Art and Artists

Film by Eric Minh Swenson. Music by My Dead Air.

BRETT RUBBICO GALLERY located in Newport Beach, California founded in 2009 by Brett Rubbico Principal Gallerist. The Gallery mission is to establish, educate, and support varying degrees of art collectors and museum institutions by means of consistently well organized and executed solo and group exhibitions, catalogues, and lectures.

BRETT RUBBICO GALLERY is recognized as the authoritative and educational gallery for contemporary art in Orange County with an emphasis on related diversity of work styles including reductive, minimal, non objective, abstract, geometric, hard edge, figurative, and landscape with strict adherence to a rigorous curatorial model and directing.

We primarily represent an exclusively well sought stable of influential established and emerging Orange County, Los Angeles, and surrounding Southern California and West Coast regional artists. We also diligently continue searching to discover new potential rising stars. We are interested in Pacific Standard Time era in Los Angeles more specifically during 1960-1980s inclusive of Light and Space, Finish Fetish, and West Coast Minimalism movements. Additionally we seek to build, maintain, and exhibit our stable with relatable and newly made current work.

Our programming is focused and directed toward ethereal, reductive, and purely essential painting, drawing, and sculpture with an emphasis on abstract minimal and moving toward values of monochrome work that is very well made. The Southern California life style, weather, and light strongly influence art made by regional artists that we think is very important and significantly worthy of support and exhibition regularly.

We are influential pioneers, leading a resurgence and developing a new movement as a result of dedicated like minded, intensely focused, and professionally career orientated people that remain true to their interest and aesthetic of the Southern California demographic and landscape.

We are progressively advancing in an important and significant direction representing some of the finest well sought artists and consistently mount and install world class museum quality exhibitions, leading to regular awards of well respected critical acclaim, reviews, articles, and accolades.

We offer well managed authoritative direction, education, and the opportunity to build and increase the value and aesthetic enhancement of private, corporate, and public collections.
