The smells of sea air and paint thinner mix at the San Pedro studios where a working-class arts scene has grown into its own over the past 20 years. Perched on a seaside bluff at the southern edge of Los Angeles, the Angels Gate Cultural Center is home to artists who "are not pretending to be anyone else," said Robin Hinchliffe, the center's director. The local scene, she said, is "never going to be Laguna Beach or the Westside. That precious mentality just doesn't exist in San Pedro."

San Pedro is a small place surrounded by very big things--the hills of Palos Verdes, the Los Angeles Harbor, the Vincent Thomas Bridge, the Pacific Ocean. And that may account for its reputation.

By 6:15 a.m. on a recent Friday, Canetti's Seafood Grotto in San Pedro was packed with men whose hands show their work history as much as any resume. Old World San Pedro gathers at Canetti's, as always, by groups. At one table, the village gossips sit; at another, city employees. Once a month, the firefighters stop by. But most of the action takes place at the center, where a long table is reserved for the fishermen. It's easy to spot the fishermen.
