Buenaventura Art Association monthlong Collectors’ Auction and Exhibit

You could win “Sacred Spring, Delphi,” a painting by Gerd Koch.

Opportunities abound in October to put some local color in your home or office: Buenaventura Art Association is holding a monthlong Collectors’ Auction and Exhibit of works by notable area artists in its Ventura Avenue gallery.

Most pieces on display Oct. 1-30 will be offered in a silent auction, including large paintings by Phyllis Doyon and the late Mary Michel.

Attendees at preview receptions 6-8 p.m. Sept. 29 and 2-4 p.m. Sept. 30 (or both) will see all items in advance, before the general public and before the auction launches online.

Tickets, $10 per person, include automatic entry into raffle drawings for prints, restaurant certificates and other prizes to be held every half hour during the previews, plus free BAA Champagne flutes and music. The tickets are available online at buenaventuraartassociation.org and will be sold at the door.

Opening public reception for the show will be 5-8 p.m. Oct. 1, in conjunction with Ventura’s First Friday gallery crawl.

Another highlight of the October fundraiser will be selecting the winner of “Sacred

Spring, Delphi,” a painting by Gerd Koch. Raffle tickets are $50 each or

three for $100.

Hours at Buenaventura Art Association, in Studio 99 at Bell Arts Factory, 432 N. Ventura Ave., Ventura, are noon-4 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays.
