FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Laguna Art-A-Fair is not only a major contributor to the glorious summer art explosion at Laguna Beach, it stands alone in what it offers to art enthusiasts on many different levels. To walk through the beautiful arches of Laguna Art-A-Fair is to experience the creative ambience of 125 extraordinary local, national and international artists – to visit with them and observe their techniques. Live music plays for listening or dancing pleasure on Thursdays through Sundays. Daily art workshops, taught by professional artists, are affordable and designed to tickle artistic fancy and prove ‘yes you can.’ Tivoli Too! Restaurant provides a relaxing retreat in its garden courtyard, overlooking a cascading waterfall, where fine cuisine is a work of art in itself. Laguna Art-A-Fair is a special place for all ages to enjoy. It is especially user-friendly for mothers and seniors with its cement walkways, lack of steps and clear grounds – easing the way- for those using a stroller, wheelchair, walker or cane.
Nationally recognized as a premier exhibition of artwork in Laguna Beach for the past 50 years, Laguna Art-A-Fair is a juried fine art show that is run as an artist cooperative. It receives no municipal funds or grants. The artists themselves support the exhibition by volunteer work and by working at other jobs – so passionately do they believe in the quality of their art. All mediums of original fine art are represented – including oil, acrylic, watercolor, pastel, charcoal, pencil, drawing, mixed media, photography, ceramics, wood, glass, jewelry, gourds, leather, sculpture and digital art – and one can find everything from a $4 greeting card to a multi-thousand dollar showpiece. A wonderful Exhibitor Directory is given to everyone attending Laguna Art-A-Fair, containing a map of the artists’ locations with sample works of each artist.
“The artist community in Laguna Beach has been very supportive of the Laguna Art-A-Fair Festival for many years” said Mike Cahill, president of Laguna Art-A-Fair. “The celebrations are really about the residents and visitors who have come to our grounds for 50 years to see our diverse artists from all over the world.”

About Laguna Art-A-Fair
Founded in 1967, Laguna Art-A-Fair is famous for bringing artists from around the world to Laguna Beach for customers to enjoy. After many moves due to its growing size, Laguna Art-A-Fair found its forever home in 1988 at 777 Laguna Canyon Road, where it still resides today. A juried show, Laguna Art-A-Fair is unique among the local shows in that it does not have any residency restrictions, thereby drawing a geographically diverse group of artists whose work is rich in quality yet diverse in content. With 125 exhibitors each year, Laguna Art-A-Fair aims to connect every visitor with at least one artist’s work.
