The Lux Art Institute store (1550 S. El Camino Real) in Encinitas is going on sale through December 29. The store is open Thursday and Friday from 1-5 p.m. and on Saturday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Members get 20% off, and the regular sale will be 10%.
The naturally inspired jewelry and artwork drew my eye. All goods are handmade and one-of-a-kind. By shopping at the Lux store, you get to support local artists, designers, and artisans.
Here are some Native-American inspired geometric necklaces by Beerhead Factory.
And San Diegan artists will feature their artwork, hanging planters, pillows, and stationery and thank you notes through the holiday--all good gift ideas for stocking stuffers or holiday party hosts/hostesses.
Stop in if you haven't yet viewed the paintings of Alan Feltus, the most recent artist in residence at Lux. Admission is $5, and Feltus' work will be on display through December 29. Spanish-born sculptor Carlos Vega will arrive as Lux's new artist in residence on January 10.
