The Ojai Valley Museum in California has envisioned the “Ojai Mystique” art exhibition as an homage to and a continuation of the historic legacy of painting in the Ojai Valley. Co-curators Dan Schultz and Jennifer Moses, both Ojai-based painters, invited 21 nationally renowned artists to create two paintings of Ojai Valley scenes: a large masterwork, and a smaller landscape.

The legendary natural beauty of the Ojai Valley has attracted artists since the 19th Century. Edgar Payne along with Elmer and Marion Wachtel were most notably among the early California Impressionists to find inspiration for their plein air paintings in Ojai. Many continue to follow in their footsteps.

Exhibition Artists: Meredith Brooks Abbott, Peter Adams, John Budicin, Marcia Burtt, Len Chmiel, John Cosby, Steven Curry, Rick Garcia, Logan Maxwell Hagege, Robin Hall, Jennifer McChristian, Jennifer Moses, Charles Muench, John Nava, Michael Obermeyer, Susan Petty, Jesse Powell, Ray Roberts, Dan Schultz, Frank Serrano, Wendy Wirth
