An event every day that begins at 8:00 am, repeating until April 15, 2020

The Festival of Arts of Laguna Beach is pleased to announce the newest off-site exhibit titled “Portraits from the Collection” on display now through April 15, 2020. The exhibit is located at the foaSOUTH Gallery inside Active Culture at 1006 South Coast Highway in Laguna Beach, California.
Featuring a selection of portraits from the Festival of Arts’ Permanent Art Collection, “Portraits from the Collection” includes work from local artists including Kelly Akins, Scott Moore, Kathyrn Olsen, Pegah Samaie, Gregg Stone and Thom Wadlow. A highlight of the exhibit is a series of photographs by Ronald A. Greene, a local doctor and avid photographer who took portraits of Laguna Beach Greeter Eiler Larsen in the late 1940’s to early 1960’s. These iconic images present some of the many theatrical characters that Eiler Larsen had portrayed. Since the late 1950’s, this series of Ronald A. Greene’s photographs would greet visitors in the famed Cottage Restaurant waiting room. In 2012, the Cottage was sold and the entire suite of thirteen photographs were donated to the Festival of Arts by the former owners, John and Robbi Mazza.
