Art, Music For A Warm SoCal Night

October 3, 2014

Tonight’s your last chance to get your gauvin on and catch the “Doors to Dimensions” show at Bell Arts Factory 432 N. Ventura Ave., Ventura, CA 93001. The Doors are scattered about the venue, and many of them are available for purchase. Not sure when they are going down but you can see the show until  9 or 10pm during First Friday Open Studios and Galleries.

Most of gauvin’s work is back to the owners but the garage door he painted for me (pictured) was at Bell Arts on Thursday out in the yard by MB Universe when I stopped by to check on my piece and to put poems inside the VW van for people to take. My door is for sale also; like most, it’s $350.

My door is near the Tool Room Gallery and while you’re there be sure to check out Lynne Okun’s piece of Lucy Hicks; gauvin always wanted to do a living history performance of her.

According to Dr Frank P. Barajas, “Work and Leisure in La Colonia: Class, Generation, and Interethnic Alliances among Mexicanos in Oxnard, California, 189-1945,” Ph.D. diss., Claremont Graduate University, 2001, Lucy Hicks Anderson lived as a woman in Oxnard, California, from 1920 until 1945, when it was discovered that she was biologically male. Today she might be described as a transgendered person, but that term did not exist during her lifetime. Although she did not refer to herself as a transgendered person, she insisted publicly that a person could appear to be of one sex but actually belong to the other.

The money from the sale of the doors benefits kids arts programs through the donation of art supplies and a fundraiser for the gauvin Memorial Scholarship Fund, providing grants for young artists, poets and performers.

Also tonight at Bell Arts check out “Cuento Cups: Because Our Stories Matter” an exhibit in response to Chipotle Mexican Grill’s Cultivating Thought Author Series in the Museum of Ventura County’s Tool Room Gallery.

This weekend is also the Ojai World Music festival in Libbey Bowl. Tonight features the music in the video of the African sounds of Bassekou Kouyate and his ensemble Tomorrow and tonight hear  Jayme Stone, two time Juno award winning banjoist, and his quintet; Saturday Jayme will perform with Nevenka singing songs of Eastern Europe. Oragnaizers say:

Two fabulous nights of music that will transport you to another time, another place. Music that is ancient, as well as bold and contemporary. A food truck offering delicious foods will be available both nights to encourage picnicking in the bowl.”
