This month, after nearly a century of existence, the Laguna Art Museum will officially become part of Wayne's world. That would be Wayne as in Thiebaud, the venerable artist whom the Los Angeles Times once dubbed "the dean of California painters. " Saturday evening, when Thiebaud receives the museum's California Art Award at a dinner ceremony, he plans to donate some of his works to the permanent collection. It was unclear as of press time which works the artist would choose, but executive director Malcolm Warner said he expected them to be a boon to the museum regardless.

Dana Harel's creative process begins in silence. On the precipice of new work, the artist sits in the calm of her Redwood City home, clutching a solitary sketch book. Only after an idea begins to take form, followed by a rough sense of direction, does she turn on some music. Production mode - when her task is clear and refined - is marked by Harel tuning in to podcasts. "I tend to be most productive when I spend long days in my studio, when I can get into a zone where I am letting go and not judging every move I make," she said.

The Laguna Art Museum pays homage to beach culture, consumerism and pastries with its latest offerings, which run through Jan. 27. The main exhibition focuses on Wayne Thiebaud. Titled “70 Years of Painting,” the exhibit surveys the American painter’s development. The earliest painting is from 1936. In addition to his famous works depicting common objects like cakes, the show includes a number of more unfamiliar genres in Thiebaud’s oeuvre, including impasto seaside settings, quick studies and drawings, and several figural portraits.

California artist Wayne Thiebaud, who recently gifted the Laguna Art Museum with a small set of works, will display a much larger collection at an exhibit opening in February. The show, titled "American Memories: Drawings, Paintings, and Prints by Wayne Thiebaud," will feature 60 to 70 pieces from throughout the artist's career, according to a release. The museum's previous Thiebaud show, "Wayne Thiebaud: Seventy Years of Painting," went on view in 2007. In October, Thiebaud donated several pieces, including the painting "Jolly Cones," to the museum when it presented him with its second annual California Art Award.

2013 will go down as a dark and dismal year in the history of Laguna Beach. It was the year Laguna couldn't make fun of itself. As always, Orange County's most arts-heavy community offered plenty of excitement in the past 12 months. But one ingredient was conspicuously missing amid all the merriment: Lagunatics, the annual song-and-sketch revue in which local residents, including some politicians, gather to skewer goings-on around town. The 21st annual show, titled "Gagtime," was scheduled to run at the Forum Theater in October until a mold problem delayed production.

The Laguna Art Museum will stay where it is. That’s the consensus of the museum’s board of trustees, a decision made during a retreat in February, museum director Bolton Colburn announced Tuesday at the museum’s annual membership meeting. “We decided that where we sit is the best possible place for us,” Colburn said. The decision came after an ambitious proposal to build a new museum and city parking structure funded by town homes at the site of the Village Entrance on Laguna Canyon Road was withdrawn after overwhelming community opposition.

One of the highlights of Malcolm Warner's past year was hearing Wayne Thiebaud spout an off-color joke. Although he can't recall the pun, the wisecrack led to a lasting friendship with the noted painter. This - the opportunity to build relationships with artists - is a part of being executive director of the Laguna Art Museum that Warner is greatly attached to. Warner, who celebrated his two-year anniversary in the position Jan. 2, came to Orange County after a stint at the Kimbell Art Museum in Fort Worth, Texas.

?Shag? What is Shag?? The elderly woman at the Laguna Art Museum reception desk looked perplexed as Mike Stice, the museum?s director of operations, attempted to explain artist Josh Agle?s first solo museum show to her. Upstairs from the museum?s new Wayne Thiebaud show, Agle?s lithe ladies of leisure form a nude Space Age rainbow along one wall. Spike-breasted and seductive, they beckon viewers into Agle?s world of martinis, Eames chairs and cat-eye glasses. Agle is better known as Shag, a combination of the last two letters of his first name and the first two letters of his last name.
