The inaugural show at the Buenaventura Art Association’s new Ventura home will be a joint exhibition by a dozen BAA artists. The Collage Lab gets together monthly to experiment with the medium of collage, often throwing in mixed media and assemblage just for fun.
Opening Sept. 6 in Buenaventura Gallery at the Bell Arts Factory, 432 N. Ventura Ave., and run through Sept. 30. Collage Lab members will be on hand 6-9 p.m. Sept. 7 for a reception in conjunction with Ventura’s First Friday gallery crawl. A closing reception is planned 2-4 p.m. Sept. 30. The musical duo Ruby Skye will perform.
More than two dozen works will be on display, including a collaborative piece assembled from 12 squares by the individual artists. That piece will be raffled off as a fundraiser to benefit BAA in a drawing at the Sept. 30 reception.
