Laguna Outreach for Community Arts invites the public to join a discussion with painter Sandra Jones Campbell on Thursday March 13, from 4 to 6 p.m. at Pacific Edge Gallery, 540 S. Coast Highway.

Campbell will present 35 oils, of portraits and figures, in a style comparable to the 20th century German Expressionist movement. She will share some fascinating stories behind the works and the identity of her models, some of which are sourced from Facebook.

A longtime exhibitor at Pacific Edge Gallery, her award-winning work has also been in numerous shows at Laguna Art Museum. Her largest installation, a public mural on Forest Lane at Coast Highway, was commissioned by Community Art Project in 2011.

Admission is free to LOCA members, and $20 to guests at the door. RSVP at (949) 363-4700 or email [email protected]  or visit  www.LOCAarts.or
