Focus on the Masters presents Where Art Lives, a self-guided tour of Ventura homes where art is collected, displayed and loved on May 21-22, 11:00 to 4:00. The tour includes 10 private homes and one law office. The ticket price is $30 for Focus on the Masters members and $35 for the general public. To encourage younger arts enthusiasts, a special pricing scale called “Pay Your Age” has been established.
Focus on the Masters believes anyone can be a collector. Tour organizer, FOTM volunteer Mary Galbraith, feels that passion should be the driving force in collecting. “Owning an original work, especially when it has been created by someone known to the collector, is especially thrilling. Our appreciation of The Cellist by the late Seco is enhanced by our friendship with that wonderful artist.”
The tour will be of homes in the City of Ventura. “Art lives everywhere – in a tract home, a condo, a seaside home or an office,” says Aimee French, whose home is one on the tour.
