Perhacs to retire from art center

FALLBROOK – Mary Perhacs will retire this month as Executive Director of Fallbrook Arts, Inc. During her 24 years of creative and artistic guidance, the Fallbrook Art Center has grown into hosting a variety of shows, reflecting a diversity of disciplines and sparks of uniqueness.

Perhacs' reputation as an advocate for artists assured that the art center was recognized by national and international artists, such as those selected to be part of the recent 14th Annual Signature Water Color Show. The Galaxy of Glass annual show is another inspired display of creativity that came to Fallbrook because of her expertise and dedication.

Above all, Perhacs solidified the reputation of The Fallbrook Art Center and Fallbrook School of the Arts for offering a diverse array of classes and shows focusing on art of the West, wildlife, gourd carving, glass, oil and water color, and sculpture.

The Find, the Art Center gift shop, which features a multitude of local artists, is an example of her foresight and creative palette for what art lovers find intriguing. Perhacs is the first to say, "I'm not an artist." But as one can see from the shows she has curated, she has an artful eye and heart.

Upon her retirement, the FAI Board is grateful for all her endeavors and immense success in bringing her artistic eye and enlivened heart to the Fallbrook Art Center and Fallbrook School of the Arts.

Jerri Patchett, President of the Board, said "Mary has spent 24 years building an amazing arts organization for our community. Her retirement is well-deserved and she has our gratitude and best wishes as she starts this new chapter of life."
