‘Homeless in Paradise’ Exhibit Opens

Timothy Carmody’s image of Charles Reginald Conwell , known as “Cowboy,” a well-known Laguna character who battled alcoholism and died in 2010, is included in the exhibit.

BC Space Gallery hosts a public reception for the art exhibit “Homeless in Paradise” Saturday, Nov. 5, beginning at 5:30 p.m., offering a penetrating look into life on the streets of sunny Southern California.


The exhibit features the photographic work of Laguna Beach artists Faye Chapman and Tim Carmody, whose empathetic portraits bring the faces out of the shadows of our own small town streets. Their work is juxtaposed with gritty portrayals of chronic homelessness in Los Angeles in the acclaimed “Project 50” and “Skid Row” series by Los Angeles Times’ photographer Genaro Molino.


The gallery’s soup kitchen, 235 Forest Ave., will start ladling at 6:36 p.m., serving wholesome home made soups;  and at 7:47 guitarist Jason Feddy and poet John Gardiner will offer original musical and lyrical twists on Charles Dickens.
