This professional artists' cooperative was founded on Brandon Street in 1977 by three Fallbrook artists - Virginia Polise, Jeanne Shanahan, and Mary Tomaskevitch. Brandon Gallery is now in the heart of historic downtown Fallbrook, and membership has expanded to nearly 30 members. It continues to promote and sell the work of regional fine artists and to enrich the community through exhibitions, demonstrations, and outreach programs.

Penny Fedorchak

Penny's passion has always been to be an artist; only in recent years has been she able to follow her hearts desire to paint in watercolor. As a member of Jeanne Shanahan’s Plein Air Group, she has found her niche. Penny loves the colors of the outdoors and strives to capture their beauty and strength; her florals show her bold use of color. The grandeur of Yosemite and the Sierra Nevada mountains stimulate her creativity.

Primarily self taught, her art education has consisted of taking workshops and studying with local teachers. Among nationally known artists with whom Penny has studied are: Robert Willis, Charles Reid, Joan McKasson, Cheng Khee-Chee, Fealing Lin, Tom Fong, John Salminen, Mark Mehaffey Gerald Brommer, Carl Dalio, Frank Webb, Frank Francese, Dan Burt, and Don Andrews.

Her paintings have won numerous awards, including:

  • “Sunflowers” 1st place, Fallbrook Art Association 2008.
  • "Autumn in Yosemite,” 2nd place La Jolla Art Association Plein air show, 2007; also, the Dorothy Stillens Plein Air award, FAA 2007.
  • ”Journeys End”, 1st place, FAA 2006.

“I love to paint and hope the viewer will enjoy my work as much as I enjoyed creating it.”



All member artists and guest artists have their work juried into the gallery. Arrangements can be made to present work at the conclusion of any of the six general meetings each year. Artists seeking membership are first juried as guests. Guest artists can show their work for up to four months before a decision is made about membership.
