Now - February 7th – Ojai Artist in the Lobby – Gail Light
A California native, Gail Light has made Ojai her home for the last thirty years.
Horses and art are her passion. She divides her time between painting and being an avid student of classical riding and horsemanship.
She received a degree in Art at University of California Santa Barbara. Her work has been in juried shows at the Ojai Valley Art Museum, Santa Paula Museum of Art and annual shows of the Santa Paula Society of the Arts.
As an artist she is drawn to the world of nature, and to expressing the connection that exists between all living things experiencing life on the earth.
In addition to this, she is inspired by the physical design, architecture and beauty of all creatures, whether in excited movement or quiet contemplation.
Gail Light currently has work at the Santa Paula Museum of Art's
show 'Art About Agriculture' (December 9th through February 9th).

Now - April 7th – Ojai Artist in the Lobby – Marilee Allen
I have been making art my entire life. I had the good fortune to enjoy art as part of the curriculum in my K-12 schooling in New Jersey. Upon graduation, I attended William Patterson University and earned a BA in Art Education. After teaching art for several years, I moved on to become a potter, plying my wares in the New York metropolitan area. After several years of self-employment, I migrated west to California. While raising my children in Ojai and Ventura, I continued to paint, craft and sew.
