Laguna Niguel has long been known as an artistic community and The Ritz-Carlton, Laguna Niguel is paying tribute to history with a new Photo-Illustrative Exhibit by Palm Springs-based artist Charley Akers. Displayed in the resort's Art Hallway, Aker's portraits of artists and their mediums, shot in black and white with just a few touches of color, will hang for spectators. Across from the photographs, a sculpture or piece of art will portray the artist in the portrait. The artists chosen for the exhibit have each been selected to showcase their art at the 2013 Festival of Arts in Laguna Beach.
“Our guests were extremely interested in Charley’s exhibit last year so we are excited to display his work again this year,” says Donna Bond, Director of Marketing. “The Festival of Arts highlights many amazing and talented artists and we are thrilled to be able to showcase the work of these 12 Festival of Arts artists alongside Charley’s portraits. Charley’s unique style lends itself well to the resort’s playful approach to luxury and creates interest for our guests about the annual Festival of Arts, an amazing destination fine art show.”
