RANCHO SANTA FE — The Rancho Santa Fe Art Guild will present Ron Spelman as their featured artist, kicking off with a reception from 5 to 7 p.m. July 12 at 6004 Paseo Delicias.
Spelman is president of the Rancho Santa Fe Art Guild, an active Rotarian, member of the La Jolla Art Association and former president of the San Diego Portrait Society. Spelman is a 40-year resident of La Jolla and former business owner of Spelman & Co.
Spelman will unveil a body of work at the Rancho Santa Fe Art Guild that will be on display through late August. This special exhibit reveals Spelman’s focus on the human form, portraiture and still life. His art will be shown along with 25 additional artists’ work. The display will hang for eight weeks at the Rancho Santa Fe Art Guild,
“His passion for humanity is evident in the emotion conveyed through his brushstroke, using expression to set a mood,” an Art Guild spokesman said. “Spelman prides himself with the ability to capture skin tones using light and dark hues.
“Above all, Spelman enjoys creating art, a talent which he has been exploring for the past 25 years. Spelman was so driven to be a painter that he actually sold his successful La Jolla business, in order to paint full time. A sense of fulfillment is one of Spelman’s favorite rewards, as he continues to satisfy his desire to paint.”
