Local Laguna sculptor Jon Seeman and his wife, author Lorraine Passero, will be guest speakers at the Laguna Beach Business Club on Thursday, Oct. 19.
Club meetings begin with a buffet breakfast and networking at the Hotel Laguna, 425 S. Coast Highway.
Their topic will be “Inheriting Art: Laguna’s First Tradition.” Seeman’s commissions include local public sculptures and Passero brings to light the art of Seeman’s great-great aunt, Clara Mason Fox, one of the few women artists in Laguna in the 1890s. In her book “Distant Indigo,” Passero uncovers the work of the artist, author and poet.
