Why Art-Lovers are Visiting Del Mar Plaza

The beach views, mouthwatering cuisine, and unique boutiques aren’t the only things drawing crowds to Del Mar Plaza. Shoppers and surfers alike are quickly turning into art aficionados and collectors after visiting one of the art studios or exhibits that call the Plaza home.

Our galleries and boutiques offer art collectors one-of-a-kind pieces for their homes. Our showrooms are also a unique experience all their own, each representing an array of different artists and artistic styles. Here are a few galleries to check out next time you’re in the area.

Michael Seewald Galleries

If you’re looking for a breathtaking image of a far-off land, start with Michael Seewald’s gallery. You’ll find moving fine-art photographs from his global travels, inspired by the culture and surroundings of the places he visits. Who knows? Keeping one of his photographs in your own home may just inspire your next adventure.

The gallery also showcases work from artists such as Tonya Zenin, Claire Livingston, Daniel Brogan, Don Herron, Christa Chapian, Nasrin Kheiri, and Oscar Afsahi.

Del Mar Art Center

Del Mar Art Center is a non-profit gallery that showcases some of the city’s up-and-coming artists. The center holds art events and demonstrations as well, but ultimately, it’s a place for local artists to exhibit their work. It’s also a place for you to pick up something truly special to add to your collection.

Made in Earth

Made in Earth offers wearable art in the form of hand-crafted jewelry pieces. Don’t be fooled—this jewelry store is definitely an art gallery with a variety of rare stones and crystals on display. Each distinctive jewelry piece has its own story to tell, and being set as rings, pendants, earrings, and necklaces, it’s a story—and piece of art—you can take along with you wherever you go.

The Plaza also hosts several art events throughout the year. Our Artisan Pop-Up Market and special holiday events offer our guests the chance to pick up a unique find. To view our events and find a place to dine after shopping, visit Del Mar Plaza online.
