FALLBROOK – Gullah Folk Art will be offered as a new exhibit and purchase opportunity at Le Bistro restaurant, 119 N. Main Ave., Fallbrook from June 8 through Aug. 31.

For decades the East Coast has enjoyed this uniquely American art form that tells the story of the descendants of African slaves in paint and canvas. The Gullah culture that melds African roots with the American experience celebrates daily life and deeply-held family values in dance, song, dress and most colorfully in its folk art.

On Saturday, June 8, Le Bistro restaurant will introduce the works of Allen Fireall a renowned Gullah artist of Savannah, Georgia to Southern California. The three-month long exhibition will open with a pre-view from 4 to 7 p.m. for those with a serious eye to acquire a piece of American history. Fireall will be traveling from Georgia for the opening. An RSVP is required for the opening reception. Please call (760) 723-0384. Dinner reservations are available for that evening from 7 to 10 p.m.

Now owned and operated by longtime art collectors Steve and Colleen Aichle, Le Bistro is hung as a fine art gallery, combining two passions – food and art.

Normal viewing of the art will be available during restaurant hours Wednesdays through Mondays from 5 to 9 p.m. Call (760) 723-3559 for more information or visit
