SANTA ANA, Calif. - Laguna Beach artist Rob Gage will have a selection of his photographs from the "Ballerina Project" on exhibit June 12 through July 14, 2014, in the Thomas F. Riley Terminal as part of John Wayne Airport's Community Focus Space Program. Gage's work can be seen on the Departure (upper) Level near the security screening areas in Terminals A, B and C and on the Arrival (lower) Level adjacent to Baggage Carousels 1 and 4.

"My goal is to create work that has a different look from most of the imagery floating throughout the ballet world," said the photographer.

Gage is a native of Orange County. He developed an interest in photography at the age of 15 and has been working in the field ever since. He has traveled across the world photographing various projects. Over the last two years his projects have mainly focused on ballet. Gage's work is currently on display at the Festival of Arts in Laguna Beach.
