Now - August 8th– Ojai Artist in the Lobby – Sally Carless

Sally Carless is a photographer, educator, and writer who has called Ojai home for over twenty-five years. Her current exhibit, A Year with the Eagles, is the culmination of a project  that began on her birthday in April of 2013 when she went to the lake and discovered two baby eagles! She immediately fell in love, and followed the chicks from when they were just over a week old until they left the nest and flew off to new adventures later that summer. Sally immersed herself, spending hundreds of hours observing, photographing, and  filming these amazing beings. She has continued to visit the eagle parents, and is now happily watching their latest chick discover the world. Sally is very excited to share her love of the eagles with the Ojai community.

Sally also creates Soul-Centered Portraits: intimate images that invite the viewer into a deeper experience of seeing and experiencing. She has a particular passion for animals, specializing in creating portraits that reveal the Being behind the eyes. In addition to creating fine art prints of raptors, big cats, and other wild animals, she also creates portraits of pets and their people.

For many years Sally was the main photographer for the Winnemem Wintu tribe. She had the privilege of photographing tribal elders, ceremonies, dances, and weddings.  Her photographs have supported tribal efforts to protect their sacred grounds and traditions.

More recently her photography has followed her other passions: nature and music. In 2011 Sally created a multimedia presentation called Portraits as Portals—a collection of intimate portraits of wild animals that offer a chance to see and experience the animal world in a new way. The presentation is a multi-sensory experience designed as an opportunity for reflection; to step out of linear time, go inward, and connect with that ancient way of knowing and being that is still very much a part of who we are today.

Sally’s  photography has been published or exhibited by places and organizations such as the U.S. Forest Service, the National Radio Project, the Sacred Land Film Project, the Barkley Pet Hotel & Day Spa, Global Village School, Paths of Learning magazine, and several Southern California publications and non-profit organizations such as the Ojai Raptor Center, the Ojai World Music Festival, and the Ojai Music Festival.  Her work was recently awarded First Place at the Ojai Center for the Arts "Reflect" photographic exhibit.

Sally Carless is also the Founding Director of Global Village School, an international K-12 homeschool diploma program that enables parents to provide their children with a progressive, nurturing, and enlivening education that prepares them to be wise and capable stewards of the planet and each other.

All of Sally’s work—as an educator, writer, and artist—has been fueled by the same desire: to educate and inspire, touch hearts, open minds, and to serve as a vehicle for creating a more peaceful and loving world.
