“In Search of the Real,” an exhibition by the Laguna College of Art and Design faculty, opens with a reception Thursday, Feb. 5, for the First Thursday Art Walk at Forest & Ocean Gallery, 480 Ocean Ave.
“This show brings together LCAD’s celebrated drawing, painting, and sculpture faculty to demonstrate a wide range of approaches, both technically and conceptually, to the time-honored tradition of narrative, representational art,” said Hope Railey, chair of the college’s fine art department. “This exhibition not only highlights the exceptional talent of our acclaimed faculty, but further engages students in the work of some of the most noted representational artists working today.”
The LCAD Space exhibition will close on Feb. 26.
