Natural State Exhibit at the Museum of Ventura County
Art exhibit will showcase natural beauty of Southern California.
The Museum of Ventura County will be opening a new exhibit, Natural
State, May 18, featuring the work of the Museum’s first artist-in- residence Ryan Carr. Using
large scale paintings and drawings, the focus of Carr’s work is the invasive species of plants
along the Ventura River, the Channel Islands and other areas of Ventura County. Carr will also
be incorporating letter press printing techniques he learned while interning with Norman
Clayton, who is considered one of the finest living printers on the West Coast. Unique wallpaper
created by the artist, following the transition of Charles Burchfield, will be installed, as well as a
floral installation that speaks to Carr’s work and adds depth to the exhibit.
Located at 100 Main Street, Ventura, Natural State will be on display at the Museum from May
18 to August 12. For more information visit venturamuseum.org or call 805-653- 0323.
