New Art Exhibition Opens at the Coastal Arcadia In Dana Point

The Coastal Arcadian officially opened its new contemporary art exhibit in Dana Point.

Wine and hors d’oeuvre were served as art lovers mingled and celebrated the official opening of The Shed’s contemporary art exhibit at the Coastal Arcadian in Dana Point on Saturday.

After months of redevelopment last year, owner Sue Osborne transformed The Shed—once part of a landscape nursery—into an upscale gallery with the help of friend and gallery director Michael Ruffini, whose vibrant paintings and innovative sculptures are featured in the gallery.

Other artists featured at The Shed include Nick Arciero from Chicago and California artists Michael Moon and Dray.

According to Osborne, the Coastal Arcadian’s trilogy of shops were designed to come together as a tranquil rustic oasis for guests to walk through for a pleasant shopping experience.

“I want to create an area where people can come in and step away from the chaos of everyday life,” she said. “Away from computers, cell phones and the television.”

Coastal Arcadian also sells an assorted collection of high-quality beads at their OC Beads store and additional art pieces and specialty items at The Coop.

I heard the buzz about the Arcadian and this new Fine Art Gallery called The Shed. So I wanted to see what all the excitement was about. What an awesome event it was on Saturday night. . We had a great time mingling and meeting new people. I think this place will be the next hot spot on the map for Art and entertainment. I am also excited to see how this little hotspot is going to add an element of excitement for artists and musicians alike, not to mention anyone looking for fun things to do on the weekend. Looking forward to your next event!
