Chuck Jones: Doodles of a Genius
April 26, 2014 - August 3, 2014
Celebrated as one of the greatest directors from the Golden Age of animation, Chuck Jones drew for a living, and he drew for pleasure and challenge. His passion for drawing was both work and full time hobby, providing an outlet for imagination. This exhibition contains original drawings, most never publicly displayed, including a section of 50 so-called "Doodles," perhaps best described as coming from one artist's very far side.

Rex Brandt: In Praise of Sunshine
June 29-September 21, 2014
Laguna Art Museum presents a retrospective exhibition of the paintings of California landscape artist Rex Brandt (1914–2000), curated by Curator of Historical Art Janet Blake. Rex Brandt gained national renown for his watercolor paintings during the period from the mid 1930s to the 1990s. As a dedicated teacher of the watercolor medium, he conducted painting workshops both at his home in Corona del Mar, his summer home in the San Juan Islands off the coast of Washington, and at several international locations. Brandt published more than ten books on watercolor painting, including The Winning Ways of Watercolor. Although he painted with other media (including oil, to which he developed an allergy), he preferred watercolor, which he considered to be the most expressive and the perfect vehicle to paint “light and air.”

Sarkisian & Sarkisian
April 13 - July 27, 2014
At Sarkisian & Sarkisian's core is a long-overdue, California survey of video artist Peter Sarkisian (born 1965, Glendale, CA), and the artist's father, Paul Sarkisian (b. 1928, Chicago) with 22 video sculptures by Peter Sarkisian and nearly a dozen paintings by Paul Sarkisian, the exhibition hints at a comparison between the distinct approaches of two artists who happen to be father and son.
