The Carolyn Glasoe Bailey Foundation and Ojai Institute proudly present a Queer Art Pop Up Exhibition and Poetry Reading showcasing emerging Ojai artists! Please join us at 248 South Montgomery St. in Downtown Ojai, August 5th at 4-7pm to celebrate the work of Noah Cannaday, Ren D’Angelo, Adi DeClerk, Hope Fairbanks, Maya Leeloo Rohe, and Sieren Ureño Clayton. This pop up show will be open to the public Saturday, August 5th at the opening reception from 4-7pm and Sunday, August 6th from 12-4pm.This exhibition has been curated by Sieren Ureño Clayton as the culmination of his summer Artist Fellowship with the foundation.
Clayton says “This exhibition was created to be a safe space to center and celebrate queer artists in Ojai. Each artist was given the freedom to choose the pieces that they feel represent them most as artists and as people. My hope with this show is to create a space for people to make meaningful connections within the queer and art communities as well as celebrate the wonderful artists showcasing their work…Community is integral in the lives of all queer people and it is something that I would like to foster in Ojai; for the many generations of queer people who, like myself, wanted to have more of a community growing up and for the new generation of queer youth who I hope will feel like they have more community than those before them.”
Come support these five, wonderful queer Ojai artists!
