The art of art
If you get a chance, make time to get to Gallery 821 the student
gallery of artists who attend the Laguna College of Art & Design. You
can get great art at great prices.
“Make this a part of your complete art experience ... see great
art and perhaps purchase artwork from a future Van Gogh,” said
Caroline Butler from the college. She’s right. Gallery 821 is at 821
Laguna Canyon Drive between the Sawdust Art Festival and Art-a-Fair.
Out and About

people watch. Ocean Avenue Brewery is a fun place to go and sit on
their patio. They always have great music and a fun crowd.
Javiers has also been known as a fun place to people watch --
those traveling by and on South Coast Highway. They have very tasty
Marg’s too or so I am told.
The epic exhibit at Laguna Art Museum -- “Surf Culture: The Art
History of Surfing” will be paddling up July 28 and will run through
It’s a big one, grand with events throughout the exhibit. The
exhibit goes back to its inception through today.
