landscape painter like his mentor William Hogarth, but soon con- centrated on portraiture. Perhaps most striking is the one of his own daughters, women he envisioned as professional artists who could fend for themselves rather than looking for husbands. This was a very progressive attitude at the time, represented by lovely cream colored and teal blue gowns and poses that suggest a maturity more advanced than their years. Gainsborough’s adoration continues in his treatment of the Honorable Anne Fane, wife of a Parliamentarian, festooned in a dramatic dark bodice in contrast to the pearl necklace and white trim of her dress, topped off by her flowing dark tresses.
The gowns take center stage in
renderings of Mrs. Elliott, awash in cream and gold, while Ann Ford’s flowing white gown is marked by a stringed instrument, a viol de gamba, tucked demurely under her arm. Another of a ballerina caught in the execution of her art is a rare departure for him, as he preferred posed or seated models. Most statuesque is that of Mrs. Sarah Siddons, star of the London stage, in quiet repose. The center- piece of the exhibit is a stately pose by Vicountess Ligonier, on loan from the Huntington Library near Pasadena. The rich ochre hues of the backdrop add an aristocratic feel to her gown and elaborate hairstyle.
Splendid complements to the
exhibit are several mannequins in replicas of the gowns of the period, on loan from the Cincinnati Art Museum, which recently hosted the exhibit. Both exhibits are on display now and continue through May 1 at the SDMA in Balboa Park. For more information, call 232-7931 or visit sdma.org

ing Co is the “first small neighbor- hood brewery in the San Diego metro area.” “I don’t think I’m slighting anyone there,” Chase said of the claim, mentally review- ing an ever-growing list of area breweries. Of huge importance to him is being able to brew within his community. “Support your local brewery takes on a whole new meaning” when it’s in your neighborhood, he explained.
Chase thinks the Uptown area could support more neighborhood breweries. “It’d be great to see more,” he said thoughtfully. “I’d love it if some- one opened a brewery in North Park,” he said of Normal Height’s neighboring neighborhood. He envisions a pre-prohi- bition-esque world where we are less dependent on highway infrastructure and everything we need can be found within the community. “We’d all live, work and drink in the same place.”
Until then, Chase is living the
dream. He lives six blocks from the restaurant and brewery he owns. I wonder if that was ever on his mental checklist?u
