What we're about

There are many artists living in Ventura County whose work never gets the respect and attention it likely deserves. Likewise there are many artists on the cusp of great creations that could benefit from being a part of a larger family of artists. This group is meant to connect artists in Ventura County and create opportunities for them to show their work. It can be really hard to find the correct venue for you work. As a musician, the places I typically perform are not always the best venue for actually listening to the words and stories I spent all that time creating. I know there are artists across all mediums who have the same problem. I think we can all come together and create our own art events that will showcase our work as well as allow all of us to make connects with other talented people living and working around us. Instead of waiting around for the perfect venue or the ideal art showcase, we should just create it. I will keep the page updated with local events I am involved with or am aware of, so whether you are an artist yourself or just a fan of local art, please come check them out!
