Inspirations and The Ink Spot Galleries

The walls of our galleries come alive with new shows each quarter on different themes. On-going art exhibits that feature new work every three months welcome visitors and inspire writers. The Inspirations and The Ink Spot Galleries feature work of our community’s most accomplished artists and a portion of their art sales go directly to support San Diego Writers, Ink’s programs.

Currently Exhibiting:

A Solo Show featuring the photography of Patrick McMahon
January 6 – April 2

As an artist, Patrick McMahon’s primary medium is photography. With his diverse background in art, writing, music, and engineering, he is able to approach creative expression from a range of viewpoints. His photo work has been exhibited nationally for over twenty years and featured in numerous group and solo shows. He has also conducted expressive arts seminars throughout the country. His recent work explores the universal through the macro lens. Extreme close-ups when enlarged become expressions of his soul, and for the observer, windows into other worlds.

Upcoming Exhibits:

Exhibits are designed around a theme.

Artists interested in having their artwork displayed at the galleries are invited to contact Kristen at programs@sandiegowriters.org.  All applications will be evaluated for upcoming exhibition dates.

Please direct any questions regarding exhibitions, private viewings, or art purchase inquiries to programs@sandiegowriters.org.
