Ojai Studio Tour

Ojai is one of those quirky Southern California art towns where creative spirits have fled the big city and set up studios in a more copasetic environment.

This artistic oasis is located between Santa Barbara and Los Angeles and is a pleasant detour if you are driving the coastal road. If you happen to be driving this route this upcoming weekend, however, you must absolutely visit. That’s because October 13 kicks off the 24th Annual 2007 Ojai Studio Art Tour where 40 resident artists will open up their studios to the public.

Studio tours are always rewarding in my opinion; even if the art sucks, it’s always fascinating to see how the artists work and the eccentric ways they’ve decorated their live-in studios.

And if it’s still not your thing, wine country is always nearby…
