FALLBROOK – Brandon Gallery is holding its fourth biennial “Art by the Inch” fundraiser. This year, in addition to benefiting Brandon Gallery, a non-profit art gallery, the event's proceeds will be shared with three other local nonprofits, REINS, Fallbrook Food Pantry and Fallbrook Beautification Alliance.

Twenty Brandon Gallery artists have collaborated to create one long colorful work of art, blending his or her unique style with the other neighboring painters. The now completed mural, 30-feet long by 52-inch high, is a blend of abstract, impressionist and realistic art focusing on the unique beauty of Fallbrook.

Starting June 15, buyers can select a section of the mural to buy for $1 per square inch. With Brandon’s pre-cut mats in a variety of sizes, and with help from the artists, a buyer can select wonderful compositions to frame and hang.

The mural has been sprayed with a clear acrylic finish so the purchased sections do not need to have glass when framed. Buyers can choose which of the three nonprofits they would like a portion of their purchase to go to.

Brandon will hold a reception June 24 from 5 to 8 p.m. when buyers can purchase sections of Art by the Inch and help celebrate Brandon Gallery’s 40th anniversary. This free event is open to all.

The painters are Diane Adams, Virginia Cole, Penny Fedorchak, Patty Fournier-Willis, Diane Jansen, Susan Keith, Kathleen Morgan, Anne Mudgett, Joe Oakes, Collette Passini, Carol Perko, Carrie Repking, Linda Reyes, Noreen Ring, Gabriella Rodriguez, Mike Strachan, Carol Stickley, Leslie Sweetland, Linda Thorne and Carol Zaleski.

Since the first Art by the Inch event in 2011, more that 400 pieces of quality art have been created and purchased by art collectors. Specially priced framing is available from JP Framing, located within Brandon Gallery.

Brandon Gallery, located at 105 N. Main Ave., is a division of Fallbrook Arts Inc. a 501(c)(3) nonprofit. The gallery is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. For more information, call (760) 723-1330, email, or visit
