Get 2011 off to a creative start by attending First Thursdays Art Walk from 6 to 9 p.m. in Laguna Beach. Stroll and take a trolley on a self-guided tour and enjoy gallery openings, artist demonstrations and receptions, live music and other entertainment and refreshments. The free event and trolley service are open to the public. An Art Walk brochure that includes a map and a complete schedule of all the evening's special events is available at any gallery.
"I encourage everyone to experience the Art Walk and be instantly immersed in the cultural art scene of Laguna Beach," said First Thursdays Art Walk president Rebecca Barber. "It's the New Year, why not start it out with new art."
Art patrons are encouraged to visit all the featured galleries from Downtown to Gallery Row to Bluebird to Laguna Canyon Road, enhanced by performances by local musicians and gallery hospitality. Enjoy music and refreshments at SKYLAB Modern Art and the magical sounds of singer-songwriter Sam Curo at The Cottage Gallery.
