One gallery, three unique visions
Three Buenaventura Art Association members dedicated to sharing their perceptual insights will present recent artworks Aug. 1-Sept. 2 in concurrent solo exhibitions at the Buenaventura Gallery in downtown Ventura.
Mark Hafeman’s “Magic Garden” will be on the main gallery’s red walls, while Fredda Leiter’s “Birds, Beasts, Figures, Sky” and Kimberly-Ann Talbert’s “The World Through My Eyes” will fill the Clophine Dooley Gallery. The artists plan to attend an opening reception 5-7 p.m. Aug. 5.
Hafeman, an Oxnard painter whose mother and grandmother also were artists, said he will show about two dozen pieces, both watercolors and oils with acrylic underpainting.
Leiter plans to have about 18 watercolors on paper in her show. She lives in Ventura, has been painting about nine years.
Talbert is a lifelong artist who lives in Los Angeles and will be showing digital photographs and handmade jewelry, perhaps 30 pieces.
An exhibition by association members will fill the remainder of the main gallery, along with a hallway display by the last show’s honorable mention winners Louisa Wallace Jacobs and Doug Fossati.
Buenaventura Gallery, 700 E. Santa Clara St., is open 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Tuesdays through Sundays. For more information, visit BAA’s website, www.buenaventuragallery.org, or call 648-1235 during gallery hours.
