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.
There has been lots of action this week at Bell Arts Factory as the artists are preparing for ArtWalk Ventura 2017. As everything is coming together, I think it is important to recognize someone vital to BAF and the Ventura arts community, Maribel Hernandez, the winner of the 2017 Artist of Distinction.
There is no one more deserving of this award. Bell Arts Factory has been honored to have Maribel as an artist/tenant since we first opened back in 2006. She started off in one of our smaller spaces, eventually landing in her current home of Studio 97. Through the years, Maribel has become a vital part of the community here, welcoming new tenants, inspiring new artists, and now serving as one of our community managers.
For ArtWalk Ventura 2017, make sure Bell Arts Factory is one of your primary destinations as you check out the local Ventura arts scene. We will be having special performances and exhibits, food trucks and more on both Saturday and Sunday, so schedule a stop both days. Located right in the heart of the Avenue, BAF is also walking distance to Stoneworks and Art City Studios, two other staple venues for the creation of art in West Ventura.
Thank you VC Reporter readers for selecting Bell Arts Factory as the best art gallery in Ventura County! On behalf of all of our artists, we would like to thank everyone who voted in support of what we do at BAF, from the after-school art classes, to our healing arts, to our community events, and of course the creative studio space.
We were also honored to share the recognition with two other organizations in the 805 arts community, the BuenaVentura Art Gallery and Studio Channel Islands. It is great to see the arts continue to get support by readers of local media.
