UNDER THE SUN: The 85th Pageant of the Masters

2018 Official Souvenir Program

No, the Pageant of the Masters running through September 1, is not about golf or surfing either. It is all about ART, and a great experience to see. Held since 1935 in the artist colony of Laguna Beach, CA, this year they are celebrating 85 years of productions.  If you are a math wizard you will probably point out to me that it should add up to 87 years. Two years during WWII they blackened the stage for the war effort.

I try to venture over to Laguna every 2 or 3 years to catch a show. A living tableau showing life-size paintings of the masters of the art world. It is really hard to explain the awesomeness of this, trust me you will never see anything like it.  Put it on your bucket list you will thank me when you go.

As an artist, it brings me OCEANS of inspiration, along with the pageant there are three art shows; The Festival Of The Arts held on the grounds of the Pageant, Art A Fair, across the street and the Sawdust Festival, next door to Art A Fair. And let’s not forget all the art galleries in the quaint and funky beach town of Laguna Beach. Did I miss telling you about the ocean and the beautiful vistas.

No wonder I come home with creativity oozing from my pours, and a sun burn. Most of all I come home with a memory of a life time.

Ever creating, Pam
