2021 is a new beginning for the Ojai Studio Artists
by Veronica Johnson
2020 was a challenging time for the Ojai Studio Artists. The annual tour was cancelled for the first time since 1984. Planned exhibitions of many individual artists, art fairs, artist talks, and individual endeavors were cancelled as well. However, 2021 may be a new beginning as the Ojai Studio Artists venture into unknown territory.
Second Saturday tours will resume this coming spring. All of the artists who participate will adhere to strict COVID-19 guidelines, making it a safe experience for all. Planning is underway for the October Studio Artists tour, from October 9th to the 11th. Should issues with COVID change the Ojai Studio Artists plans, they will let the public know.
The Ojai Studio Artists have also been working on a Panel Project fundraiser. Their artists have created various types of work on an 8×10 panel. This project has been a source of support for their scholarship fund. To see which panels are still available, visit their website at ojaistudioartists.org.
Hi Everybody, greetings from the Ojai Storytelling Festival. Hope this finds you healthy and strong. Maybe like me, you find yourself starving for stories. I have the perfect antidote to provide a positive jolt in these challenging times–An online concert with Bill Harley, Grammy winning musician and storyteller and one of my favorite tellers. Not only will you have a highly entertaining experience, but Bill has graciously offered to donate 20% of the ticket sales to the Ojai Storytelling Festival. A definite win-win for you and for us. Here are the details:
You can purchase tickets for the the whole series (4 concerts) or as many as you wish. The next show is Feb. 12 and it is geared for adults. The other 3 are designed for famlies. You can view any of the ones you purchase until April 12 so if you are unable to view one on the specific date of the show, you can catch the missed episode at your convenience.
