Many North County artists, such as Terry Anderson and Marlene Levitt, were recently selected to showcase their art at the 1st Annual Rancho Santa Fe Art, Rhythm, & Wine event, which took place in the heart of Cielo Village. The art-themed event was hosted by FINE magazine and The Crosby at Rancho Santa Fe HOA, bringing together the best of local jewelry designers, mixed media artists, painters, photographers, sculptors, and more. The art walk was free to the public all afternoon before guests enjoyed live music, gourmet food tastings, and wine and beer tastings. Proceeds helped support The Country Friends, a 92067 charity founded in 1954 to raise funds for local human care agencies. Organizations funded this year include Big Brothers Big Sisters, Helen Woodward Animal Center, San Diego Second Chance Program, and Voices for Children. Learn more at www.thecountryfriends.org.
