Day One of ArtWalk Ventura 2017 was the perfect kick off for weekend long event. Birds, and praises, were flying from Maribel Hernandez’s Desde Mi Juala Abierta exhibit in the Tool Room Gallery. Our featured artist, Scott Gordon, had quite the retrospective in his pop-up gallery in Studio 35. The community marketplace allowed various guest vendors and artists to a chance to exhibit alongside all of Bell Arts Factory’s 30-plus artists. And the Cubano Sandwich from the So Cal Comfort Food Truck was definitely a tribute to the culinary arts.
Bell Arts Factory would like to extend a warm thank you to a few people and groups who truly helped make yesterday so special.
Harmony Project for their stage and busker performances- Game Of Thrones fans- did you catch the theme song?
Our volunteers Tiara and Rosa from Buena High School who helped teach the youth art class, staff our table at the end of the day, and run our Instagram.
Last, and certainly not least, Danza Azteca who began our event with dance and prayer, truly starting ArtWalk Ventura on the Avenue in the proper way. We are blessed.
We are back at it again today from 12-5. All exhibits will be open, and we’ll have the So Food Truck in our parking lot. All Bell Arts Factory exhibits are free. For a full rundown on the happening and exhibits, click here.
