So we had a little relaunch reception for the OC Art Blog last Saturday night, it was a great time. Thank you to all my friends and OC art fans that came out to support. Special thanks to Memphis restaurant for hosting, David Michael Lee for everything, and Sarah, Suzanne, and Joy for the great art on the walls. If you're curious about the OC art scene be sure to visit the blog often. Here's a short video I made of the event. Enjoy:

The World Loved by Moonlight You must try, the voice said, to become colder. I understood at once. It is like the bodies of gods: cast in bronze, braced in stone. Only something heartless could bear the full weight. - Jane Hirshfield
So for those that don't know I'm responsible for another blog that gets much more traffic then this site. I started the OC Art Blog back in 2004 when I had my little gallery as a way of promoting the art space and the OC art scene. Over the past several years it had gained quite a following but then I went to grad school and it lost a bit of its MoJo. Well over the last several months I decided to get the blog back to its former glory. Luckily for me I have found several local writers/artists to help make it happen. This Saturday we are having a little relaunch party and art show that will feature the work of our writers Suzanne Walsh, Sarah Walsh and Joy Shannon (pics in order). Please come out support your local art scene and say hello. Details Below:
