Artists Unlock Their Studios
On Saturday, Nov. 3, art enthusiasts are invited to visit local professional artists in their studios during Artist Open Studios, a free event from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Participants can also catch a free shuttle service from the ACT V parking lot, located at 1900 Laguna Canyon Rd., that will squire them to the various artist locations.
The “open house” offers visitors the ability to observe 36 artists working in a spectrum of art media – glass blowing, fused glass, ceramic, painting, printmaking, and bronze lost-wax demonstrations.
For a list of participating artists, visit the Cultural Arts Department page at lagunabeachcity.net or call 949-497-0722.
Questioning the Candidates
On, 2012, BC Space Gallery will host an open house from 1-6 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 4 with a special forum on the issues presented in the ongoing Capital Crime$ exhibition from 3-5 p.m.
As part of this powerful and timely exhibition, contributing artists were requested to submit questions that they would like to be asked of their electoral candidates on issues related to the abusive role money plays in our culture. Many of the questions directly relate to the visual content dynamically presented in the over 100 pieces by over 60 outstanding artists.
Capital Crime$ will be on display at BC Space Gallery, 235 Forest Ave., through Dec. 21.
For the Love of Art
The public is invited to a free artist presentation about China’s Hidden Villages at Forest & Ocean Gallery, 480 Ocean Ave., Saturday, Nov. 3, from 3-4 p.m.
Unnoticed by the passing traffic, secluded from the main-street views of bustling commerce, tucked within the walls of a rapidly emerging modern nation lie small, secluded sanctuaries overlooked by progress.
Join gallery owner and photographer Ludo Leideritz for an entertaining presentation of enclaves that will disappear all too soon.
Exhibit Acts on Brevity
A new exhibit by artist Micheal Kessler, “Concise Actions,” opened on Thursday at Art Cube Gallery 266 Forest Ave. and runs through Friday, Nov. 30.
