Wabisabi Green Gallery Opening

Last night I ventured down the coast to attend a gallery opening. Well-known local artist, Jolee Pink, launched her newest venture in Encinitas. She opened a pop-up gallery (with several other artists) to showcase her modern, eco friendly home decor collection and turned a ho-hum commercial space into an aquatic wonderland for the event.

I first noticed Jolee's work many years ago when it was featured at the Encinitas Library. I loved her pillow designs and decided to sell them in my retail shop. She is multi-talented and works with lots of mediums, including fabric, paint, and ceramic.

The Wabisabi Green Pop-Up Gallery is in an quirky gallery space on the coast - at 161 Melrose Avenue in Encinitas.

Drinks from Conscious Coconuts and crepes from Cassie's Crepes were available at the opening
