to the collection this year featuring the 2021 Joseph A. Cain Memorial Purchase of artist Nate Ditzler’s ceramic piece titled, “Unreal Weather.”
The exhibit is now on display and is open to the public through Dec. 3. Gallery hours are 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 9 a.m. to noon Friday.
