The art world is getting back in the swing of things this fall as I just finished up my first official weekend on the Ojai Studio Artists Tour. It was three full days of people visiting our studios in the Ojai Valley area which was one of the very first places to start an artists studio tour about 35 years ago! Look for the second Saturday open studios that will be smaller in size in different neighborhoods of the Ojai Valley starting again next year. It’s a great opportunity to see where the artists work and catch a glimpse of new work that is happening in their studios. Look for me in the “West End” group.
Coming up soon is the 13th Annual inkspots of San Buenaventura Exhibition, “Rolling On.” We have 14 artists in total in the group with two new artists exhibiting with us this year. Our opening reception is Friday, November 5th from 5-8pm at 643 Project Space in Ventura. Come early to pick up your free raffle ticket to win our annual folio. The lucky winner will receive prints from nine artists, a value of $250. If you don’t win, you can still purchase your copy of the folio for that great price, a real bargain! We will have live music and refreshments in the courtyard with the fire pit going, always a great show not to be missed!
Coming up right after that is the Santa Barbara Printmakers Pop-Up Print Sale. For one weekend only, November 12-14, 2021. Come on down to the Community Arts Workshop located at 631 Garden Street in Santa Barbara. It’s perfect timing for Holiday Season shopping!
There will be an Opening Reception: Friday, November 12, from 5-7pm. Saturday, November 13th we will be open from 12-5pm and on Sunday, November 14th from 12-4pm. In addition to framed prints, I will also have a table where I will be selling unframed prints for a great price! I look forward to seeing you there!
I am excited to announce that I will be having my first solo exhibition at a wonderful gallery in Ridgway, Colorado called the 610 Arts Collective opening on August 1, 2019. The gallery will be open for First Friday, August 2nd from 5-9pm and the opening reception will be Sunday, August 4th from 6:10pm - 9pm. The show will be on-going until August 30th. For those in the area in August, the gallery is located at 610 Clinton Street, Ridgway, Colorado. For those looking for a great western trip, Ridgway is about 15 miles away from Telluride, and also adjoins Ouray, with Montrose not far away. If you make it to Ridgway, let me know as my husband and I would love to show you our new home that was featured last winter in Shelter Magazine. Hope to see you there!
In November, we look forward to the 12th Annual inkspots of San Buenaventura show at 643 Project Space in Ventura, CA. I am an original member of the inkspots but you can look forward to seeing work from several new members in our group. We will be having a FREE Raffle Drawing of our inkspot folio which gives you one print from all the inkspots. If you are not lucky that night, you can purchase a folio for a great price!
The opening reception will be the first Friday in November--November 1, 2019 from 5-8pm. We will also have gallery hours every Saturday in November from 1-4pm. Stop by and meet the printmakers and see the presses where all the action happens!
