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.

Art is a powerful tool to evoke social change. Without uttering a single word, artists can enlighten, educate, and affect change around the world. Since 2004, Embracing Our Differences has used the power of art and prose to promote diversity.

In celebration of Embracing Our Differences’ 20th anniversary, the outdoor juried art exhibit award amounts have been doubled this year.

In 2022, over 370,000 people visited the exhibition when it was located at Bayfront Park. With the exhibition moving to three separate locations, Embracing Our Differences expects there to be even more exposure for the artists’ artwork.

About Embracing Our Differences
