Progeny, an exhibit of visual art by children of WAV artists will open at the WAV Gallery on March 3, 2023. The show is curated by WAV resident artist Sarah Kalvin and will mark the thirteenth anniversary of the opening of the WAV in 2010. WAV is an innovative community that includes 55 live/work spaces for artists, writers, musicians and other mediums.
The First Friday opening will include numerous local vendors with their arts and crafts for sale in the gallery’s courtyard. There will be live music and food trucks to enhance the exhibit’s opening at 175 S. Ventura Avenue in the heart of Ventura’s art district.
“While once viewed as the controversial new addition to Ventura’s growing downtown cultural district, Venturans have come to eagerly anticipate the next display of WAV artists individualism,” noted Kalvin.
Progeny will focus specifically on visual art and includes works by both children of charter members as well as children of artists who have joined the community since its opening.
