June 17, 2015 (El Cajon)--The Olaf Wieghorst Museum in El Cajon, will be closed for painting from June 17th through July 6th - 2015.

It will reopen Tuesday July 7th and nine local artists will have a special exhibit. Come take a look and see the creativeness of: Carlos Castrejon, Gloria Chadwick, Joe Garcia, Jack Jordan, James Kermott, Mehl Lawson, Mark Martensen, Chris Mummert, and Grace Schlesier.

Additionally, there will be an opening reception held on Thursday, July 9th , 2015 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.

I look forward to the fresh new paint scheme, overall feel and viewing the one of a kind pieces made by these talented folks.

If you’ve never been to this fascinating museum & art gallery named for the famed Western artist whose works were sold to several presidents and movie star John Wayne, take some time and check this place out. There is much to see, and beautiful things to buy as well.
