Buenaventura Art Association’s Harbor Village Gallery & Gifts has a new home in Ventura Harbor Village and invites the public to a Grand Opening and Celebration of the Arts from 10 a.m. – 9 p.m. on Saturday, August 20.
There will be artist demonstrations, Hawaiian dancers and the opportunity to meet the 14 artists featured in the gallery. Food and beverages will be provided to all who wish to participate in an event promoting the arts and have fun doing it.
The gala, daylong celebration will include a “treasure hunt” beginning at 10 a.m. at the Harbor Gallery & Gifts, with a raffle drawing at the gallery at 4 p.m. and prizes for the winning participants.
BAA, a 62 year old, non-profit artists’ cooperative, receives a portion of the sales at the Harbor Gallery & Gifts for use in providing scholarships for local college students. BAA also offers free art classes to young people for their education and enjoyment.
