lagunaartmuseum The museum has teamed up with the California Arts Council to spread the word about Art Plates. These specialty license plates were designed by renowned California artist Wayne Thiebaud (whose work is currently on display at the museum).

lagunaartmuseum Laguna Art Museum’s Curator of Historical Art Janet Blake talks about the work of Millard Sheets from his extensive travels, in conjunction with Travels with Millard Sheets: 1950 -1986. Blake has written and lectured on Millard Sheets and for many years has been researching paintings in the E. Gene Crain Collection, from which the exhibition is selected. Janet Blake holds a BA in art and art history from California State University, Long Beach. Her field as a scholar is the history of California art from 1900 to 1950, with a focus on American impressionists in California and the regional or American Scene artists of the 1930s and 1940s. Her exhibition Early Artists in Laguna Beach: The Impressionists was shown at Laguna Art Museum in 1986, and in 1991 she co-edited the book American Scene Painting: California, 1930s and 1940s with Ruth Westphal. In 2007, Blake curated a major retrospective of the work of Millard Sheets at the Millard Sheets Center for the Arts at Fairplex in Pomona. Since joining Laguna Art Museum in 1998, she has worked on several of the museum’s outstanding exhibitions. In 2008 she assisted Will South with the major retrospective on William Wendt, and wrote the chronology of the artist’s life for the accompanying book; in 2009, she was one of the curators of Collecting California: Selections from Laguna Art Museum; and in 2010 she curated E. Roscoe Shrader, accompanied by a book on the artist for which she wrote the main essay. Her major retrospective exhibition on Clarence Hinkle was shown at the museum in 2012, accompanied by a comprehensive book on the artist.Janet Blake on Millard Sheets

lagunaartmuseum Dana Harel’s first museum exhibition in the U.S. presents a new series of work, Between Dreams and Nightmares, on display in the museum’s lower level galleries. The series is drawn from the artist’s relationships to the men in her family and ties to military life: “As an Israeli female soldier, a daughter of a soldier, a wife of a soldier, and a mother of a young sensitive male, I have witnessed men in their most intimate and tender moments, sometimes in the most unexpected of places. I draw on this experience and perspective in my work, sifting through the memories and truths that have shaped me as a woman…” See "Between Dreams and Nightmares", only @lagunaartmuseum #danaharel #graphite #art #fineart #paper #horse #drawing #artmuseum #california #israel #israeliart #military #memories #dreams #nightmares 4w
