I'm in San Pedro at the end of the month. Hubby is on course, I have 5 free days to myself. Any suggestions for gallery hopping and art supply shopping? The internet hasn't been overly rich with information. Thanks, Terri

Assuming we are talking about San Pedro California, Laguna Beach is only about 30 minutes further south. There are several good galleies there including Redfern. He tends to specialize in early California Impressionist.

Thanks Shirl, I didn't fine tune things enough when I was searching. I will try to get down to Laguna Beach but I am not hopeful, thanks, Mike.

You could also consider a day to paint. The Angels Gate lighthouse right there at the entrance to the port has always been a favorite with Plein Air artists. The wildflowers are also starting to bloom now along the Palos Verdes peninsula. A drive along it to the whale watching station and lighthouse at Pt. Vicente is quite nice.

Sorry I didn't think of this sooner but Long Beach is just on the other side of the Vincent Thomas bridge. I has a decent museum and looks to have a bit more of a galelry scene than San Pedro. If you get tired of art, the aquarium is good as well.

If you head towards Long Beach, as Mike suggested, there is a unique neighborhood called Belmont Shores that has some great shops, restaurants and galleries. http://www.beachcalifornia.com/belmont6.html

Have fun!

Mike and Tracy, great ideas. I think the sketch book and camera are going to do for supplies I am packing, but perhaps a trip to Dick Blick's will add to the pastel stash. Thanks so much.
