    Torrey Cook // AR4T talks about OC Artists Republic.

    For as long as I can remember, from childhood to adulthood, art has been the one place to escape the burdens of modern life – a sanctuary from the constant uphill push of communication, competition, forward motion –  a relief from an omnipresent pressure of expectations external and within.

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 underground arts community in Orange County and the small independent galleries providing the fuel. We are continually working to update the site, so please check back on the regular and thanks for being a part. –OCAR
