This has been a full week already, with Art City artist “Manny” Juan Miguel Cisneros representing Art Citizens with not just one (as with most other official venues of the Ventura Artwalk) but two artworks, Dragon Stone (flagstone & wood) and Tornado (sandstone), selected by a juried panel into the Ventura Artwalk Collector’s Reception at the Museum of Ventura County on Wednesday night at 6 pm Oct 4th, 2017.
Then this weekend, for First Friday, Oct 6 and Ventura Artwalk weekend Oct 7 & 8th, Re-Birth: Ventura Artist Union Membership Show marks the first official collaboration between Art City and Ventura Artists Union.
Schedule of events at the Re-Birth exhibition opening:
Official Inauguration of the Art City Gallery on Sunday, Oct 8th
Cocktails at the Avant Garden from 4:30 to 5:30 pm
Art and good company from 5:30 to 8:00 pm
Music by Caminos Folkloricos.
Re-Birth: Ventura Artists Union Membership Show features a refined collection of artworks by new and old Ventura Artist Union members. Considering the organization’s 20-year history in conjunction with a heavy influx of new members, it’s an impressive, diverse collection revealing a regional art ecosystem rich in genres ranging from figurative to non-figurative, minimalist to Rococo, from gravitas to levity, and from socially engaged to art for art’s sake.
