Herna D EDGE Shoot1 14It was a warm and lovely spring evening last Saturday night when The Working Artist Ventura presented two artists who have been instrumental in the recent West Side and Ventura Avenue arts revival, Erik ReeL and Nash Rightmer.  The opening had a steady flow of art lovers throughout the evening.

leadIt's time to cancel your flights and reservations, no longer will you need to travel thousands of miles to the ruins of Byzantium in Ravenna, Italy--now you can view the ancient art of Mosaics right here in the 805. Ravenna, a small city on the coast of Northern Italy, holds some of the world's finest preserved examples of the most intricate and difficult type of mosaics, which is aptly named the Ravenna Method. Larissa Strauss, an artist that is currently living and working at the WAV (Working Artists Ventura) project has made use of the Ravenna Method due to inspiration from a Scottish artist she met in Ravenna. He taught her this technique, and although difficult and very time consuming, she decided to use it for the purpose of a more painterly result for her pieces.

These thoughts and passions sprung from the mind of an Artist, Jessica Lindley, who currently lives and works as a photographer at the WAV.

Catlin Harvey Blair is a sculpture artist and jewelry designer who grew up right here in the 805 in Santa Barbara, California. Growing up in a positive family that raised her with the aesthetic of seeing beauty as it naturally exists in the world, she found her artistic niche early. She loves to put things found in nature in a different context to make them truly seen. “Some people look at a stick and just see a stick, but it’s more than just a stick, it’s this beautiful part of nature that fits in perfectly with its environment,“ says Catlin.
