Buenaventura Art Association (BAA) is a foundational arts organization in Ventura – a 67-year-old, nonprofit institution devoted to connecting artists with each other, the community with artists, and learning and growing as artists ourselves.

Exhibit Opportunities: We offer a year-round schedule of solo and group shows, and open competitions. BAA currently offers opportunities to exhibit in our owned and operated galleries, Harbor Village Gallery & Gifts and Studio 99 @ The Bell Arts Factory, and two partner retailers, SpiceTopia and Very Ventura Gift Shop & Gallery, in downtown Ventura.Artist Support: Our goal is to support our members professionally, artistically, and socially via regular exhibits, talks, demos, and workshops.Promotion & Sales: BAA actively promotes its exhibits and programs in the community. All artist members pay a 30% commission on sales at BAA galleries and venues. Members also receive a 10% discount on purchases in our owned and operated galleries.
Community: Historically, BAA has played a major role in establishing Ventura’s Downtown Cultural District and contributing to the formulation of the city’s Cultural Plan. Our record of contribution to the community includes sponsoring several Art in the Park programs, city-wide festivals, and community events like First Fridays Gallery Crawl and annual Ventura ArtWalks. In the Harbor, member artists designed and painted a mural, contributed a public art sculpture, and even painted individual designs on the trash cans. 
Our members contribute hundreds of volunteer hours each year to maintain our exhibits and our services. The 9 volunteer directors on our board are a diverse group who lend their business world talents and expertise as well as their artistic talents. 
BAA is a volunteer-powered organization that depends on the talent and support of members like you to sustain our programs!
