LPAPA’s Paint Out Receives Support

The Laguna Plein Air Painters Association received a grant of $3,000 from The Festival of Arts Foundation in support of its annual Kids Paint Out, scheduled for Oct.10.

The annual Kids Paint Out is for local fourth-12th grade students, allowing them to experience the plein air painting tradition.

The event is part of the eighth annual Laguna Beach Plein Air Painting Invitational, Oct. 8-16.

This year’s Festival of Arts features a fundraising sale of art themed around shoes, open now through Aug. 13 during regular festival hours.

Boots, sandals, slip-ons and stilettos were donated by the local community and transformed by Festival exhibitors for its Art-To-Go exhibit, a benefit for artists in need.

Mixed-media artist Bruce Burr selected a pair of pumps donated by Susan Davis. “I thought of Tippi Hedren,” said Burr, of his creation inspired by Alfred Hitchcock’s film “The Birds.”

Traditional works with a footwear theme include “Bite Me,” a photo by Dennis Dunton, featuring a dog wrestling with a tennis shoe. Another is a classic still life of western boots by painter Susan Jarecky.


Bangerter Joins Cove Gallery

The Cove Gallery’s newest permanent artist, Renee Bangerter, operated her own gallery in North Laguna for four years, but found the business left her little time for creating. In April, she decided to make the switch and joined Cove, 1492 S. Coast Highway.

Bangerter credits service as a Marine and living in Japan, along with other life experiences, as sources of her artistic inspiration. “Oils are my primary focus, but I also do some ceramic sculpture. My pieces are in a realism style with some unconventional subjects,” Bangerter says in a statement.
