A front porch view of the area’s history
Story by Bill Warner
Visitors to the Porch Gallery will find some of the most contemporary art Ojai has to offer. They will also discover one of the town’s most laid-back atmospheres.
The incisive quality of Porch Gallery art is perhaps best exemplified by its recent Water Works II show, which featured 70 works by 54 artists devoting their creative energies to the topics of water resources and drought. As for the easygoing ambiance of the gallery, it is probably best appreciated on Sunday mornings, when passersby are welcome to step up and enjoy a cup of coffee while relaxing in any of the numerous chairs on The Porch’s actual front porch.
