Interview: “Somos Locos” on Tour with California Locos at the Manhattan Beach Art Center

Try to describe the California Locos -consisting of Dave Tourjé, John Van Hamersveld, Gary Wong, Chaz Bojòrquez and Norton Wisdom- and you realize you’re talking about SoCal itself. “The Locos” could translate into “The Free, “The Uninhibited,” or “The Ultra-Expressive.” You might conclude that the Locos are the quintessence of the original and pioneering California spirit.

Night and Day: The 96 Hour Spectrum of Miami Art Fairs!

It’s hard to focus on the art fairs of Miami without being distracted by the art of the city itself! I was a first-time visitor to Florida, and immediately absorbed by the aqua gel waters, waving feathery palms and coral-specked sands.
