Venture Gallery presents the work of local painter Cheryl Kampe, our featured artist for September, with an exhibit entitled Unintended Icons.
Normally, Cheryl paints landscapes and still life in oil or watercolors. But during the Covid lockdown she decided to paint portraits to honor voices for change, people who stood out in the struggle for human rights and who became unintended icons. The exhibit features portraits of John Lewis, Ruth Bader Ginsberg, Cesar Chavez, George Floyd, Emma Gonzales, and Amanda Gorman.
Venture Gallery is now open daily, 10am-6pm. Cheryl Kampe's artwork will be featured through September 2021. Venture Gallery is located at 260 Alvarado Street in Downtown Old Monterey. Visit our website to shop online for work by our local artists.
