Three area women will present widely diverse painting styles and subjects in an exhibition Aug. 5-Oct. 1 in Buenaventura Art Association’s Studio 99 at Bell Arts Factory, 432 N. Ventura Ave.

They are Bonnie Quan of Ojai, with “Tiny Paintings: A Mini-retrospective”; Tamiko Jordan of Ventura, who titled her show “Ebb and Flow”; and Michelle Nosco of Ventura, who chose the theme, “Portals: Sacred Sites and the Circle of Life.”

An opening-night reception for their joint show will be 6-9 p.m. Aug. 5, in conjunction with Ventura’s First Friday gallery crawl. A second First Friday reception will be held the same hours on Sept. 2. Studio 99’s regular hours are noon-4 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays.

The grassroots Ventura arts group, founded in 1954, also has an outlet at Harbor Village Gallery & Gifts at Ventura Harbor, and artwork displays at SpiceTopia and Very Ventura. BAA directors, staff and volunteers are seeking additional business partnerships to expand exhibit space and artist exposure.
