Going Wild Opening Reception

August 27, 2022 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Museum of Ventura County
100 East Main Street
Ventura, CA 93001 United States

For novelist Melina Sempill Watts and artist Jeff Sojka, falling in love with a landscape means interconnecting the lives of the plants and animals that make it alive. Watts’ first novel Tree is an exploration of 229 years in the life of a California live oak from the point of view of … the tree. Sojka dove into the book and painted his vision of the tree’s reality, each painting honoring the aliveness and richness of California’s landscapes. This multimedia experiment, with the exhibit being available both on-site and virtually, will offer the audience the opportunity to expand their imagination, stepping into the life of a tree from multiple vantage points. Consider the world from the plants’ perspective: begin going wild.

Join us for the Going Wild Opening Reception on Saturday, August 27 from 3-5pm at the Museum of Ventura County. The show starts on Friday, August 26, 2022 and runs through October 2, 2022.
The exhibit is held in tandem with an event series.
