The natural world fascinates artist Anne K. Graca, both pictorially and materially, so her solo exhibition May 31-June 25 at the Buenaventura Gallery in downtown Ventura is naturally titled Spirit of the Earth.
“In exploring the theme of ‘spirit’ in relation to the natural world, I want to convey the living, spiritual aspect of the materials that come from the earth,” she said. “I want to cause people who view my art to consider the source of these materials, as well as the beauty and feelings they may evoke.”
Graca’s paintings and sculptures will be at Buenaventura Gallery, 700 E. Santa Clara St., which is open 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays.
