Red Brick Gallery is a Family Owned Gallery, opened in December 2006 by Jen and Phyllis. Over the years we have represented over 200 artists, featuring emerging and mid-career artists who have not yet acquired mainstream exposure. We strive to create an enjoyable art experience that is stimulating and unique; where the public can appreciate and purchase artworks from a variety of unique artists.
Beyond showcasing artists Red Brick also features a variety of creative classes for all levels of artists and ages. Each week you can experience a new creative teacher and style with our classes in a variety of painting techniques, mosaics, pastels, photography and Photoshop. We offer a variety of classes from Private Individual Instruction to traditional classes of 3-8 people and even Painting Parties of 15-35 people. We invite creative people of any level to join us in a fun new creative art class.
Each year we partner with several local non-profit creating awareness for the organization, as well as raise money to help them flourish. Some of the organizations we are most excited about partnering with are the Southern California Golden Retriever Rescue, Independent Lab Rescue, SPAN, FoodShare, Ventura Education Partnership among others.
In 2011 we also launched Paint Ventura a downtown Ventura Plein Air Event featuring a weekend filled with artists creating, selling and teaching along the sidewalks and in the parks. Over 100 artists and several thousand spectators participated in Spring Paint Ventura, we hope you can join us the last weekend of April for our next festival www.PaintVentura.com.
Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep. ~Scott Adams
