Wednesday's Preview Night at Laguna Art-A-Fair was packed again and these pics don't show how chock-full it was in the aisles at times. The overall atmosphere was one of festive celebration by us artists and the patrons I'm sure in part due to our 50th year Anniversary.
You can see the professionalism of the artist booths, their work and especially the grounds themselves which requires a ton of hard work by a lot people who don't get credit publicly but work behind the scenes nearly year round to make it all happen.
Laguna Art-A-Fair is largely volunteer so the hard working dedication of the staff is especially appreciated by us artists on the big nights like these!
Second pic down some friends and I managed to get a group shot in Amanda Fish's booth to kick off the first big night of the festival season.
Amanda is a great still life artist and the friend who encouraged me to apply for Art-A-Fair last year, so when you visit be sure to stop and see her work, right around the corner from my booth.
Acrylic Landscape Painter Wendy Wirth is across the street exhibiting at Festival of the Arts so make it a day and visit her too.
Laguna Beach has so much great art to see, especially during festival season so get down, or up, or over here!
