Gallery Closure Gives Way to New Ideas, New Exhibits and a New Energy
 
The Museum of Ventura County is preparing excitedly for the Grand Re-Opening of its galleries after being closed since September 1. A fundraising gala, “Splendors of the Museum” will be held on Saturday, January 7, followed by a community celebration—free and open to all— on Sunday, January 8 from noon to 5 pm. The community celebration begins with an opening ceremony at 12:30 pm, followed by free tours throughout the afternoon of the museum’s new galleries. Two new exhibits, “Masterworks of the Museum” and “Really Awful People, featuring the George Stuart Historical Figures” will debut.
Museum of Ventura County

Tiger Huang, a long-time artist of considerable standing in the Ventura arts community presented a very special and significant installation piece at the Museum of Ventura County in conjunction with its “I Want the Wide American Earth: An Asian Pacific American Story” this last weekend [18-19 June].   It was a beautiful installation, including a well-done, mesmerizing sound-scape.

Trouble is, and this is just the beginning of the trouble, Tiger’s name and the piece itself are not  mentioned anywhere in the Museum’s website or write-up of the exhibition. This is not to mention that though it was a major piece, and certainly time-consuming to produce and install, it was only up for 48 hours.  The piece is one of the most significant installation pieces any artist has ever done in Ventura, yet,  by the time Thursday rolls around, as far as the Museum goes, it might as well not have existed at all.

The Los Angeles County Museum of Art is hosting a not-to-miss exhibition through 11 September 2016 surveying the painting of one of the late 20th century’s best artists, Agnes Martin [1912-2004]. Martin is one of those painters you have to see live; no reproduction can mimic the experience of seeing the work in person.

-BREAKING NEWS-
CABRILLO MUSIC THEATRE TO PROCEED WITH THE 2016-2017 SEASON.
An energized community and a new business plan keeps “Broadway In Your Backyard” with three great musicals .
(Thousand Oaks, CA)  The Board of Directors of Cabrillo Music Theatre is very proud to announce that the company has secured donations from members of the community, which will allow it to continue production of the 2016-2017 season!
After recently announcing the suspension of production due to a lack of resources, these contributions will provide Cabrillo with the ability to retool the organization, to engage in a new focus and strategy, and to move into the future in a fiscally responsible way. The Board of Directors is committed to taking these opportunities- a reduced 2016-2017 schedule, a substantial infusion of resources, and an energized and passionate community - to design a Cabrillo Music Theatre for the future.
