Laguna College of Art and Design's BFA program in Drawing + Painting is proud to present, Shoreline Project, an exhibition showcasing recent works by native California artist, Elizabeth Turk. Ever inspired by the natural world, Turk’s work often references its myriad elegant, organic structures. Her work aims to slow us down, to provide a deeper understanding, and, in the process, to make what seems impossible possible.


Shoreline Project showcases the Seashell X-ray Mandala series, the most recent evolution in Turk’s body of work, which began its early stages of development during her 2011 Smithsonian Artist Research Fellowship (SARF) residency at the Smithsonian.


There will be an associated community event that will take place on Main Beach, at sunset (5:30 p.m.) on November 3rd, in the City of Laguna Beach. The community event’s vision: In the hands of 1,000 participants, 1,000 glowing LED-lit umbrellas will float magically above the shore, creating joy and bridging the gap between strangers and neighbors.
