For ArtWalk Ventura 2016,, expect this PODS® Gallery to be the launching point for all exhibiting artists at the WAV, one of Ventura's artist hubs. From this PODS Gallery, ArtWalk visitors can get familiar with the depth of the WAV's artist roster, as well as begin a tour of all open studios in the complex.
By providing affordable living and working space for over one hundred artists of every kind; painters, sculptors, dancers, poets, musicians, filmmakers as well as luxury condominiums for those who want to dwell in a vibrant environment, Working Artists Ventura is the vanguard of contemporary lifestyle.
In addition WAV artists bring in fresh art to Ventura monthly as members of First Fridays Ventura and maintain a thriving venue during the annual ArtWalk Ventura event which draws over 30,000 visitors each year to our lovely beachside sanctuary.
The mission of the Working Artists Ventura Artist Council is to share the joy of art with the widest possible audience in our community and around the globe and to provide the highest caliber of art exhibitions, art training, and art events in our programming.
We seek to enhance our position as one of the world’s finest art collectives through our vitality, innovations, and diversity, and through uncompromising commitment to artistic excellence. We will strive in all ways to transmit the spirit of art to our peers and to those that may visit, not only — not less, but greater than it was transmitted to us.
