Photo top left: Ventura Councilmember, Carl Morehouse, and wife and City Planning Director Janna Minsk, viewed art and got artists’ positive feedback on the WAV live/work experience. Morehouse is an arts and WAV advocate and enjoyed being toured through the studios by Sarah Kalvin.
Jillian Nye took the Docents of the Museum of Ventura County and other guests on a grand tour of studios open for love and business. Mitra Cline took charge of the WAV’s first art auction that received donations from both WAV artists and others in the Ventura community.
The Birbrower grandchildren are shown here at play with Cline’s photo board, as well as WAV’s Christopher Brown, Diane Ippel and Karen Harris at work and play. Many more participants worked and played at the WAV – too numerous to mention by name.
