2 Exciting Exhibitions

Here, two special shows to satisfy your creative soul.
This striking photo of John Wayne by John R. Hamilton is on display at Newport Beach Public Library.

1. On the Set With Duke
Rare images once lost to time are now on view through Sept. 5 at the Newport Beach Public Library. This collection of 15 prints by John R. Hamilton spans more than a decade of John Wayne’s life on the sets of some of his most iconic films.

2. Phil Dike: At the Edge of the Sea
It’s the first comprehensive exhibition in 40-plus years showcasing works by the California regionalist painter. More than 60 pieces created between the 1920s and ’80s—on loan from private and public collections throughout the state—are on display through Sept. 24 at Laguna Art Museum. Look closely, and you might see a sandy scene straight out of O.C.
