Graduate student Sommer Sheffield in Ojai Discarted Arts Festival @ The Porch Gallery

The opening weekend is November 7-10, coinciding with the Ojai Film Festival‘s Focus Earth screenings.

The Ojai Art Festival is a city-wide event and juried art show held in conjunction with the Ojai Film Festival. The OAF seeks to bring community, art, and film together in a way that creates a sense of cooperation and kinship to all those who participate. Over 40 retail stores, restaurants, galleries, hotels and commercial spaces have agreed to exhibit artwork and hold events during the week of Nov. 7, 2013. Locals and visitors alike will have a unique exposure to art in everything they do, whether it be going to the bike shop, out to dinner, or even picking up their dry cleaning.
