Best Art Gallery Orange County 2012 - Magoski Arts Colony
Cooperation between galleries is almost unheard of. In a crap economy, that other white-walled fucker is competition, its grubby little fingers picking your pocket of limited arts dollars. Magoski Arts Colony provides a refreshing exception to that rule. The vast warehouse space has Violet Hour, Hibbleton, Bookmachine, Pas, Coco Gallery, and a handful of individual artists and collectives sharing space, with all footing the bill. The art exhibited comes from curators, owners and operators devoted to different disciplines, with a variety of aesthetics represented. Best of all? Every time we've been there, affordable art is on sale, further endearing it to the hearts of those of us who don't drive limos.
