I'm very excited for my upcoming show at the Ojai Art Center with my mother, Ojai artist Sylvia Raz (whose work is on the far right) and my brother, LA-based photographer Alan Raz (whose work is in the center. I'm on the far left.) Read the press release on the Society of Illustrators of LA blog.
Opening reception Sunday, September 7, 1-3 pm
Ojai Art Center
113 S. Montgomery Street
Ojai, CA 93023
Show runs from September 6 through October 2
My work for this show was inspired by tarot cards. I explored the narrative in tarot known as "The Fool's Journey." The story implies that we all begin as "The Fool" - open and optimistic - and as we go through life, we're influenced by various forces, both positive and negative, embodied by the archetypal characters in each card.
For those of you who haven't been, Ojai is a beautiful town south of Santa Barbara. The Ojai Art Center is a great community resource with a warm gallery space. I hope to see you there!
