MC7C Monochromatic 7 Cities Created in the summer of 2006 in response to the lack of support for local artists by other publications and venues, MC7C was founded by k@t and Gabriel.

In the spirit of Ver Sacrum and the Association of Austrian Artists from the early 1800's, our goals are similar:

To promote artistic interests, especially the raising of artistic sensitivity in Virginia

Aim to acheive this by uniting local artists both in Virginia and abroad

By seeking fruitful contacts with leading artists

Promoting local art at exhibitions locally

Making use of the most significant artistic achievements of the SEVEN cities both to stimulate art in our own area and to educate the local public with regard to the general development of art


k@t Marsh is a Virginia Beach native who got her start in the local music scene at the age of 15 doing merch / flyers for Car 44.

MC7C. Get yours at Marsh. Get yours at'It has always been the purpose of art and indeed its very origin and most important purpose to express the aesthetic feelings of a minority of pure, noble and more hightly developed people. It expresses these feelings in enlightened compostitions, and as the slow, dull populace graduall follows them, it serves to educate them in the ways of truth and beauty.' Hermann Bahr
