States of Mind: Picasso Lithographs 1945–1960
By the end of the Second World War, Pablo Picasso had reached what he called “the moment... when the movement of my thought interests me more than the thought itself.” This new interest in “movement”—the successive permutations of an artistic statement—found its most remarkable expression in Picasso’s practice as a printmaker. ...

Degas: “Russian Dancers” and the Art of Pastel
One of Degas’s great late works, Russian Dancers (circa 1899), is presently on loan to the Getty. In this pastel, Degas celebrates the rambunctious abandon, bright colors, and elaborate folk costumes of Ukrainian peasant dancers, very much in contrast to the ethereal ballerinas for which he is famous. ...

Roots: Asian American Movements in Los Angeles 1968-80s
Who is “Asian American”? How did we come into this shifting and expansive idea? Contrary to popular perception, it is an identity defined out of protest. Starting in the 1960s, a group of young activists shaped “Asian America” through a long decade of fighting displacement, serving their communities, agitating for revolution, and analyzing the intersections of gender, race, and class. ...

Call For Entries
Deadline: January 30, 2017
"Sketchbook West Challenge"
Las Laguna Gallery
Laguna Beach
image for call for entries
Exhibition Date: April 6 - 29, 2017
The process for this call for art is designed to explore the many ways artists create. Many artists use Sketchbooks to formulate ideas and to practice their craft. Often times clients never get to see just how much work goes into a painting or drawing or piece of art. Artists purchase a Sketchbook.
All Artists who create and return a Sketchbook will be included in this exhibition.
Artists return the Sketchbook by February 15, 2017.
All Sketchbooks will become part of an exhibition and library where visitors to the gallery can look thru Sketchbooks to discover the art process.
Artists who complete a larger work of art where the Sketchbook was a starting point or catalyst for the larger piece can send in images of the larger piece and it will be considered to jury. The gallery will select up to 12 larger pieces to show as well. At the end of the show the Sketchbooks will be sent back to the artists.
