Welcome to Porch Gallery Ojai

A Group Exhibition Featuring Local Ojai Students

Oct. 1 through Oct. 31

Featuring works by:

Alden Delvecchio (The Thacher School), Elise Fedoroff (Nordhoff High School), Violet Freed (Besant Hill School), Colly Smith (The Thacher School) and Arley Weller Sakai (Oak Grove School).


Porch Gallery Directors Heather Stobo and Lisa Casoni conceived of the show as a way to teach beginning artists the complete process of editing, presenting and marketing their work. Each student was required to work with the gallery directors to compile a cohesive body of work, consistent in both theme and style.

According to Lisa Casoni, "Each student came recommended by teachers and peers. We knew that each had the ability to create interesting work, but we wanted to teach them the importance of taking the final steps of releasing and taking responsibility for the finished product."
