Ventura First Fridays
Join us on the first Friday of every month to discover Ventura’s art scene. There are 13 Venues to visit and enjoy the vibrant art scene of Ventura.
The goal of First Fridays Ventura is to sustain a thriving art community in California. Each month, visual fine art spaces in downtown and midtown Ventura offer a variety of special entertainment to compliment the collectible artworks on display. Demonstrations, lectures, music, and performance provide an opportunity for everyone to share in this unique Ventura cultural experience.

Series – Homosapiens, the interior of the human bodies is imprinted with fragmented narratives. There will be an Opening Reception Friday April 3rd, from 6-9pm, and the exhibition will run from April 3rd – 26th. These tales are part of a fictionalized past-work of the person who is actually depicted. The tattoo-like markings, enhanced with powdered pigments, earth and crushed glass, speak of the complexity of the inner workings of contemporary human beings. Simultaneously the figures are linked to antiquity through their hieratic stance.
