Ventnor Is Art was put together by a group of Ventnor artists who have decided to help promote art and art happenings in the area. The first informal meeting was held at Quality Sign Shop on Ventnor Ave. where people gathered to discuss what could be done to showcase the talent in Ventnor by providing them with space to work in, display their creations and socialize in as well. This meeting resulted in the first Chew on Art event offering food for thought from Ventnor artists and food for the stomach, too. The group is dedicated to supporting the many artists in Ventnor through networking and being a part of upcoming events for Local Artists Only.
Ventnor Is Art is all about art and artists in Ventnor who want to work together and support each other’s efforts. The current Ventnor Is Art volunteer committee includes:
- Film maker and photographer Rand Snyderman
- Malelani Cafe owner George Drakapolous
- The Wizzard at Wizzard For You Computers John O’Zemko
- President of 5MDM Mary Anne Hills
- Webmaster and Designer Mark Hills
An informal gathering of art enthusiasts has lead to the creation of Ventnor Is Art, a group dedicated to helping artists in Ventnor make the most out of their talent.
