My fellow Artists-in-Residence and I throw open our studio doors at Studio Channel Islands Art Center every first Saturday of every month so you can watch us work and see our latest work firsthand! Stop by anytime from 10-4 and then join us for the reception that follows each Open Studios event at our new Blackboard Gallery on the same campus (right next to my studio) from 4-6pm. Each month there is a new exhibit to see! We are located in Old Town Camarillo, California at 2222 Ventura Blvd. and have lots of free parking available. There are several very nice restaurants and winebars in Old Town, so make a day AND an evening out of it. Here is a handy map and dining guide to help you:

Solo Show at Coastal Communities Cancer Center in Ventura CA
2900 Loma Vista, Ventura, CA 93003
Nine of my paintings are on display in Ventura, CA, in an exhibit titled "Winds of Change", which I hope brings joy to the patients, staff and visitors of the cancer center. It can also be viewed from the street and is lit up nicely at night. Thank you to the city of Ventura, for being such art advocates and offering many opportunities to area artists to show their work in public.
