'Arsenal of Desire' is a group show exploring and expressing the rich passions that are the basis of the human experience\, and intrin sic in the process of making art. The impulse to create is\, at root\, the desire to express oneself and the way we see the world. Through various mediums\, the Omnific Society's work uncorks the bottled emotional well\, exposing to the light their visions and inspirations\, sounds and textures .

These ar...tists\, emerging and established in their own rite s\, bring their unique sensibilities to this exhibition through a broad sp ectrum of mediums ranging from assemblage to oil painting\, poetry to phot ography\, music to photomontage\, jewelry to sculpture\, and a few odds an d ends in between. The diversity of styles and subject matter combine to f orm an exhibit that is truly unique\, yet unified in each artist's creativ ity and talent.

The collective’s first group exhibit\, held in Culver City in September 2009 was an overwhelming success\, with a packed house and over a dozen pieces sold in the course of one evening. With this 2nd show\, the Omnific Society expects to surpass the success of the firs t event\, with their one night only pop-up cash and carry show. All sales benefit the Omnific Society collectively and individually.
