The Ojai Art Center (OAC) has eight branches -- each offering their featured performances and events -- and hosts a series of classes and special events such as Art in the Park and Jammin' at the AC. Our mission, since we opened our doors in 1939, has been to support and advance the interest of the arts within our community. Please feel free to come down and enjoy all we have to offer the valley. We encourage you to consider becoming a member which will bring you the satisfaction of supporting the arts on a local level as well as providing you discounts on theatre productions, discounts on activity fees, art purchases, events and our monthly newsletter.
Sunday, November 23, at 2 p.m. Three extraordinary musicians: violinist Yue Deng, cellist Virginia Kron, and pianist Kacey Link--all well known to the Ojai audience--join forces to perform beloved classics of the duo and trio repertoire. Their impeccable program includes the "Spring" Sonata No. 5 for Piano and Violin by Beethoven, Duo for Violin and Cello by Kodály, and Trio in B Major by Brahms. Tickets: $10 general admission at the door, $8 for Art Center members and students. Further information call 805-640-8327.
Michael Rohde 11/1 - 12/4
The Art Branch presents Michael Rohde has been a hand weaver for forty years, initially weaving rugs and later tapestries. All of his work uses hand dyed yarn,that he mixes for each specific weaving. Most of his designs are highly geometric but recent work bridges the gap
between geometry and implied images of faces. His work has been collected by several museums including the Musuem of Ventura County, the Mingei Museum of San Diego and the Art Institute of Chicago. Much of his artwork may be seen on his web site.
Evelyn Frament, pastel artist, will display a strong collection of her impressions of Ojai in the Signature Gallery. Norman Kirk will be featured in the Beato Showcase.
Reception for all artists is Sunday, November 2, 1-3 p.m.
