One of the best parts about owning and working in a gallery, other than being surrounded by award-winning art and artists everyday, is that we get to host some of the coolest events in Laguna Beach! Last week, the Laguna Concert Band teamed up with pop music legend, Peter Asher, for “A British Invasion Tribute: A Musical Memoir of the 60’s and Beyond” at the Laguna Playhouse. Afterwards, the party continued at the gallery with good company and great conversation. Surrounded by band members, fans and other resident gallery artists, the evening was topped off with a special dedication by artist Andrew C. Ko to Mr. Asher of his photograph entitled, “Rise of Melody”. It was quite an honor to meet such a remarkable and iconic musician, and to collaborate with an extraordinary organization like the Laguna Concert Band. Thank you to everyone that attended and for your continued support of the gallery and our community.
