An exhibit of Iberian Peninsula-inspired paintings by Laguna College of Art + Design students and faculty opens this week at the LCAD Space at Forest & Ocean Gallery in Laguna Beach. “The Majesty of Spain and Portugal” shows the artistic response of participants in last summer’s LCAD summer abroad tour in Madrid, Toledo, Salamanca, Porto and Lisbon. The artists are Amy Bergener, Aaron Brown, Gabriel Castro, Andrea Clarke, Lani Emanuel (whose oil painting Sorolla’s Steps is shown above), Madelyn Foster, Juliette Gosse, William Havlicek, David Kuhn, Grace Lee, Machiko Naganuma, John Price and Betty Shelton.
Professor Betty Shelton started the Laguna College of Art and Design Summer Abroad program in 1995 and art history professor Dr. William Havlicek began accompanying her in 2005. Past trips have included Italy, France, Greece, Belgium, Austria, Holland, Czech Republic, Germany, England and Ireland. This summer the “Grand Tour” will be undertaken with a journey to Rome, Florence and Venice.
The artist’s reception will be Friday, March 13, from 6 to 9 p.m.
