“The curators of Porch Gallery have their fingers on the heart beat of this Valley. Pushing the edge of the Ojai art world with tasteful contemporary works, while remaining true to the spirit of this special place. By creating an inclusive, interactive atmosphere, that is rapidly growing community and connectivity, the Porch Gallery stands out as an amalgamation of refined aesthetics and the juicy human heart of art.“- akka b.
“A relaxed place where art and community meet. No visit to Ojai is complete without a visit to Porch Gallery. I especially love Sunday mornings on the porch, after a quick stop at the farmers’ market next door, listening to the piano, talking about art and life, watching the day unfold.” – Osceola Refetoff
The Porch Gallery Ojai is located in a historic building in downtown Ojai at 310 E. Matilija Street. Porch Girls Productions, owned by Heather Stobo and Lisa Casoni, officially took over management of the gallery in May of 2013.
Stobo earned her Masters in Photography from Cal Arts in 2000 and has a long history of gallery work, most notably Crown Point Press and Yerba Buena Gardens in San Francisco. Casoni has a marketing and communications background and was a co-creator of the Ojai Art Festival.
Porch Gallery represents emerging and established contemporary artists and produces artistic events throughout the Ojai Valley.
