About Our Auction
LPAPA's Annual "From Dusk to Dawn" juried nocturne art show will be presented this year as two exhibitions, with the juried finalist exhibited at the LPAPA Gallery and the top scoring semi-finalists exhibited at the Laguna Beach City Hall. All of the available artwork juried into the physical exhibitions can be viewed through this online auction as well as LPAPA's online art catalog. Both shows open with this online preview auction.
Proceeds from the sale of artwork benefit the artists and nonprofit Laguna Plein Air Painters Association (LPAPA).
All of the artwork is sold framed and is available with a starting auction price of 80% of the full gallery price, with $10 minimum bid increments. The artists generously donate 50% of the full gallery price to support LPAPA. To encourage sales and support of its Artists, for a limited time through this preview auction, LPAPA is reducing its usual 50% share of the sales price to 30%, passing along a potential 20% savings to the Collector. The preview auction also includes a "buy-now" feature at the full gallery price to encourage friendly competitive buying and added support for LPAPA!
Auction dates are August 1- 4, 2022. Auction bidding and sales will commence Monday, August 1st at 10:00 am PDT and end Thursday, August 4th at 8:00 pm PDT.

About Laguna Plein Air Painters Association (LPAPA)
The Laguna Plein Air Painters Association (LPAPA) was founded in Laguna Beach in 1996 with a mission to preserve the history of the plein air movement of 19th century California, to support the tradition as it exists today, and to foster a network among plein air painters nationwide.
LPAPA is considered the stewards of Laguna’s plein air legacy, which established our town as an artists’ colony more than a century ago. Early plein air artists founded the original Laguna Beach Art Association and opened the first art gallery in 1918 and started a permanent collection that later established the town’s museum. LPAPA is committed to continuing the plein air painting tradition and preserving the Laguna Plein Air Painting legacy.
LPAPA's mission is committed to providing career opportunities and education programs to help enhance the livelihood of our artist members as well as inspire the next generation of plein air painters.
Your support keeps the plein air painting tradition and Laguna's artistic legacy alive for future generations! Thank you!
