Isn't that refreshing? Everyone wants to know what you're doing for the day but we're only interested in the day after. That's because we have an event (6:30 to 9:00 p.m. Feb. 15). We were going to do a Facebook Event but, Facebook...
We're calling it Valentines Revisited. In this show, we asked or cadre of artists to "think about what is in your heart" and put it into physical form. We think you will like what they came up with. And we want to know what you think!
So just come with the one you love (you) and anyone else you care for (or not). We're showing some excellent art by great artists, celebrating a name change (used to be Biz Center Art, now we're On The Edge Art Gallery, tell the World!), playing music, and enjoying food!
Speaking of food, we're honoring Fair Trade San Diego and the DK Local Kitchen food truck will be in the parking lot. How's that for on the edge?
Also, the local artists in the show ask you to vote for the piece of art you like the most. The artist receiving the most votes gets his/her own solo show at On The Edge Art Gallery. Thanks in advance for the love!
A rose, by any other name, would smell as sweet. Right? Right.
So why are we in the process of changing the name of our gallery from Biz Center Art to On the Edge? Good question. The gallery is in the same place that used to house the La Mesa Biz Center and, while the Biz Center is gone, the landlord loves the idea of housing a gallery here.
The gallery sits on the edge of San Diego, literally feet into La Mesa, so... On The Edge. And also, let's face it, artists, art collectors and art lovers are a little out there... one the edge.
Please bear with us as we change things, our web address, logos and such. Because we're artists, we need to respect the process...
This is new: reception guests vote on their favorite art and the artist who created it is honored with a special -- and room in which to showcase their art. We will honor People's Choice Award winner Shelby Marzoni with a reception on Friday, June 21 from 6:30-9:00 p.m. Congratulations Shelby!

the south side of El Cajon Boulevard, right on the border of La Mesa
and San Diego, there's this two-story 1970's office building. You could
drive past it 1,000 times never cast a second thought in its direction.
It's home to the La Mesa Biz Center, a small business incubator where
entrepreneurs can sign up for office space, a conference room or just a
Hyde, a visual artist and retired art teacher, promises something very
cool is afoot in that space. A few times a year, she gathers together
work from local artists and displays the pieces in the hallways, offices
and conference rooms.
Saturday evening she's kicking off "Configuration,"
which runs from Jan. 19 through April 1. The event, located at 7317 El
Cajon Blvd., will run from 6:30 to 9 p.m. and feature art, food and
wine. On display will be works of Julian Charter School students, as
well as from adult artists working in a variety of media.
trying to be open to a lot of ideas of what art is," Hyde said. "I like
branching out to different kinds of art, from collage to found objects.
I like to see the variety."
said that while San Diego has plenty of permanent and makeshift spaces
for exhibiting art, there is still potential for developing East
County's visual arts venues. The business center may not be an obvious
choice for displaying art, but she said the interior walls work well,
and the artists will benefit from regular foot traffic after the
Hyde has planned three shows for 2013. The next, on the topic of "Possibilities," will run April 20 to July 1.
