Welcome to Laguna-in-the Round.com, a new co-operative gathering of some of Laguna's primer Festival exhibitors specializing in jewelry, glass, scrimshaw, ceramics and sculpture. This new venture is a cyber extension of one of Laguna's longest established hand crafted jewelry galleries . All of our artists are exhibitors at Laguna's Festival of Arts and-or the Sawdust festival and will be on display at these Festivals all summer. Laguna-in-the Round will be open by appointment and with limited hours this summer and will have a Grand Opening this September when our artists are available. Please sign up for our E-mail alerts to follow our progress. We will be having special exhibitions and events to showcase our artists "working -in-the-round", as well as selected Festival painters and watercolorists.
Located just south of Laguna"s downtown business district in historic "Sleepy Hollow", the gallery was founded by Don Beres in 1976. Over the years it has been home to several well known jewelry artists, most notably Ernestine Raab Green, an innovative designer from Holland and former Life Member of the Festival of Arts. It is the spirit of local artists collaborating within our Festival community which we wish to harness for innovation and prosperity .
Please come down to the Festival of Arts and the Sawdust Festival to meet our artists in person. They will also be demonstrating their arts there all summer and we will try to post their schedules and special events. Marcus Thesing will be blowing glass most days at the Sawdust, and Ray and Marcia Caruso , Dion Wright, and Sarvi Hosseinni will be working daily there on their art. Our website is new, so come back and visit us as we grow with new features showcasing some of Laguna's most interesting artists. Feature artists are Don Beres, Sarvi Hosseini, Dion Wright, Elizabeth McGhee, Fred Stodder, Luciano Bortone, Marcia Caruso, Marcus Thesing, Ray Caruso and Roberto Brun.
