February 1 – February 28th Reception & Live Auction February 23rd, 2 – 4 P.M.
Long-time Ojai Studio Artist, Valerie Freeman, is hosting a solo exhibit at the Ojai Art Center highlighting treasured pieces she’s created over the past decades of her career.
The exhibit opens February 1, 2019 with an accompanying silent auction through Feb. 23. Open to the public, a reception and Live Auction on February 23 from 2-4 p.m. will benefit several local non-profits organizations, including Ojai Land Conservancy, the Ojai Valley Community Hospital, Ojai Music Festival, Help of Ojai and Humane Society of Ventura County. All auction winners may select a non-profit for the profits to benefit.
The artwork includes nature-inspired paintings, sculptures and photographs. Freeman, who like many in the community experienced displacement during the Thomas Fire, hopes the exhibit will bring added support and unity to the place she calls home.
