Brandon Gallery is a professional artists' cooperative founded on Brandon Street in 1977 by three Fallbrook artists - Virginia Polise, Jeanne Shanahan, and Mary Tomaskevitch. The 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.
Noreen Ring has lived in Fallbrook, California since 1986. The intent of her textile art quilts is to reflect a connectedness with her surroundings. Rolling hills, big sky, stars, the moon and how they all seem to fit together in perfect harmony.
Noreen’s quilts are hand-stitched and viewers almost always ask, “How long did it take to make this?” She spends a lot of her time threading needles.
Showing at the Brandon Gallery since January, 2008, her works can also be seen in select regional fine art shows and in national fiber art shows.
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.
