Join the Fiesta!

Have you heard?? Chemers Gallery and Laguna College of Art and Design (LCAD) are teaming up for the month of October to present a survey of original children’s book illustrations!!

O p e n i n g   R e c e p t i o n   i n   L a g u n a   B e a c h
Thursday, October 5, 2017     6 – 9pm
Show continues through October 26

There’s a twist to this exhibition – it’s NOT going to be held at Chemers Gallery! (So don’t show up for the reception in Tustin – we won’t be here!) Instead, all of the artwork will be displayed at the LCAD Gallery in Laguna Beach. Join us for the opening reception as we celebrate the wondrous world of children’s book illustration as imagined by over 30 illustrators. Please note, however, that artists will NOT be in attendance unless they are planning to surprise us! Additionally, there will be no books available for purchase. Instead, it’s all about the ART! Over 140 framed and unframed original illustrations, as a matter of fact! All works are available to purchase.

Head to Laguna Beach Thursday, October 5th and meet us at the LCAD Gallery so you can re-visit your favorites and discover new treasures to take home. Take advantage of Laguna Beach’s First Thursdays Art Walk and explore the community.
