VENTURA COUNTY — The Museum of Ventura County has launched its summer season with the exhibit “The Secret Paintings,” the works of local artist Michael Pearce, 6-8 p.m., June 2, at the Museum, 100 Main Street, Ventura.

For this exhibit, Pearce has selected 35 works of art, for which he took inspiration from Renaissance and Pre-Raphaelite masters. With The Secret Paintings, Pearce seeks to emulate their ambitiousness and scale, which is reflected in the centerpiece of the exhibition: a monumental four-part work of oil on canvas themed for the summer solstice.

The Secret Paintings will be on display at the Museum through August 6. The museum hosts Free First Sundays as well as Appreciation Weekends with free admission for featured groups. Visit for a full schedule of free admission days.
