“Condition Report: The State of OSA 2015” exhibition at Ojai Valley Museum

“Condition Report: The State of OSA 2015” is the theme of the thirteenth annual exhibition at the Ojai Valley Museum, running from April 18 to July 5. The show opens with a reception on Saturday, April 18, from 5-7 pm, with the public warmly invited.

As to the title of this year’s show, "Condition Report" is the name given to the document completed by museum staff upon receipt of an artwork noting whether the piece is dated, signed, showing age or damage, and the like.

The upcoming OSA show aims to capture something of its own “Condition Report” with more than thirty years history, sixty current artists, and members who have come and gone, including the eight exciting new members just juried in this year. The show will demonstrate that an important aspect of OSA’s condition is “change:” it remains forward-looking. Thus, the show will feature everyone’s newest work, previously not shown regionally, and potentially more experimental than usual.

Weekly "Art Talks" from 11 to noon Saturday will feature three different artists each week talking about their work.

The Ojai Valley Museum is located at 130 West Ojai Avenue, Ojai, CA 93023. Hours are Tuesday-Saturday, 10 a.m.-4 p.m., Sunday, 12 noon -4 p.m.
