Carrie Bezler and Eva Montealegre at Bell Arts Factory

Sunny, Pastels, by Carrie Bezler

A March 1-April 27 exhibition in Studio 99, Buenaventura Art Association’s gallery and headquarters at Bell Arts Factory in Ventura, will feature two artists’ viewpoints on the wonder—and increasing volatility—of humanity’s relationship to our world.

Eva Montealegre will present oil paintings on canvas.

Carrie Bezler, who signs her work REY, will display selected pastel drawings in “Returned to the Sea.”

Art lovers can meet and talk with the artists during First Friday open gallery receptions from 6-9 p.m. March 1 and April 5.
