The annual October pilgrimage to the artistic heart of Ojai now brings 1,000 people to over 60 artists' studios to see their latest creations, view works in progress and enjoy a weekend of fine art and conversation. The fall is a glorious time of year in Ojai, with studios spread throughout the valley with the artists' gardens full of autumn colors.

For many years now, the second weekend in October has been a frenzy of creative activities throughout the Ojai Valley with the Ojai Art Center on Montgomery St as its hub. The Ojai Art Center will display an exhibition of works by the Ojai Studio Artists, host the Artists Reception Saturday night and be the starting location where visitors can view a sample of work by each artist participating in the Ojai Studio Artists Tour that weekend.

Over 60 studios throughout the enchanting Ojai Valley will be open each day from 10am to 5pm, with artist demonstrations at select studios.

This year there's a special exhibit, "Finding Light," at the Ojai Valley Museum.

The Gala Reception takes place Friday, October 8, 2021, 7 p.m. at the museum. The event is both an opportunity to socialize with OSA artists and a fundraiser  benefiting the OSA Art Outreach and Scholarship Funds.
