Tour of J. Spanky Bunch Art Gallery

Josh grew up in Williamsburg, KY, in a community known as “Slabtown”. He received the nickname, “Spanky” while participating in Little League Baseball, due to his strong resemblance to the character on “The Little Rascals”, and the nickname stuck. Much, of Josh’s artwork, expresses a deep seeded sentimentality, for having grown up in small town, KY. Consistent themes in his artwork, concern his spirituality, his interest in music, and his passionate interpretation of Eastern KY living.

Over a thirty-two-year period, the Ventura family has managed to build their own house, develop a farm, raise three children, take care of Miguel’s parents and keep their business thriving.
