Like sweets in a candy store window this show is sure to please the eye. Several professional sculptors reveal the work that delights, rejuvenates, and informs their creativity. They've invited artist-friends to share the space in this very family-friendly Art City show. Greeting visitors outside the gallery a huge confetti-colored textile piece from artist Kevin Carman - just one section of an installation destined for the desert later this year. Once inside the gallery soft, cotton-candy pinks with muted gray edges appear playfully along the walls in Andy Lewis' accessible, modern, and stylish works. A spiro-graphic swirl of color draws the visitor toward David Oliver's wall of dots, dashes and twists, many hung close to the floor for the enjoyment of little ones. So too, the majestic mini-orcas by Kenny Milton, painted in sculptural relief that start at the floor and swim their way up an interior column. Ephemeral paper butterflies incorporated into Katie Llana's works contrast with the tangible, durable qualities of her narrative paintings. There's more to see, so grab this opportunity to walk the children and grand-folks through an active artists' enclave just steps from an estuary, a bike trail, and eclectic downtown Ventura.
