Painting by Patty Van Dyke
Downtown Ojai is staying open late for the monthly Third Friday event Feb. 15 from 5:30 to 7:30 pm. Ojai Valley Artists Gallery will be featuring the work of ceramicist Margo Eidson, jeweler Mary Balmer and painter Patty Van Dyke.
Balmer’s work features handmade bronze, beadwork and enamel components to highlight their texture, color and nature. Her work covers the spectrum from delicate to pieces that make a casual handcrafted statement.
Eidson’s pottery is also casual with a kick, whether featuring hand-drawn equines racing across a field or subtle earth patterns with muted colors. All her pieces will make any home a little more personal.
Van Dyke’s work is full of colorful imagery and often makes one smile, just like its creator. She works primarily with watercolor on canvas but has been know to create beautiful wearable art as well with scarves featuring her images on canvas. She also will incorporate mixed media and ink if the spirit moves her.
