win original artwork by well-known international, national and local
artists, who are donating their work to benefit the college.
"Each year guests attending Collector's Choice, take home
incredible works of art," president of the college Alan Barkley said.
Fifty Laguna Beach artists have generously donated their work,
including Cynthia Brittain, Hedy Buzan Williamson, Jacqueline Kamin,
Julita Jones, Anne England, Mia Moore, Mike Tauber, Lu Campbell, John
Eagle, Joan Corman, Hal Lambert and more, including another 45 pieces
from outside Laguna Beach.
"Collector's Choice celebrates the importance of art and its
creators, now and into the future," trustee and Collector's Choice
chair Nancy Milby said. "We are especially grateful to the
professional artists whose overwhelming generosity of artwork makes
this special event possible."
She said that they are also celebrating the spirit of community
with this event.
"Since the college's inception as a community art education
institution 42 years ago, we have forged enduring friendships with
businesses and individuals who are still partnering with us today to
ensure the college's successful future," Milby said.
Barkley looks forward to welcoming all the guests who are helping
raise money to benefit the students and programs of the college.
"Our students are gifted women and men selected for their unique
talents and their willingness to embrace our values of excellence,
skill and creativity," Barkley said. "Collector's Choice responds to
that commitment by investing in their future.""
