The art-conscious town of Ventura, CA is hosting PhotoVentura 2007 showcasing fine art photography, photo-art and multimedia projects from October 20 to November 3.
Itâ€™s a two-week event that brings together all the photographers and artists in the Ventura area, coordinating their events, slide-shows, workshops and exhibits for this cultural occasion.
Ventura buzzes with art; itâ€™s a town with an art gallery in every block and a thriving art scene.
â€œWith the Brooks Institute of Photography campuses in Santa Barbara and Ventura, and the fabulous photo program at Ventura College, art photography is everywhere,â€ observes longtime Ventura professional photographer Stephen Schafer. Heâ€™s the guy who cooked up this idea of a photo-themed event.
The premier event for PhotoVentura 2007 will be the Gallery Crawl of coordinated receptions on Saturday, October 20 from about 1:00 to 8:00 p.m. Participating artists will have receptions with maps and schedules created to bring patrons, and photography lovers out for the evening.
