A Moment of Mentor, oil, Aliza Bejarano
Buenaventura Art Association will present “Connecting,” an exhibition of paintings by Aliza J. Bejarano, March 5-29 at its gallery in Studio 30 at Bell Arts Factory on Ventura Avenue.
The solo show will feature some small oil-on-canvas works by Bejarano, who joined Ventura’s creative community after earning a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in drawing and painting from California State University, Long Beach, in 2018.
Also at the gallery during those March dates will be a members’ choice show, in which BAA artists will showcase their styles and subject matters. A reception for both shows will take place 6-9 p.m. March 6 during Ventura’s monthly First Fridays gallery open house.
In addition, Bejarano teaches a weekly class on Figure Drawing at Bell Arts Factory that meets 6-8 p.m. Wednesdays. She produces her own art in Studio 79.
Examples of both her artwork and artistic process can be found online at alizabejarano.com and @aliza_b_ on Instagram.
