VITA ART CENTER March 1-31. “Without You I am Gone, Face of a Revolution,” works by Skye Gwilliam. New York City fine arts appraiser, Elizabeth Stewart said of the artist, “Skye is a master of the ‘one gesture.’  He doesn’t lift his brush once he lays it down on the white surface. His lines are one complete movement in chronological time and in “signifier.” The end result hits hard ; as hard as the shapes of his line, creating a calligraphy of a new urbanstruct language which had its birth in the immediacy of creating guerilla art for the streets.” Reception March 1, 6-9 p.m. Hours: Monday through Friday, 10 a.m.-5 p.m.; weekends by appointment. Bell Arts Factory, Studio 30, 432 N. Ventura Ave., Ventura. 644-9214, www.vitaartcenter.com.
