Art Fairs


The City of Ojai Arts Commission presents Art Fairs and Festivals: How to Take Your Art on the Road. This presentation will be held at the Ojai Valley Museum, located at 130 W. Ojai Ave., on Thursday, July 13 from 2 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.

This is a very special presentation for all artists who:

  • Want to learn how to showcase their art
  • Want to leap into, and succeed in, the exhibition space
  • Want to expand their reach through art fairs and festivals
  • Want to transition from being a hobby artist to a self-supporting artist

It’s tough being an artist. It’s even tougher not knowing how to get your art in front of people and potential customers. Have no fear! The Ojai Arts Commission is hosting this month’s art enrichment presentation, Art Fairs and Festivals: How to Take Your Art on the Road!

This fun, informative and FREE presentation is led by the internationally acclaimed metal/jewelry artist, Elaine Unzicker. Elaine, who holds a Master of Fine Arts from Illinois State University, is the recipient of numerous prestigious awards recognizing her outstanding work and contributions. She is widely recognized and honored for her captivating creations and publications, which are a living testament to her mastery of the craft.

Elaine has received multiple awards at esteemed festivals across the nation including the Lakefront Festival of Arts in Milwaukee, the Coconut Grove Arts Festival in Florida, the Main Street Fort Worth Arts Festival in Texas and the Northern Virginia Fine Arts Festival. These awards and recognitions speak to the quality, breadth and resonance of Elaine’s work with diverse audiences.

Art fairs, festivals and events can (and do) make the difference between where you are and where you want to be, so please come and explore how to make that exciting jump!

This month's Ojai Arts Commission art enrichment presentation will provide invaluable insights into developing your art career beyond the borders of Ojai. Join us, and Elaine, for an engaging ‘A to Z’ presentation that will cover everything from expectations and finding events to costs, rewards, challenges, and, yes, the potential payoffs!

If you would like to learn how to get to the next level with your (or someone else’s) art career, we strongly encourage you to join us for this FREE presentation.

Elaine and the Ojai Arts Commission look forward to seeing you at Ojai Museum (130 W. Ojai Ave.) on July 13 from 2 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. and helping you navigate to, and through, the exciting world of art fairs and festivals.
