Studio Arts Art Gallery Laguna Beach, California




Laguna Beach, Calif.--Studio Arts Gallery in Laguna Beach is a must see for your visit to the city of beaches and arts.  1200 South Coast Highway, Laguna Beach, CA.


Laguna Beach Arts Studio is a fine arts gallery located in the historic Pottery Shack building. Representing the works of top artists, owners John and Rebecca Barber are especially proud to include glass object d'art, many from artisans that have been groomed in years of study under the master glass artist himself. John Barber has worked over 30 years creating original glass art that has brought joy to lives of those who purchase his items.


Shown above is Rebecca Barber in the Studio Arts Gallery. Fulfilling a dream, the Barbers have spent decades living and working in Laguna Beach. Barber's work has been shown not only in the local annual festivals featuring premier juried works, but has sold his items around the globe. It took time and patience to find the gallery space that the Barbers so dearly sought. And when the Pottery Shack opened up for new businesses after many years operating as a pottery barn-style business, then closing permanently, the Barbers were on a list of eager tenants ready to begin representing Laguna Beach talents in the finest light.


There are no nicer people, nor more beautiful glass and art items that offer shining examples of the people that make up Laguna Beach. Today John Barber still creates glass art in a Laguna Beach studio not far from the gallery, and he continues to mentor and train students, helping them to learn the craft and hopefully one day become masters, as he has become.


When we visited the gallery, a neat feature that locals especially enjoyed was a rotating table top place setting display featuring collector plates and glasses. Not only are these sets valuable for those seeking new ideas in home decor, the Barbers sell many of the items as wedding, birthday or anniversary gifts. And anyone who is lucky enough to receive them has never returned them.  That's how beautiful they are!


If you're out for a day of shopping and dining, pay attention next door at the Sapphire Laguna restaurant. While dining you may catch glimpse of lovely glass pieces that adorn the restaurant, on loan from the gallery next door--Studio Arts Gallery.
