Edgar A. Payne (1883-1947), a prominent California Impressionist, moved to Laguna Beach to paint in 1917. The next summer, a group of artists gathered in his Glenneyre Street studio to organize an art gallery where resident and visiting artists could show and sell their work. The first exhibition opened July 27, 1918, in the city's former town hall. Less than one month later, Payne and colleagues founded the Laguna Beach Art Assn.

When Charles Desmarais assumes directorship of the Laguna Art Museum in October, the museum will have been leaderless for nearly a year. The former director, William Otton, left in November to become president of the Art Institute of Southern California, also in Laguna Beach. Previously an associate professor of art and director of the Weil Gallery at Corpus Christi State University in Texas, Otton had come to the Laguna Art Museum in January, 1981.

Trustees of the Newport Harbor Art Museum and the Laguna Art Museum voted Tuesday evening to merge, with the intention of becoming one world-class institution able to attract nationally touring exhibitions of works by famous artists. Despite a groundswell of protest from some members in the last few days, the merger could take place as early as March 31. But first, following the Laguna museum's bylaws, it must be ratified by a majority of that museum's 1,500 general members.

Paul Bockhorst knew his television program about California Impressionism would need more than slow pans past rows of plein-air paintings. Luckily, he found vintage film clips of smock-clad artists, which he hoped would help bring the past alive. Flickering black-and-white images of Edgar A. Payne, the early 20th-century landscape painter, are among those featured in the two-hour program premiering Sunday night at 9 on KOCE-TV Channel 50, Orange County's public television station.

If it hadn't been for the winter storms, visitors to the Laguna Art Museum might have forever walked unknowingly over a hidden piece of its history. But as it happens, the recent rains flooded the basement floor, causing workers to remove the unsightly, mildewy carpet and make a discovery. They uncovered the original concrete floor, on which nearly 200 names of prominent local artists and art lovers were indelibly stamped in the 1930s.

A little-known fact: The so-called California Impressionist painters were not the only artists who helped turn Laguna Beach into an art colony. Several photographers also contributed to the scene--and inspired a loosely linked group of artistic "descendants" who continue to produce work of note. "Visions and Ecologies: Photography in Laguna Beach, 1918-1993" is the first of five Laguna Art Museum exhibitions this year that deal with the history of art and artists in Laguna Beach and environs.
