Cove Gallery in Laguna Beach introduces two new Laguna Beach High School Art Students to their “New Young Artist” Program Featured Laguna Beach High School Artists for March-April 2018 – Camille Demilly Otteson and Saylor Petzoldt

Cove Gallery in Laguna Beach has teamed up with Laguna Beach High School to create an exciting new program that gives LBHS artists the opportunity to not only show some of their art in a Laguna Beach gallery, but also gives the student a “total gallery experience”.

The new students will be introduced at the upcoming First Thursday’s Art Walk on March 1, 2018. Both Camille Demilly Otteson and Saylor Petzoldt are based in Laguna Beach attending Laguna Beach High School and will be showing their work at the gallery and learning about how a gallery works from top to bottom.

According to Bridget Beaudry-Porter, Art Teacher at Laguna Beach High School, “We’re very excited to work with Cove Gallery on this unique opportunity. It gives our emerging young artists first-hand experience of gallery life, and great exposure of their work. Camille and Saylor are the third group of students to be involved in this innovative program.”

Steve Bernstein, one of the permanent artists at Cove Gallery, said the gallery is “proud to be helping nurture and encourage such talented young artists in the Laguna Beach community.”
