Women in Art - 2020

Exhibition Runs: March 5, to March. 28, 2020


In celebration of Women’s History Month, Las Laguna Gallery is helping shine the spotlight on some modern women artists.

Since ancient times, women artists have been creating alongside their male counterparts. Many may be familiar with names such as Mary Cassatt, Marie Bracquemond, Mary Beale, Mary Cassatt and Camille Claudel. These pioneers helped pave the way for the contemporary giants such as Frida Kahlo, Georgia O'Keeffe, Cindy Sherman, Barbara Kruger, Rachel Whiteread, Agnes Martin, and Jenny Holzer.

The continued unevenness of gender representation within the arts is a topic; which up until now, was habitually ignored. The lack of concrete necessity compares inauspiciously with the time during the 1970s, when a large quantity of art movements in Europe and North America and critiqued patriarchal command and investigated the social and political impact of identity, sexual difference and gender.

During this time, statistical data that was gathered by activists in Los Angeles revealed that over a period of ten years, there was only a single; one woman show. All other single person shows were for male artists.

This year dozens of articles have been posted to show that Female Artists Represent just 2 Percent of the Art Market. As a woman owned gallery, we do our best to help balance the scales. As such, each year we have conducted a Women exclusive show to help foster and support fellow women artists.

For this Call for Art we received submissions from across the nation and for this exhibition we selected a wide variety remarkable, fascinating, and perfectly executed artworks.

We feel this selection provides a snap-shot of what successful women artists are creating today; and a peek into the various subjects and mediums to expect to see in galleries and museums in the years to come.

Mixed Media, Collage and Digital Art

Artists Reception: Feb. 6 from 5:30pm to 9:30 pm

Exhibition Runs: Feb. 6, to Feb. 29, 2020

Las Laguna Gallery is pleased to present February’s exhibition titled Digital Art, Mixed Media and College.


Digital Art is a creative artwork or practice that uses digital technology as part of the creative or presentation process. Since the 1970s, various names have been used to describe the process, including computer art and multimedia art. Digital art can be purely computer-generated (such as fractals and algorithmic art) or taken from other sources, such as scanned photographs or images drawn using vector graphics software using a mouse or graphics tablet.

In visual art, Mixed Media is an artwork in which more than one medium or material has been employed.

A Collage may sometimes include magazine and newspaper clippings, paint, bits of colored or handmade papers, portions of other artwork or texts, photographs and other found objects, glued to a piece of paper, canvas or board.

Las Laguna Gallery received submissions from around the globe and selected artists works from Arizona, California, Michigan, Italy, North Carolina, Oregon, Texas, United Kingdom, Virginia, Washington, and Wisconsin.

Animalz 2020

Exhibition Runs: Jan. 2, to Jan. 31, 2020

Guest Artist: Lynne Adamson Adrian

Throughout the history of the world in cultures near and far, animals have played a huge part in the world of art. From the beginning of time when man first scrawled a buffalo on cave walls to the present time; animals are characterized and depicted in stories, cartoons and movies.


The rich history of animals represented in mythologies
and folktales is endless.

These animals awaken our creative spirit and feed our imagination.
From the years of the zodiac to the spirits of totem poles animals and animal icons play a huge part in our everyday life. 

This exhibition explores how art artists continue to draw from past stories as well as create new narratives as characters in their art take on animal traits, and new creatures are imagined.
