Taylor Dolan, Brennen Duffield, Shabana Kauser, Stefan Kellar, Hanna Newsom Doyle, Rhee Reamy, Carl Alan Smith

Face & Figure

This is an exhibition about the value of practice with live models in general, and with Art Ventures in particular. We find communion in the attention to one’s own idea of space, time, foreground, middle-ground, background, foreshortening, and defying the tricks of optical perception. We value bringing diverse sitters into the studio to challenge the routine as well.

We have included a young student with a well-practiced eye who has gone off to school, and also her mom who participates in AV portrait painting sessions. COVID19 has changed a lot for us but we expect to find our way back to live sessions with adjustments in 2020.


Kathleen Barta, Clarke Bueling, Neil Callander, Andrea Carrillo, Irene Corey, Deb Manley, Tim McSweeney, Shannon Norman, Joanna Reid, Denise Sagan, Adam Shaw, Lourdes Valverde.

Celebrate PRIDE

Beyond the Confines of My Mouth

Beyond the Confines of My Mouth celebrates individuals that have been oppressed or belittled in society on the basis of sex and gender by showcasing artworks that reflect the life of our community’s queer artists. This exhibition shares PRIDE narratives that reflect LGBTQIA+ experiences and identifiers, embraces the bravery of self-expression and authenticity demonstrated by the queer community, and aims to support their voice of activism to proclaim their visibility.
