In the Arts

The Fingerhut Gallery, at 210 Forest Ave. in Laguna Beach, is slated to present an exhibition of works by Grace Slick on Saturday.

The former model and singer, known for her time with Jefferson Airplane and Jefferson Starship, will be at the venue from 6 to 9 p.m.

"You can come to the gallery, hang out, slurp up some refreshments, chat with yours truly, look at my paintings, buy them or not, then go home and talk about what a semi-talented weirdo Grace Slick is," the artist wrote in a news release.
