“Turning Corners” now open at Ojai Valley Museum


A dazzling exhibition of new work by artists across the Ojai Valley is now showing at the Ojai Valley Museum. It’s a wonderful way to preview work from each artist who will be opening their studios in October for the annual fall tour.


The show includes paintings, sculptures, fiber arts, collage, jewelry, glass, prints, mixed media pieces and all manner of artworks made by members of the Ojai Studio Artists (OSA), the community-based nonprofit that has been celebrating Ojai arts and offering scholarships to local students for 38 years. This year’s show, “Turning Corners,” includes works inspired by the theme of “a new beginning, a new direction, a new path in life.”



The show runs through October 9 and features work by artists included in the OSA studio tour, the three-day, self-guided art extravaganza that features more than 70 open studios all over the valley, from secluded canyons near Lake Casitas to back yard wonderlands right in town. This exhibit offers a one-stop preview of works by all participating artists.

Artists' Talks

Three artists will be speaking about their craft at the Ojai Valley Museum, Saturday, September 23 at 11 am for the last of this year’s Artist Talks. During the one-hour event, you’ll hear from OSA three members: painter Uta Culmann-Ritke, ceramaist Emily Brown, and painter Karen K Lewis are the featured artists.

Consider donating to the Ojai Studio Artists to keep the annual tour FREE, to support our scholarship program, and to promote the arts in Ojai, CA.

Ojai Studio Artists is a nonprofit community educational organization that invites art lovers and collectors into the studios of Ojai’s many fine artists several times a year in open studio tours.  OSA promotes art awareness, preparing the next generation of artists, and celebrating the importance of the arts within the region. To date, OSA has given more than $200,000 in art scholarships. It also purchases art books for local libraries, partners with schools in teaching classes and mentoring students, and supports public art projects and other community programs.

Julie Grist: Summer Paintings
