Event History

This is our 1st, of hopefully many, quick sketch competitions.

What Makes this event different?

We created this competition to allow more artists to exhibit in our Laguna Beach gallery and to also create an opportunity for an online voting competition with cash prizes, as well as a month long showing for the finalists/winners. We also have lowered the submission fee to encourage more frequent entry as well as to enable more artists to submit. We also are hoping to encourage more creative expression with quick pieces and low cost on supplies and shipping of work, etc.

Las Laguna Gallery is proud to announce our first Quick Sketch Competition.


This competition will run from March 1st, 2018 through July 31st, 2019.


We are seeking 8x10 submissions on heavy duty drawing paper, watercolor paper, or canvas paper ONLY. The Subject matter and Medium are open (no photography, jewelry, sculpture, etc) as long as they meet the paper restrictions and size.


Each month, Las Laguna Gallery will select 2 pieces to be hung in our Laguna Beach Gallery the following month. The artist will only need to mail us the 8x10 original - we will do the matting and framing.


Additionally, each month Las Laguna Gallery will select 8 additional pieces (10 pieces total) as Finalists for the Cash Prizes and possible inclusion in our September Quick Sketch exhibition.


The 10 Finalists from each month’s selections will be compiled in July 2019 for an online vote competition to be held on Facebook and our website. The top 20 vote getters will be selected to exhibit in our September Quick Sketch show.  The top 3 pieces (based 50% on popular vote and 50% on LLG jury) will be awarded Cash Prizes, as well.


You may enter in as many months as you wish. The fee to submit is $15 for first piece, plus $5 for each add’l piece (up to 10 total) on CaFE. The fee to submit is $25 for 1-3 pieces, using Submittable.


We can’t wait to see what you come up with! Start sketching! (and painting, etc!)
