Wildlife art show matures into nationally recognized event

FALLBROOK – What began 17 years ago as a fundraiser for the Fallbrook Land Conservancy, the Fallbrook Art Center’s (FAC) Reflections of Nature wildlife art show, has now grown into a nationally recognized event drawing visitors from across the western US to Fallbrook.

Show founder, Fallbrook’s resident Gamini Ratnavira, is recognized internationally for his various depictions of the world’s wildlife – whether in his native Sri Lanka, or from his back door.

Over 1,000 people attended the weekend show, many taking home at least one creation they “couldn’t live without” said organizers.

Visitors enjoyed works by 27 artists working in a wide variety of media, disciplines and styles, and also had the opportunity to speak directly with the artists who were in attendance.

“This is what makes this show so popular,” said Mary Perhacs, FAC’s executive director.

Fallbrook Art Center is a division of Fallbrook Arts, Inc. and it presents seven to ten exhibitions each year. For more information, please visit,
