Elizabeth Khorey Featured In LGOCA!


Elizabeth Khorey
We are so excited to announce that OC Designer Source artist Elizabeth Khorey has been selected to hang her work in The Laguna Gallery of Contemporary Art (LGOCA) in Laguna Beach, CA. Her gorgeous encaustic fine artwork is a perfect fit for the prestigious gallery that showcases some of the best photographers, sculptors, and fine artists in California.

More than 300 artists were interviewed to fill the gallery space, and out of all of them they selected Elizabeth Khorey. It’s no surprise to us, as her art is a breath of fresh air to the art scene and at the same time easily accessible to a wide audience. Layers of beeswax, plasters, and organic embedded objects come together with Elizabeth’s knowledge of faux finish, old world Venetian plaster and encaustic techniques to create works that are truly one of a kind. Her work will begin showing on June 1st.

Laguna Gallery of Contemporary Art
Located in downtown Laguna Beach at the corner of Legion and PCH, the exclusive LGOCA’s vision is to bring both mid-career and internationally recognized contemporary artists to Laguna Beach. They represent just 24 artists with 2 guest artists each month. You can take a look at their website to learn more about them.

If you’re as excited as we are to check out her work in the gallery setting, the best time to see it is the First Thursdays Art Walk in downtown Laguna Beach. Just like the title suggests, there is an Art Walk on the first Thursday of every month. Since her work will begin showing on June 1st, the Art Walk on June 6th will be an ideal time to appreciate her work as well as enjoy many other talented artists along the way. Take a stroll through downtown Laguna at night with the streetlamps sparkling and the galleries all lit up and beckoning. Many galleries serve free wine, vodka T’s, or sangria, as well as snacks like cheese or cookies to nibble on while you explore all of the incredible art that is available.

OC Designer Source is so pleased that we have been able to help Elizabeth get into a gallery of this caliber, as she is incredibly talented and her work really has a way of making interiors shine. With her background in interior design as well as art, it’s no surprise that she has such creative flair and vision. We consider ourselves lucky to be working with her and are so excited to be able to promote her in this way.

So what are you waiting for!? Be sure to mark the evening of June 6 on your calendar and make the LGOCA your first stop for the evening.
