“From the Desert to the City and Back Again” is the title of Darlene Roker’s solo photography display.
It is paired with “Root and Branch,” a juried show featuring artworks by BAA members that have trees as the primary subject of paintings or using parts of trees — bark, wood, twigs, leaves — in mixed media or assemblage pieces.
A reception for both will be 6-9 p.m. Aug. 2 as part of Ventura’s monthly First Friday gallery open house.
Buenaventura Gallery at Bell Arts Factory, 432 N. Ventura Ave., is open 11 a.m.-4 p.m. Thursdays through Sundays. For more about the 65-year-old nonprofit cooperative and its programs, visit www.buenaventuragallery.org or call 805-648-1235 during gallery hours.
