Artists and art lovers will descend on UCSD’s Warren Field once again for the 27th annual La Jolla Festival of the Arts on June 22 and 23.

Bringing together 200 artists, entertainment, wine, beer, food and live performance art, the festival, produced by the Torrey Pines Kiwanis Club, runs from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.

Among the area artists featured will be:

• Husband-and-wife team Jeremy and Gabriela Firehammer, who cut and polish each stone by hand before inlaying them in stainless steel, creating geometric sculptures and wall hangings

• Escondido-based impressionist Robert Ferguson, whose landscapes are drawn exclusively from plein-air studies in Europe and the Western U.S.

• Electrical engineer-turned-photographer Dave Ness, who takes photographs of landscapes, wildlife and unique abstracts

• Local sculptor Amos Robinson, who transforms sheets of solid steel into fluid shapes to create graceful sculptures and mobiles

Tickets can be purchased online for $12 until June 21 or for $14 at the door. Active-duty military and children ages 16 and under admitted free. Abundant free parking is available. For more information, visit
