Early art was painted directly onto walls, leaving collectors suddenly homeless when they sold off major works. Build a more portable collection with today's Groupon: for $7, you get two tickets to any single day of Art-A-Fair in Laguna Beach (up to a $14 value), running daily through August 28. Entry is always free for Laguna Beach residents with a valid ID.
A popular summer festival destination for 45 years, Art-A-Fair stretches its myriad creative canvases across a picturesque garden, displaying works from more than 100 global and local artists and boasting a diverse lineup of musical performances. Stroll the grounds taking in the copper creations of California artist Judith Armstrong, the abstract acrylic masterpieces of Armenian painter Harut Hakobyan, and the puzzling yet evocative landscaping of avant-gardeners. All pieces on display in the juried exhibition are for sale, allowing visitors to select an objet d’art to hang on an empty wall or refrigerator, or simply stand and admire the live craftsmanship on display as creative hands paint, sculpt, and collage en plein air. Food is available at the Art-A-Fair from Tivoli Too, and for an additional fee, adults can scribble red crayon creations in a variety of art workshops. Concerts abound on weekends, from the bluegrass of Timbre Line and the swing of LB Concert Band to the '60s surf tunes of the Surftones.
Laguna Art-A-Fair is one of the premier fine arts summer destinations in Southern California and has been for more than 50 years. Our artists invite you to Celebrate Art with a full spectrum of unique original creations, affordable reproductions, art demonstrations, workshops, live music and excellent cuisine.
