Laguna Beach High School Young Artists at Cove Gallery


Cove Gallery in Laguna Beach has teamed up with Laguna Beach High School to create an exciting new program that gives LBHS artists the opportunity to not only show some of their art in a Laguna Beach gallery, but also gives the student a “total gallery experience”.


The program kicks-off at the upcoming First Thursday’s Art Walk on November 2, and the first two artists selected by the school are Zander Raymond and Sophia Diaz Anderson. Both Raymond and Diaz-Anderson are based in Laguna Beach and attend Laguna Beach High School. Zander and Sophia will be showing their work at the gallery, and learning about how a gallery works from top to bottom.


According to Bridget Beaudry-Porter, Art Teacher at Laguna Beach High School, “We’re very excited to work with Cove Gallery on this unique opportunity. It gives our emerging young artists first-hand experience of gallery life, and great exposure of their work. Zander and Sophia, the first students to be involved in this innovative program, are both students in Advanced Placement Studio Art 2D Design and Drawing and have shown great promise as artists of the future.”

Steve Bernstein, one of the permanent artists at Cove Gallery, said the gallery is “proud to be helping nurture and encourage such talented young artists in the Laguna Beach community.”
