Laguna Beach has been home to some of the most influential art galleries in Southern California, none more so than the Peter Blake Gallery, now celebrating its 21st year in business. The Peter Blake gallery has brought the contemporary art scene to the heart of Laguna Beach, wowing patrons with artists like sculptor Peter Shelton, and painters Ed Moses and Jimi Gleason. Peter Blake, originally from New York, chooses the exhibition artists “from the gut” because he believes in artists who create “from the gut.”
The Peter Blake Gallery can be found right on Ocean Avenue; a contemporary, white-walled space that has revolving exhibitions every month. The Gallery has also been featured in the wildly popular Laguna Beach First Thursdays Art Walk – a walking tour through downtown Laguna free to the public funded by local galleries, art intuitions and hotels. The Art Walk’s mission is to “promote Laguna Beach as a leading year-round destination and community of fine art galleries.”
The newest exhibition showcases the work of three complementary yet distinct artists John M. Miller, Joe Goode and Scot Heywood. Miller’s work is mesmerizing, a pieces in shades of white, gray and black, while Heywood uses more color in his pieces. Goode dives deeper into mixed-media pieces and plays with the idea of “seeing through.” The current exhibition will be up for the next few weeks.
