Five portraits from The Face Of Ventura portrait series by Johanna Spinks (no credit is given) are on display at the Museum of Ventura County’s current exhibit of portraits. The Face Of Ventura featured 2-years of Johanna portraits in the Ventura Breeze showing a cross-section of Venturans. The Museum show displays painting and photographs following the history of portraiture from the early 1800s to today. A portrait created just for the show by Johanna is also on display. “Sitting Pretty:Portrait Photography from the Salon to the Selfie” will be at the Museum until Nov.29.
The portrait on the right is Howard Burroughs who just turned 102. His “Children’s Garden” at the Ventura County Museum has just opened so be sure to visit it also while there. He has given major financial support to many Ventura venues including the Museum.
