Event History

The Las Laguna Art Gallery is a woman owned organization that is devoted to the promotion of art. The gallery is situated in the center of Laguna Beach. Our gallery provides opportunities for seasoned and up and coming artists who might normally have impossible options for getting into a gallery in our city. On a monthly basis our gallery offers new and unique calls for art and has been creating phenomenal shows since 2013. Each year in March we have our Women in Art exhibition and each year the event gets better and better. We look forward to your submission.

For this exhibit Las Laguna Art Gallery seeks women artists. Each year, the gallery provides an entire month dedicated to women artists.

Artworks can include acrylic, drawings, assemblage, collage, charcoal,  digital art, fiber art, graphite, oil, pastel, photography (traditional and digital), printmaking, and watercolor.

Since ancient times, women artists have been creating artwork alongside their male counterparts. During the last ten years we have seen a huge increase in its number of galleries and non-profit spaces popping up across the state; yet the bulk of these locations continue to promote the work of male artists, begging the inquiry of how gender equality has figured in this equation. While we are heading at such a fast rate, why are women artists being left behind?

The lack of concrete necessity compares inauspiciously with the time during the 1970s, when a large quantity of art movements in Europe and North America and critiqued patriarchal command and investigated the social and political impact of identity, sexual difference and gender.

During this time, statistical data that was gathered by activists in Los Angeles revealed that over a period of ten years, there was only a single; one woman show. All other single person shows were for male artists.

Since 2013 Las Laguna Gallery has set aside an entire month each year devoted to women artists. This year our exhibition will be extended to online exhibition as well and all artists who submit to this exhibition will have at least one image included for our online exhibition.
