The Art Branch is an active group of volunteer members who strive to promote these early tenets set forth in the Articles of Incorporation,”The purpose of the Art Center is to advance the interest, influence and usefulness of the Arts in the community, to engage in the promotion from an a vocational standpoint of fine and applied arts.” Which means to us joyfully creating, exhibiting, networking and providing hands on experiences in the Arts.
The galleries are a source of pride for the Art Center, displaying a high quality of local work from Ojai, Santa Barbara and Ventura County artists as well as artists from as far away as New York. Many artists who have since gained national recognition have had their start at the Art Center.

May’s Featured Show
“It Really Is All About Me”
The May exhibit in our galleries is a crazy insight into artists. Titled “It’s Really All About Me” the show is all about the artist. There may be self-portraits but the theme will also include anything that reflects their interests. Should be very revealing……
The Beato Showcase will display mixed media of Olfet Agrama in Out of the Box. Reception for all artists is Sunday, May 12, 1-3 p.m.
The June Exhibit is our annual Photography Show. This year’s theme, Small is the New Big, is an open juried exhibit exploring the potential of the small photographic print. This competition is open to any subject matter, theme, or photographic style. Images may be framed singly, in multiples or stitched together and can be any size, but frames must be at least 11 inches or greater in width. Cash awards will be given for first, second and third place winners in the amount of $150, $100 and $75. Entry fees are $15 each or 3 for $40 with a maximum of 3 per artist. Bring work to the Art Center on Thursday, May 30, 4-7 p.m. or Friday, May 31, 8-10 a.m. For more info call Roger Conrad, 933-2828.
