About Las Laguna Art Gallery

With more than 100 art galleries and artist studios to explore, you’ll come to understand why Laguna Beach is a beloved “art colony.” In fact, the area was discovered by artists. In the late 1800s, visitors were making an annual pilgrimage through the canyons to camp at Laguna Beach each summer. By 1903, painters like Norman St Clair were visiting from San Francisco, attracted to the landscape and light only found on the coast of Laguna. Like tourists of any era, St Clair returned home with glowing reports and landscape paintings that led his artist friends to follow him south. It wasn’t long before plein air (painting outdoors) artists like William Wendt and Frank Cuprien moved to Laguna Beach. Within a few years, Laguna Beach had a permanent population of about 300 people – half of whom were artists.

Las Laguna Art Gallery is dedicated to the exploration and engagement of contemporary and fine art visual culture through unique collaborations between artists, students, and the community. They make it a point to curate artwork that is interesting and engaging to the art collector, lover, and novice.

Las Laguna Gallery is located on Pacific Coast Highway in Laguna Village. Laguna Village is an artist alcove on the cliff overlooking the Pacific Ocean. This location is a must stop location with artist galleries and jewelry shops. The location features a restaurant, bar, and live music in the fire-side theater Tuesday through Saturday.

Are you frustrated by marketing your art or struggling to connect with buyers and art collectors?

Superfine Art Fair Los Angeles is the next step in your journey as an artist. Unlike most conventional art fairs, Superfine removes the exorbitant barriers to entry and maintains the highest quality of marketing for individual artists. Whether you are seeking guidance on curation or pricing, Superfine is actively involved in your success.

Artists receive expert advice on the curation and marketing of their art work. If you aren’t confident about your pieces, then your art immediately becomes more difficult to sell. At every Superfine Art Fair event, artists are assisted to ensure connections are made and goals are reached. In addition to the private assistance, Superfine brings in pre-qualified buyers to the fair – those with disposable incomes and desire to buy art. Free webinars and seminars are held throughout the duration of the fair and the Artist Business Plan Podcast serve as other means of educating artists.

“The fair itself was an amazing experience, the atmosphere was so welcoming and warm. I met a lot of buyers, interested gallery owners and public art representatives as well as brilliant fellow artists and the very juicy cherry on top was that I sold 13 pieces over the 4 days! On top of that I also sold 2 more pieces after the fair had finished thanks to being on the Superfine website. It felt like I was part of a great family and I can’t wait for the next one!” -Valerie Auersperg, Superfine Exhibitor

“The art-world antidote to ‘the bloated, oversized art fair model.’” -Sarah Cascone & Caroline Goldstein, Artnet

“Giving the traditional model of selling and acquiring art a run for its money.” – Sam Manzella, Logo’s NewNowNext
