    KEFE : Kelly Tunstall & Ferris Plock // Artist Interview

REPUBLIC [ri-puhb-lik] : a state in which the supreme power rests in the body of citizens.

When talking about Orange County California, some might conjure the image of sparkling strip malls, plastic body parts, or a landscape of tract mansions filled with serene seascape beach scenes. As lovely as this picture by Bravo is… the OC is not all Housewives. Just south of the LA art scene lives an insanely talented group of artists, designers, musicians… AND a dedicated group of gallerists, collectors, and friends who support them. OC Artists Republic was created with one goal – to bring awareness to the badass arts community in Orange County. We are continually working to update the site, so please check back on the regular and thanks for being a part. – Torrey Cook, Artists Republic

The Magoski Arts Colony in Fullerton is an especially problematic venue to report on because the converted warehouse is simply filled to the brim with exciting, honest and experimental artwork and ideas that […]

Great Art Starts Here.

Once in awhile a show comes along where I think I know what to expect – a few smiles and hugs then a quick fifteen minute browse around the room… but then upon arrival find myself completely blown away spending hours going back and forth and back again, then leaving feeling thrilled and inspired. The […]
