Fallbrook artists featured in Encinitas show

ENCINITAS – Fallbrook artists Jim Helms and Peter Mitten are two of 17 artists whose work is being featured now through March 11, 2011 in the San Diego Botanic Garden’s Sculpture in the Garden show in Encinitas.

This is the third consecutive year of the show with sculptures installed in the natural, picturesque 35-acre setting.

The sculptures are set against a beautiful backdrop of dragon trees, fruit gardens, bamboo groves, and many more unique garden areas.

“Art is certainly inspired by life, which is why the flourishing garden provides the ideal setting for these organic creations,” says Julian Duval, president and CEO of San Diego Botanic Garden. “We are honored to host the beautiful and inspiring works of these fine artists.”

Peter Mitten’s sculpture “Yoni 3” and Jim Helms’ ‘

“Serenity” will be on display in the Bamboo Garden; Mitten’s creation ‘Paso 12’ near the Gift Shop Pond; and Helms’ artwork ‘Recovery’ in the Firescape Garden.

A map is available at the garden for visitors to use for a self-guided tour. The San Diego Botanic Garden is located at 230 Quail Gardens Drive, which is parallel to Interstate 5, between Encinitas and Leucadia blvds. Visit for more information.
