In the Arts: Arnold to Festival of Arts board

The Festival of Arts board of directors tapped Laguna Beach resident Tammie Arnold for an open board position.

Arnold follows Steve Dicterow, who was recently elected to the Laguna Beach City Council. She will complete his remaining two-year term.

A retired managing director from Pimco, Arnold holds an undergraduate degree from USC and an MBA from the Stanford Graduate School of Business.

"It's an honor to service our Laguna community through participation on the Festival of Arts board," Arnold said in a release.

Along with President Fred Sattler, Vice President Tom Lamb, Treasurer Anita Mangels, Secretary Pat Kollenda and board members Wayne Baglin, Bob Moffett, David Perry and Ann Webster, Arnold will help guide the future of the Festival of Arts and Pageant of the Masters.


Artist Open Studios set to end

Saturday will be the final opportunity to enjoy Laguna Beach's Artist Open Studios. This free event lasts from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., allowing art enthusiasts to interact with and watch 34 established and emerging artists working in their studios.

"When they stop by my studios I will show them how I work, talk about why I do what I do, and answer any questions they have," printmaker and painter Sheryl Seltzer said in a release. "Usually I encourage children and help them to make a simple relief print to demonstrate the process. Showing the work is one thing, but talking to people and telling them how and why I do what I do is really enriching for me, and I hope for them as well."

Participants can catch a free shuttle service from the Act V parking lot, located at 1900 Laguna Canyon Road, and take advantage of free parking.
