Blockbuster Sequels Continue to Invade Orange County
Earlier this year Laguna Art Museum presented a third installment of the OsCene, featuring a fresh collective of artists representing the arts in Orange County. This summer Grand Central Art Center, in Santa Ana, is revisiting a past exhibition and asked 100 artists, once again, to see Satan. More than a tribute to the ultimate villain, this time around, 100 Artists See Satan is organized as a fundraiser to raise money for the art center. Over 100 artists contributed artwork-all for sale-to the exhibition. Artists from the first 100 Artists See Satan were invited back as well as new heathens.
With so many artists, and so many interpretations it is hard to pick a favorite. However, there are some unforgettable highlights: Kii Arens’ Lucifork, which was the illustration for a recent Devo concert poster, Beau Roulette, Sonya Palencia, Gary Musgrave, and Dana Harvey’s limited edition, already sold out, Hell in a Handbag.
Only time will tell how successful a fundraiser about Satan will be; even one based on a popular exhibition. Thankfully, this exhibition/fundraiser capitalizes on one of GCAC’s strengths: bringing together crowd-pleasing artists for a fun time. Last Saturday’s preview was well attended with two more receptions scheduled: Saturday, July 3, 7:00-10:00 p.m. and Saturday, August 7, 7:00-10:00 p.m.
