Blue Garage Gallery Joins the Mission Hills Scenery

| April 5, 2021 | 0 Comments

And then came the Pandemic. A year ago Kirby Kendrick’s gallery in Santa Fe and in San Diego closed temporarily, due of course, to the pandemic. She thought, “Where, oh where can I show my paintings now?”

That’s when she decided that her garage door in Mission Hills would be perfect. It’s on a on a sparsely motored but heavily pedestrian traveled street. So she painted Blue Garage Gallery in big letters on the garage door and every day she would hang a painting on the door for all the walkers, joggers, skateboarders, and bicyclists to see.

Kendrick offered that her Mission Hills neighborhood has several unusual venues on individual houses and properties for passerby’s entertainment. There is a Monarch butterfly nursery; a “Where’s Waldo” front yard garden; an art hanging tree; a dog treat and water stop; little libraries galore; a Hot Wheels’ swap stand; an authentic native plant garden with avocado, lemon and orange give-away baskets; and now an outdoor art gallery.

Kirby Kendrick paints, makes art installations and art videos, writes an art history blog and is the “resident artist” of the Blue Garage Gallery.

She is also looking for a talented individual to join her team, someone who has experience selling on Ebay.  If you’re that person, you can contact Kirby at, or, via phone at 505-600-4448. For more information, visit her website at
