Venture Gallery presents a show by local artist Elizabeth Ingebretsen entitled "Blooming in Place." We welcome you to come and view these moments of joy in an otherwise disturbing time. Venture Gallery is now open for in-store shopping Thursdays - Sundays, 10am-6pm.
During the Covid-19 pandemic, artist Elizabeth Ingebretsen has made it a priority to have vases of fresh flowers in her home. They are not elaborate arrangements from a florist, but whatever she could pick up as she quickly ducked in and out of the market. As temperatures rose with the onset of summer, her garden bloomed outdoors.
While global media stream reports on the untold suffering of many who do not have the luxury of sheltering-in-place, Elizabeth is thankful she can take refuge in creating. Her work documents this solitary time, as we each face some form of sacrifice and hardship during the pandemic.
Blooming in Place will be on exhibit through August 2020. Venture Gallery is located at 260 Alvarado Street in Downtown Old Monterey. Visit our website to shop online for work by our local artists.
