I’d like to gratefully acknowledge and thank Laguna Beach First Thursdays Art Walk for their continued collaboration with LCAD in making the professional mentor/student program a huge success. The program, which culminates during every December First Thursdays Art Walk, just celebrated it’s12th year.
The relationships and opportunities that our young artists establish with participating gallery professionals hold the potential to change the courses of their lives and their careers. Our mission at Laguna College of Art and Design is to produce the next generation of great artists and designers. The participating galleries, with their continued good efforts, are our partners in fulfilling that mission.
I also wish to offer a heartfelt “thank you” to these specific galleries for their generous participation in hosting and mentoring an LCAD student in the 2013 professional mentor program: La Bottega Dell Acquaforte,The Redfern Gallery, DeRu’s Fine Arts, Studio 7 Gallery, Salt Fine Art, Art Cube Gallery, Cove Gallery, AR4T SPACE, The George Gallery, Laguna Ink Spot & Gallery, Forest & Ocean Gallery, Artist Eye Laguna Gallery, Dawson Cole Fine Art, Exclusive Collections Gallery and Pacific Edge Gallery.
All at LCAD appreciate your participation and the time you dedicated to helping our students.
Jonathan Burke, president, Laguna College of Art & Design
