The first place winner of the "We are Fallbrook" art show is "Wine Country Winter Wonder" by Debbie Forbes.

FALLBROOK – The Fallbrook Art Association will host the "We are Fallbrook" art show at The Gallery, 127 N. Main Street, in Fallbrook. The show runs through June 16 and was judged by Richard Stergulz.

This show includes a special photo competition of "Life in Fallbrook" judged by the public. Residents can stop by the gallery to place their vote.

The show judge, Richard Stergulz, is an Illinois native who by age of eight knew he wanted to be an artist. He graduated from the American Academy of Art in Chicago in 1983 which began his commercial art career.

After 12 years of doing commercial art, Stergulz said he felt it was time to fine tune his fine art style. He moved to California in 1995 and started painting in a realistic style with a touch of Russian impressionism.

His paintings have won numerous awards from Best of Show to People's Choice. He teaches class four days a week at his art school and artist retreat, The Green Art House. Find more information at
