OPENING PHOTOS // SPLENDOR DEVICE “THIS WILDE ABYSS”

The opening night of This Wilde Abyss took place last Saturday March 2nd, 2013. Laguna Beach’s Artists Republic 4 Tomorrow gallery is hosting the ladies of Splendor Device all female artist collective for the month of March. This marks the first time this group has shown in Laguna Beach and they did not disappoint – bringing another dynamic to the Laguna Beach contemporary art scene. The group of ladies that make up Splendor Device is over 70 members and growing – so a selection of 19 artists were asked to create new work to represent the group.

The roster of artists showing at Artists Republic 4 Tomorrow included Kelly Castillo, Amy Kaplan, Sara Haase, Jennie Cotterill, Allison Peairs, Kristi Bockrath, Elizabeth Caffey, Jennifer James, Jasmine Worth, Tyoni Aragon, M, Jel Ena, Amy Hood, Jennifer Hood, Valerie Lewis, Irene Garcia, Cory Benhatzel, Cody Raiza.  Splendor Device artist Michelle Orozco attend the opening doing live painting of living model Rachell Rellik.

With Splendor Device Kelly Castillo on the dj turntables and home made AR4T sangria – it was a warm fun night that felt like summertime.

The ladies will be back on Thursday March 7th for the Laguna Beach First Thursdays Art Walk – and they will be bringing more members to do a live art demonstration.
