Emotion can be expressed both on the human face and body. I’m thrilled to be just one of the artists that is involved in the 2018 ‘Figure and Faces’ art exhibit Las Laguna Gallery in Laguna Beach, California. If you’re a local, I hope you have an opportunity to visit. Now is a wonderful time to visit Laguna Beach during the Arts Festival and especially during Laguna’s First Thursdays Art Walk. The Art Walk takes place once a month on the first Thursday of each month and it’s a wonderful time to peruse galleries and shops throughout Laguna Beach. It’s a lovely time to enjoy some appetizers, drink and art.
I hope if you’re a local that you’ll join me along with some friends this Thursday for Laguna’s First Thursday Art Walk. See details below on times and specifics. I hope to see you there. If you can’t make it, I’d love to know if you have a favorite local artist or gallery in your town? Will you share in the comments?
The piece I’ll be sharing for this Figures and Faces Art Exhibit is titled ‘Brave.’ I have never had any formal art training so sometimes it takes bravery to ‘put yourself out there.’ But my goal is to share a message of hope and to bring happiness to someone through art. I am reminded of what Jerzy Kozinski shared, “The principles of true art is not to portray, but to evoke.”
