EC Gallery Celebrates 19 Years in Business

Exclusive Collections has come a long way in its 19 years, but it has never wavered in its spirit of community and family closeness. This past weekend, EC Galleries celebrated its 19th Anniversary with artist appearances, live painting, food and drink, and fun for the whole family!


Artists Steve Barton and Walfrido Garcia joined Exclusive Collections Gallery in San Diego’s beautiful Seaport Village on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. With delicious food created by Chris’ Ono Grinds Island Grill and hula dancing performed by the Island Praise Dance Ministry, it was a weekend of fun in the sun!

Both artists painted live in the gallery, demonstrating their amazing brushwork and eye for beauty. While similar in subject matter, each artist carries a distinct style of painting that sets them apart. Walfrido Garcia uses many layers of oil paint that gradually build up to create serene seascapes of tropical paradise. Steve Barton, applying thicker brushstrokes to the canvas or even a surfboard, creates a painterly quality that contributes to the three-dimensional aspect of his work. This three-dimensionality is also seen in his signature wavy frames.

BYOB! Michael Flohr visited Exclusive Collections Gallery in San Diego’s Historic Gaslamp to celebrate with drinks in hand and on the easel! Art collectors brought in their favorite bottles to be turned into works of art by Michael Flohr in beautiful oil-on-paper sketches.


Daniel Merriam enchanted art collectors in Laguna Beach with a dazzling new collection of fine art limited edition paintings. Four new paintings include A World Away, Music Room, The Falconess and Staying on Top. Fans and art collectors were able to meet Daniel Merriam and learn more about the fantasy and imagination that inspires the way he sees the world.
