Local Artists – Your Go-To Place for Gifts
Our featured artist for May is Emmy MacKenzie, goldsmith and jeweler. She made her first lost wax casting piece in a high school art class, but it wasn’t until almost ten years later that she began working professionally as a bench jeweler. Emmy studied traditional gold smithing techniques in Vancouver Canada. She is now a member artist with our gallery and we are proud to have her as our featured artist this month, please stop by and see her beautiful jewelry.
OVA offers a unique selection of contemporary fine arts, jewelry and crafts by LOCAL artists in the heart of downtown Ojai, California. Open from 10 am to 6 pm at 238 E. Ojai Ave., Ojai, CA 93023.
As Rebekah Joy Plett wrote, “When you buy from an independent artist you are buying more than just a painting or a novel or a song. You are buying hundreds of hours of experimentation and thousands of failures. You are buying days, weeks, months, years of frustration and moments of pure joy…. You aren’t just buying a thing – you are buying a piece of heart, part of a soul, a private moment in someone’s life.”
We appreciate your support.
