You are invited to THE EGAN, a new gallery space at the Magoski Arts Colony, on June 7th between 6 to 10 pm, when THE EGAN presents visual artist Ken Ruzic with his first Fullerton Art Walk solo exhibition “Sacred & Profane”.

Ken Ruzic has been painting for over 20 years, his work has been featured in dozens of magazines and he has over 100 domestic and international exhibits to his credit. His debut at the Fullerton Art Walk, however, was not until this month when he joined 99 other artists for LOVE. SEX. UNITY. RESPECT. with his standout contribution The Owl & The Pussy Cat, inspired by Edward Lear’s 1871 poem of the same name. Ken now follows this contribution with a monumental exhibit which among other things tackles a battle of fish, the end times, minor conspiracies and the temptation of a decent saint.

Ken is constantly at work in his Orange, CA studio painting, researching new topics, and completing dozens of studies and sketches in preparation for one of his epic works. Drawing from an abundance of curiosity, research, and a Midwestern upbringing, his subjects have ranged from Polynesian themes, fables, myths, and biblical stories all the way to the machinations of modern society. It is Ken’s drive to understand and communicate these ideals to the world that assure Mr. Ruzic several lifetimes of subjects to take on.

Art Walkers who come to The Egan on June 7th can look forward to an eclectic ride through the artistic mind of our first featured artist, THE MIGHTY KEN RUZIC!

(The Egan is named in honor of the local legend, art professor at Fullerton College and the man who got many of us first thinking about the power of art, Bob Egan. Bob passed away in 2008 but the friendships made in his class continue for many us 25 years later. Bob’s wife Beverly plans on attending)
