LA Weekly Reviews “The Arnoldis: Slected works by Charles and Natalie Arnoldi”

Article by Shana Nys Dambrot. Charles and Natalie Arnoldi are a father and daughter, both painters, and that’s about all they have in common — artistically, anyway.

Lisa Schulte and Porch Gallery Featured in Art and Cake

“The sun was unreasonably hot the day folks gathered to attend the reception of Lisa Schulte’s “Article 16” and its guests were feeling it. Instead of inducing an irritable atmosphere, the oppressive heat had an interesting converse effect: it unified the art lovers who had convened at Porch Gallery Ojai, donning a wholesome, down-to-earth demeanor.
