a show curated by Vonder Gray
Having just returned to WAV after 2 years in LA, I was wracking my brain to come up with a group show to present in the Gallery at WAV. I seem to be in 'super-manifester' mode ( I have a beautiful new space at WAV after all! ) because all these amazing women began showing me their new and exciting work and the idea for WOMEN IN ART (the 1st of many I hope) was born!

VAM Improvisational Painting at ArtWalk VENTURA -

  Erik ReeL’s VAM productions presents; VAM: Improvisational Abstract Painting at Artwalk VENTURA, a show curated by Erik ReeL and sponsored by EDGE and Society805.com.  A PODS  exhibition featuring emerging improvisational abstract painters working in Ventura . These exciting up and coming painters each have a distinctive approach and style, demonstrating the rich variety of personal expression available within abstract improvisational painting today.

                                                                                                                                                                  

 

Improvisational painting--any improvisational approach to any art--involves considerable personal and aesthetic risk. Risk accompanies each stroke, each mark, each decision, each act of the artist. This exhibition celebrates that risk-taking and the people who support it.  This includes the sponsors, two Ventura-based businesses involved with culture and the arts who take risks and support up and coming artists. Risk is so much a part of these businesses that risk-taking is part of their core mission.

Exhibition Review: Degas to Chagall

Degas-Close-Banner 15inch
