Artists can apply for airport exhibit

John Wayne Airport is on the lookout for Orange County-connected visual artists to apply for exhibition slots in a show titled “Community Focus Space.”

Once selected, the artists will be included in the calendar for this solo display series from July 2014 onward.

The artwork, available for passenger and public viewership, will be mounted in front of the security checkpoints and next to baggage carousels 1 and 4 in the Thomas F. Riley Terminal. The works will be presented for about 30 days each. The exhibitions are free to the artists.


Artists must have been born, raised or educated in Orange County, or they must currently live, work or own property in the area. Applications are due no later than 4 p.m. May 15.

Boys & Girls art on display


The Young Artists Society Gallery, located on the lower level of the Laguna Art Museum, hosts “In Our Imagination,” an exhibition by members of the Boys & Girls Club of Laguna Beach.

These pieces of art are inspired by artist Allison Schulnik, also on display at the museum.

To contribute artwork for this show, Boys & Girls Club art director Emily Murray worked with students ages 5 to 12 in her after-school class to create paintings from modeling paste and acrylic paint similar to Schulnik’s.

For more information about “In Our Imagination,” which will be on display until April 14, visit

The nonprofit Artists Inspiring the Raindrops will host an art auction to benefit Women for World Health from 4 to 7 p.m. March 30.

The event is being presented at Alexander Rug Gallery, 412 North Pacific Coast Highway, Laguna Beach.
