FALLBROOK – Brandon Gallery’s colorful 30 foot hand painted mural selling and cutting event got off to an exciting start at its gala reception June 24. Sales will continue through the month of July and proceeds will be shared with REINS, The Fallbrook Food Pantry and Fallbrook Beautification Alliance.

Twenty Brandon Gallery artists collaborated to create one long colorful work of art, blending his or her unique style with the other neighboring painters. The 30-foot mural blends abstract, impressionist and realistic art focusing on the beauty of Fallbrook.

Buyers select a section of the mural to purchase for one dollar per square inch; some part of the mural appeals to every artistic taste. With Brandon’s pre-cut mats in a variety of sizes and with help from the artists, a buyer can select wonderful compositions to frame and hang.

Since the first Art by the Inch event, more than 400 pieces of quality art have been created by the art makers and purchased by art collectors. Specially priced framing is available from JP Framing, located within the gallery.

Originated in 2009 and held every two years, this event is popular not only because it brings the artist together with the art lover, but also because sales contribute funds to other local non-profit organizations.

Brandon Gallery, located at 105 N. Main, is a division of Fallbrook Arts Inc. a 501(c)(3) nonprofit. The gallery is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. For more information, call (760) 723-1330 or email [email protected]
