Yes, that the reminder as well as a variety of hand sanitizers at the annual Sawdust Art Festival where changes have been made to accommodate current health concerns. The Laguna Beach art event is now a social distanced, outdoor market place open on weekends only featuring a limited number of artists on a rotating schedule each weekend due to the pandemic. However, we can meet and shop all of the more than 100 currently participating artist on the sawdustfestival.org website, among them glass blower Jason McQuaid.
