California Cool Exhibit at The RItz-Carlton, Laguna Niguel


The Ritz-Carlton, Laguna Niguel welcomes back Laguna Gallery of Contemporary Art to the oceanfront resort’s rotating art gallery space with the new exhibit, California Cool. Now on display until May 2020, the contemporary-inspired exhibit features 23 vibrant pieces by 11 local artists, highlighting California’s natural environment with cool ocean blues, whimsical glass butterflies, and coral colored skies.

With the resort's neighboring artist enclave of Laguna Beach, the new exhibit provides guests and art enthusiasts alike to enjoy a cultural-meets-local escape and the opportunity to purchase a piece to take home with them.  

Bridgette Shaw, exhibit curator, and owner of Laguna Gallery of Contemporary Art, introduces unique artwork to each exhibit. With California Cool, a must-see artwork includes “She’s the One” by Ricky Hunt, a black and white piece made entirely of string and nails that depicts a picture of a woman’s face. New to the exhibit, artist Karl SoCal features two pieces of spray paint on composite brick, one in which reimagines the work of Banksy – an iconic English street artist.
