The Great Art Theft
April 25, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm
If the price tag has ever kept you from making a purchase from a local artists mark your calendar for the Great Art Theft exhibit running April 6- May 5 . The Ojai Art Center will again be hosting, “The Great Art Theft,” a fundraiser that you won’t want to miss with a reception and drawing on May 5th.
“It’s where original local art is a steal,” said Bonnie Riege, OAC gallery chair. “Fine art offered at ridiculously affordable prices. Seventy-five dollars gets you a chance at owning a piece of Ojai art.”
The Art Center Gallery Commitee has again lassoed many of the best artists in town to donate a piece of their work for purchase and all of it will be on display in the Gallery beginning April 6.
Patrons can purchase tickets for $75 each. At the event all the tickets will be put into a big spinning cage (like the ones you’ve seen on TV) and one lucky ticket at a time will be drawn. The person that holds that ticket gets to chose any piece of art off the gallery walls or from the showcase.
“Everyone has so much fun at these events and this year the funds will help pay for planned gallery renovations,” said Teri Mettala, OAC director. “The tickets will be on sale at the Art Center office during our regular business hours, Tuesday through Sunday noon to four.”
So get ready to decide just how many tickets it would be worth to make that dash to your favorite artist and help the Art Center in the process. All proceeds go to the Center.
The Ojai Art Center is located at 113 S. Montgomery St. For more information call the Art Center at
