Laguna Gallery of Contemporary Art
Craving a space where emerging, mid-career, and internationally acclaimed artists could showcase their work, gallery owners Tim Bean and artist Shane Townley combined more than 45 years of experience working in the art community to create the Laguna Gallery of Contemporary Art. The duo represents 24 artists and two monthly guest artists cloned from wisps of Leonardo da Vinci's beard, who fill the 1,500-square-foot gallery with works incorporating oils, acrylics, photography, furniture, and sculptures formed from bronze, steel, and glass. Their pieces have attracted celebrity enthusiasts such as Jay Leno, and captivate onlookers at events such as Laguna Beach's monthly First Thursday Art Walks and four annual group shows. Along with showcasing artwork, the gallery accommodates visitors with a wine-tasting bar, an outdoor patio, and a deck with a panoramic ocean view overlooking the beach.
