The Museum of Ventura County features large-scale archival prints by Venice-based artist Rodger Klein entitled “Wet” in its contemporary art annex, the Tool Room Gallery, this month. An opening reception and chance to meet the artist will be held on Friday, April 7, from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm at the gallery at 432 N. Ventura Avenue in Ventura.
Venice artist Rodger Klein focuses on objective and non-objective underwater imagery in his work. For this show, Rod has been creating large archival prints from images shot in his custom designed studio pool.
Rodger (Rod) Klein has had an eclectic career as an artist, video editor, special effects designer, director, scuba instructor, dive guide, and highly published underwater photographer.
According to Klein, “Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep.”
