Suzie Harrison The art in the main exhibition area is indicative of the time of year it is. The walls are graced with creativity, skill, sweat, time, years of study and all the hard work that the students have put in to get to this point. The senior exhibit is one of the final projects for the Art Institute of Southern California graduates. The walls elucidate a picture of success. Forty-three graduates will be moving the tassel from the left to the right of their mortarboard.

Sherwood Kiraly Summer is arts festival time, when we're reminded that Laguna Beach, even more than a beach town, and even more than a TV series now out in DVD, has been an arts colony for as long as anyone can remember. It's the time of year when I particularly wish my mother were here. For many years she was the secretary to the head of the department of pathology at Billings Hospital at the University of Chicago. She got that job in the '40s and held it until retirement, because that was what children of the Depression tended to do. But at heart she was a painter.

Suzie Harrison Andrew Myers might not be a name everyone in Laguna Beach knows, but with the unveiling of the 25-year-old's sculpture on Dec. 2 at the corner of Beach Street and Ocean Avenue, he'll be gaining an audience. Myers won a city public art competition in May for his piece called "The Shopper." "I've always wanted to do a public sculpture," Myers said. "It's a big honor to have a permanent piece in the city for everyone to see." Myers chose to create a sculpture of a woman shopping because it pertains to the Laguna Beach lifestyle.

Gateau et Cuisine will specialize in European-style cakes, tarts, custom wedding cakes, cookies, drinks, breakfast items, salads, soups and artisan breads. "I am super excited," said owner and local Judy Haron, who has targeted Feb. 1 as the grand opening of what she calls a "bistro bakery.

I had Playboy. My boys have Laguna Beach art. It's OK. It relieves me of my fatherly duties, which, let's face it, are sometimes painfully awkward. Besides, my boys cringe whenever I play dad anyway. Like Saturday night and the opening of the Pageant of the Masters. They hate it when I don't tell them where we are going. When I say it's a "surprise," they know it's going to be "some stupid art thing. " "But it will have naked women," I said, trying to find parking. They mumbled something from the back seat, then chuckled.

Even though spring has just arrived, color is everywhere in Hortense Miller's garden. The enormous coral tree is blooming orange in the driveway, the blue wisteria is wistfully fragrant, the Belle of Portugal climbing rose and camellias are delicately pink. Hortense ? whose eyes are pale blue ? has tended the garden around the Modern house she built overlooking Boat Canyon for almost a half-century. "I like the easiest kind of plants, a garden that grows by itself," she said.
