The Del Mar Fair might be over, but for those who missed it, La Jolla Art Association (LJAA) will give art lovers the chance to scope out some of the masterpieces featured at the fair. Twenty-five LJAA members’ works of art were selected in a competitive judging process and were featured in the fine-arts section of the fair. The art association will feature the works of 20 of those participating artists in a special reception on July 21 from 5 to 7 p.m. at the gallery, 8100 Paseo del Ocaso.
