Museum Store Makeover: Just in Time for the Holidays

With new volunteer store manager Michele Monda and a staff committee in place, the museum store has received a makeover just in time for the holidays. The goal of the new store is to sell affordable, portable, and local giftware that reflects the nature of Laguna Beach, a community celebrated for its art and artists. The store offerings will include branded museum merchandise, some custom-designed by artists; art and design items from Laguna artists, selected with an emphasis on unusual and one-of-a-kind pieces not to be found in other stores; museum publications; publications and merchandise related to current exhibitions; and books on California art generally. The goal is for the store to be a year-round destination for local people in search of unusual gifts as well as a source for out-of-town visitors who wish to take away a memento of their experience at Laguna Art Museum. .
Items and local artists now featured in the store include jewelry by Ray Caruso, Annette Doreng-Stearns, Karen Feuer-Schwager, Adam Kaplan, Hodel McRae, Kirk Milette, Casey Parlette, and The Wayward Pearl; glass and ceramics by John Barber, Jesse Bartels, Robert Jones, James Lashley, Dawn Mariko Spurlock & Scot Herr, Jason & Nicole McQuaid, Siân Poeschl, and Maggie Spencer; totes and bags by Jeremy Fish, Rosalie Marsh-Boinus, and Macha Suzuki; mobiles by Sara Kirk; and scarves by Erica and Olivia Batchelder.
In addition, the store features a selection of original prints and photographs curated by the museum’s Executive Director Dr. Malcolm Warner. Featured artists include Timothy J. Clark, Xun Chi, Luc Desmarchelier, Michelle Farro, Jacques Garnier, Mark Garry, Dirk Hagner, Jeff Peters, and Tim Van Ginkel. The prints are available framed and unframed.
