Sculpture auction to benefit public art

FALLBROOK – Fallbrook Art in Public Places will have one of Don Rambadt’s sculptures available for auction at its St. Patrick’s Day celebration and fundraiser on March 17. The event will be held at the Fallbrook School of the Arts from 5 to 8 p.m.

Tickets are available online at or at the Fallbrook Art Center and Chamber of Commerce. The event helps keep the non-profit group’s mission alive to purchase and to rotate art on loan for the community.

The non-profit Fallbrook Art in Public Places currently has two Rambadt sculptures in their collection including the "Larger Circle" in the Vince Ross Square and the "Beacon" at Palomares House.

The Fallbrook Library features the "Owl" located in the garden and private collectors in the area have Rambadt’s work in their homes. He exhibits his work at shows across the country. Rambadt has said, "I sculpt because I enjoy the challenge of manipulating space." He focuses on creating wildlife in bronze.

There are over 30 pieces of public art in Fallbrook and a locater map can be downloaded from

In Fallbrook’s art on loan program, art pieces are rotated every 18 months. The newest art piece on loan is in front of the Fallbrook Art Center. The piece is called "Flower" from Les Perhacs’ Chaos Series. This piece is made from fabricated steel. In his Chaos Series, Perhacs interprets nature through geometry.

Each sculpture in the series is made from a single geometric form that Perhacs cuts apart to open it up showing the resultant motion of chaos. Since beginning the series in 2002, he has created more than 30 pieces in fabricated bronze, steel, stone, and varying combinations. He sees no difference in his abstract work from his realism – the goal is always to take the viewer "beyond the surface."

Art in Public Places is a division of Fallbrook Arts Inc. a non profit 501(c)3 corporation. Their vision is to help Fallbrook become a widely known art destination by continuing the installation of public works of art created by local, regional and nationally known artists.
