ANP Quarterly

ANP Quarterly is an arts magazine published by RVCA with a focus on a broader sense of art and community. The idea behind this endeavor is to make a magazine that will educate and inform openly and without the social or financial restrictions that plague many publications today and contribute more often than not to the "same old thing" again and again. Our goal is not to focus on current events or "who's hot" but rather to bring forward people and phenomena that deserve acknowledgement and coverage regardless of their place in time. For as long as we can make it happen, this magazine will be completely FREE and without advertising. We are beholden to nobody, save our own conscience, RVCA included. ANP Quarterly will be distributed around the world through galleries, bookstores, clothing and record shops.

Kevin Ancell | Nos Vemos En Venecia

On Thursday evening, October 1st RVCA was proud to present the opening reception for ANP Artist Kevin Ancell's highly anticipated, first-ever solo show: 'Nos Vemos En Venecia', curated by RVCA Founder PM Tenore. The corner of Main Street and San Juan Avenue in Venice, California was a fitting location for the gallery opening, and more importantly, a homecoming for Kevin.

"The idea for Ancell's exhibition was easy. Over the last 15 years with RVCA and the Artist Network Program I have been privileged to curate and be surrounded with so many amazing and talented artists. Ranging from museum shows to pop ups in New York, Austin, Miami, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Hong Kong. I realized that my dear friend, who I was around more often than not had never had a proper solo show. In that moment we both looked at each other and decided that needed to change... We were going to create a show for him in Venice. It was time for Kevin to come full circle and share his art in the place that began to inform his work. His artistic ability is just the tip of the iceberg, Kev is a true renaissance man." -- PM Tenore

'Nos Vemos En Venecia' will be on view at 1320 Main St Venice, CA until October 15th.

ANCELL DRAWS MOST OF HIS INSPIRATION FROM MANUEL RIBEIRA"”A SPANISH PAINTER WHO LIVED IN ITALY. HE ALSO DRAWS INSPIRATION FROM THE WORKS OF REMBRANDT, CARAVAGGIO AND THE OLD, FLEMISH MASTERS.

Ed Templeton | Common Side Effects

Ed Templeton’s current exhibition at the Huntington Beach Art Center is an expansive survey of the artist’s work from the last several years to present. The show features some of his most iconic pictures, paintings, sculptures and mixed media pieces spread throughout the space in Templeton’s dynamic installation style. Dominating the show are his Teenage Kissers, The Seconds Pass, Wires Crossed and Huntington Beach series, which is an ongoing look into his backyard’s beach culture and suburban sprawl.

At the opening on September 12th, visitors stood in line for the show duration to get Ed’s drawings and musings scrawled across all sorts of ephemera, while listening to live music from bands Freckles and Travesura. Those in attendance were an amazing cross section of art-world aficionados to newbie fans, and local skate groms to pro-skate elite. Deadbeat Club hosted a ‘zine fair and food was catered by Seabirds Kitchen. Beverages were provided by PBR and all made possible with support from RVCA.

Common Side Effects will be on view through November 7th and also includes works by photographers Deanna Templeton, Nolan Hall, Grant Hatfield, Devin Briggs and Soncho Williams.

Danny Fuller | Liquid Horizon

On August 11th Venus Over Los Angeles presented an Exhibition of new works by RVCA Advocate Danny Fuller titled "Liquid Horizon".

For the past 15 years Fuller has also pursued a passion for photography, documenting the seascapes he has encountered while travelling the globe. Relying on little aside from his medium format camera and the lunar calendar, Fuller often works at night, using the moonlight to capture the rich gradations of color and harmonious lines generated by the ocean vistas. Shot with an exposure time ranging from a few minutes up to an hour, Fuller’s images both convey and encapsulate the continuous motion of waves and sky, incorporating them into a single visual entity.

Fuller’s photography communicates his physical relationship with the water as well as his spiritual tie to the sport of surfing to which he has dedicated his life. Influenced by artists such as William Turner, Mark Rothko, and Hiroshi Sugimoto, he captures the horizon as both a participant and an observer.
