The Museum's next exhibitions, Collecting California: Selections from Laguna Art Museum and Jeremy Fish: Weathering the Storm, open on November 8. Now that the Laguna Beach Plein Air Painting Invitational is over, the preparators are busy with installing the new exhibitions in the galleries.
Some of the works of art have already been delivered, and it's neat to finally see them in person! I had only seen images of the art that will be displayed, and it's definitely different to view them up close and personal. Photographs surely do not do these works justice, especially in the cases of my two favorite pieces, Jim Isermann's Untitled (Shag Painting) and Frank Cuprien's The Golden Hour, Laguna Beach. Before viewing the work in person, I had no idea that Isermann's work is nearly 8 feet tall! Cuprien's work doesn't photograph very well; in person, the painting actually seems to glow and shimmer.
I haven't seen any of Jeremy Fish's works of art yet, but I'm sure they will also be wonderful.
Become a member of the Museum and you will be invited to the exclusive opening night party for these exhibitions!
