Center for the Arts Group emerges from Village Association

FALLBROOK — The Fallbrook Village Association is now transitioning into the next phase of its economic revitalization program.

At a luncheon held last month, Marlene Rantanen and Vince Ross explained to civic and community leaders that the Fallbrook Village Association, as a natural process of growth and maturation, is transforming from one organization into two.

The newly formed entity, Fallbrook Center for the Arts Group, will focus exclusively on the arts and their role in the economic vitality of Fallbrook.

Board members of the new group include president Marlene Rantanen, vice president Jerri Patchett, treasurer Jim Claborn, secretary Robin Erickson, assistant secretary Colleen Aichle, past president Vince Ross and Jim Helms, Connie Fish and Helene Ross.

“Identifying and isolating the significant success of Fallbrook’s five arts organizations that fall under the umbrella of Fallbrook Center for the Arts Group is visionary during this period of economic uncertainty,” said Rantanen.

The caliber of instruction available at Fallbrook School of the Arts assures that classes continue to swell with students from this region, and beyond, bringing much-needed discretionary dollars to local businesses.

The Fallbrook Art Center’s reputation for excellence and sophistication with exhibits such as last fall’s “Decades of Conflict” gained notable attention with its intensity and conversation-worthy content.

The Brandon Gallery and Fallbrook Art in Public Places, in concert with the Fallbrook Arts Alliance, continue to generate excitement and energy about the enormous variety of arts promoted and supported by the community.

Rantanen believes that as Fallbrook continues to attract new residents and visitors because of the arts, these programs will gain valuable energy and momentum and will continue to renew and refresh the community.
