A Message from Elsie Arredondo...

In January 2018, the Gallery announced the closure of our Prospect St. showroom in La Jolla.  Since then the gallery has operated a decentralized model, working to continuously serve our artists and collectors.  This unforeseen period has offered an opportunity to reflect on the direction of Monarch Arredon Contemporary Art.  The Gallery has operated in La Jolla since 2013 under the ownership of Danny and Elsie Arredondo.   A message from Elsie Arredondo…

For the past few years I have observed trends in the San Diego art market and although I have loved having a gallery space in La Jolla, I know that if I want to continue to serve my artists and collectors, it is time to reconsider our location and overall gallery model.  To that end, we are in the process of searching for a larger venue within San Diego County to serve as our headquarters and to best present our artists and their work.  Secondly, we are reviewing our core mission and area of specialty so that we can grow our inventory of artists accordingly.  We will be expanding our services to include art appraising within our area of expertise.   Lastly, we understand that technology connects us all and that art collectors are not limited to a stationary gallery space.  Art collecting is meant to fit a lifestyle and it is this lifestyle that requires artwork to be readily available and accessible beyond the gallery walls.  As such, we will continue to create exhibitions outside our gallery space and online.   Stay tuned for more updates coming soon!

We truly value our artists, collectors and gallery followers and would love to hear from you!  Send us your questions, feedback or just say hello to info@monarchfineart.com.

Affectionately,

Elsie Arredondo
