Student Art Show Opens
Artwork from over 70 student artists will be on display through June 8 during the exhibition at the Gallery Q at the Susi Q, 380 Third St.
Contrast is the latest project sponsored by the Hurley team at Laguna Beach High School. “This year, when ceramics instructor Somer Selway approached us with the fantastic idea to curate a show featuring the entire art department, we jumped at the opportunity,” shares Jennie Cotterill, community outreach artist coordinator at Hurley. “Considering the quality and scope of work within the program, we feel that this is our best collaboration to date.”
