Mending the Divide statement by Ojai Studio Artist President Pamela Grau:
“We live in divided times politically, culturally and personally. Today we are at risk of being manipulated into separation by the information we consume, our social interactions, our places of worship. This exhibit asks Ojai Studio Artists to depict the divide and determine how it can be healed. As visual artists, their responses are metaphorical, textural, realistic and abstract. We invite you to ponder these artistic responses.”
