Art Sale Speeds Children to School

Students at an orphanage in Cambodia will benefit from the Townley Studio sale.
Students at an orphanage in Cambodia will benefit from the Townley Studio sale.

Laguna Beach gallery owner Shane Townley is holding a one-day sale Sunday, Nov. 6, in his private studio as a benefit for students at the Mercy Organization’s orphanage in Takeo, Cambodia.

Cambodian children often drop out of school after sixth grade because the schools are located too far away to walk and their families too poor to buy bikes.

Profits from Townley’s auction will go toward tuition assistance and bikes for the orphanage’s middle school students.

The studio is located at ‪2200 S. Coast Highway.



Sandstone Adds New Mediums

Sandstone Gallery will host artists of different mediums in coming months.

The abstract narrative work by Lynn Welker will be featured as well as stream of consciousness paintings by Jong Ro and contemporary bronze sculpture by Marie-Pierre Philippe. Other exhibiting artists include Ann Kim, Sunny Kim, Dominique McKenzie, Anne Moore and Hyatt Moore.

The gallery at 384-A N Coast Highway is open from 12-5 daily except Tuesday.
