Beyond the Border With Art and Food

If you enjoy contemporary art and wonderful food, you'll want to attend the upcoming Beyond the Border International Contemporary Art Fair and its companion event, The Art of Wine and Food, the weekend of Sept. 2 - 4. Both will be held at the Grand Del Mar Resort.


The three-day art fair will include national and international galleries representing over 500 juried works by both established and emerging contemporary artists from around the world, along with curated art installations. We're talking investment-grade pieces, a first for these galleries in San Diego.

In conjunction with the art fair, on Thurs., Sept. 3, The Art of Wine and Food will offer a five-course meal with wine pairings, sponsored by The American Institute of Wine and Food, at Addison, the Grand Del Mar Resort's signature restaurant. Addison's chef, William Bradley, will be one of four featured chefs and two sommeliers.


Joining Bradley will be chef Angela Tamura of Napa's ZuZu restaurant; local chef Javier Placensia of Romesco in Bonita; chef Wolfgang Gussmack of 3 Square in Venice, Calif.; guest sommelier Chris Blanchard of Chappellet in Napa; and Addison's advanced sommelier, Jesse Rodriguez.

The event begins at 7 p.m. with a reception at which champagne and canapes will be served. Dinner begins at 8 p.m. Tickets for the dinner are $200 each or $170 for AIWF members, and can be purchased at the Beyond the Border website or by emailing: info@beyondtheborder-art.com.

Tickets for the art fair can also be purchased on the Beyond the Border website.
