The opening reception for Studio Channel Islands Art Center April 2013 exhibition, Imaginary Minds, invited the students and faculty of Oxnard College to create something in a style that is uniquely their own. The reception was an exciting experience for everyone who attended, as for many students this was their first show in a professional gallery. We were especially excited about this month’s exhibition because the gallery had the special privilege to award our annual $1,000 Award for Excellence Scholarship to Donna Espinoza, who entered three pieces into the show. The scholarship was presented based on the artists’ technical abilities, creativity, and style. We love to give artists of every age and style an opportunity to show their work, and this exhibition especially highlights all of the truly unique talent we have here in the Ventura County area.
Imaginary Minds is open until April 27th, so come see this exhibition before it’s too late!

Our Beer Garden at the Summer Market was a success, due to the tasty “Big Ass Red” served by The LAB Brewery. Join us for an encore during Fiesta Camarillo on Friday, July 13, and Saturday, July 14, at the artists’ studios. Bring your own food and enjoy good beer (or wine) & company. We’ll tap the barrel at 3pm.

Usually taking art off gallery walls is frowned upon, but not at Studio Channel Islands Art Center’s “100 for 100” fundraiser on March 18 in Old Town Camarillo. Artists-in-residence donated over 100 pieces to be raffled off at the annual event.
“I’ve been coming every year. The quality of the art here is so superior. It’s so generous of the artists to give up these priceless works,” said Peg Hicks-Moore.
Tickets were sold in advance for $100 each. Guests received a ticket with their name on it as they arrived at the art gallery. The first 25 guests were in group A; the next 25 were in group B, and so on.
“They put their cards into a bowl and we draw out names,” said artist-in-residence Arlene Mead as she welcomed people to the event. “Guests could buy tickets online, by phone and in person,” she said.
