New Asian Gallery Set to Open
Floating Cloud Gallery opens in a new location in Laguna Beach on Saturday, Aug. 20, and invites the public to an opening reception, 4 to 8 p.m.

A portion of proceeds will be donated to Save the Children, said artist agent Siew Tan.
Girls Vs. Boys: The Summer Of Love
The end to summer at AR4T is a gathering of collaborative works between 56 artists from across the country. The closing reception, Friday, Aug. 19, 7-10 p.m., is free and open to the public. The exhibition, 210 N. Coast Highway, runs through Sept. 10.
Partnerships are made of one male and one female artist who have chosen each other out of mutual admiration and friendship. Combining individual talents into one unique new work is a study of trust, adventure, emotion. This show is off the hook in more ways than one, the top of the list being partnerships that might not happen again.
