Porch Gallery Ojai
Barbie: An American Icon
Oil paintings by Judy Ragagli
Presented by Porch Gallery - Ojai and WallspaceLa
March 1 - 25 at the Porch Gallery 310 E. Matilija St., Ojai
Judy Ragagli's oil paintings are so life-like, many people have mistaken them for photographs. Her goal is to pay homage to this surviving icon of modernity, femininity, and style with her work. She wants her viewers to recognize nostalgic Barbie as an important and positive influence within American society on both the individual and aggregate levels. By presenting Barbie through portraiture on canvas, she aims to create a vision of Barbie that is still and noble, striving to elicit veneration for Barbie's legacy while painting a mark of beauty and grace into the world.

In order to achieve accurate tonal properties of Barbie's plastic flesh, Ragagli employs an arduous process of specialized mixing of oil colors that few artists have been able to master. Using only seven original color tubes of oil, she is able to precisely translate the vast and scintillating color properties of Barbie's skin, hair, make-up and wardrobe as they interact with reflective light. The effect of her process and style culminates in a cohesive vision of the beauty and grace of Barbie and the artist's own commentary on the significance of this great American Icon.

Ojai Concert Series
"The April Verch Band " "Energetic, virtuosic, tradition-celebrating fiddling and dazzling step dancing"
Thursday March 27th, 2014 @ 7:00 pm
Ojai Valley Woman's Club
April Verch has never sounded more comfortable in her skin than she does now, in the second decade of her career as an internationally touring Canadian fiddler, step dancer and singer-songwriter. Her ninth album, Bright Like Gold, captures a woman who's fleshed out her identity and is in full command of her gifts, a woman who's grown from a prodigy into an enduring artist-one of music's most unforgiving public transitions-with grace and grit to spare. She's of a generation far more likely to have spent its formative years taking in MTV than taking part in any sort of traditional music scene, and yet practically from birth she was immersed in folk music and dance from her native Ottawa Valley, a melting pot of Franco-Celtic flavors brought by the hard-working loggers who settled the area. The April Verch Band-rounded out by bassist and clawhammer banjo player Cody Walters and guitarist Hayes Griffin, who has a Masters in jazz improv from the New England Conservatory-is an energetic, virtuosic, tradition-celebrating outfit, not to mention one that's not soon forgotten when they depart the stage. It doesn't hurt that the thrilling grand finale involves Verch fiddling and step dancing-and often executing two entirely different intricate rhythmic patterns-at once.

Directed by Gai Jones
Ojai Art Center
113 S. Montgomery St. Ojai
Everything's coming up Ogres in "Shrek the Musical," the Broadway adaptation of Shrek, borne from Dreamwork's hit movie that was sort of a parody of Disney animations. But it instantly appealed to adults because of its wit, sense of fun and allusions to popular culture. Experience what's up in Duloc with the gang: Shrek, Fiona, Donkey and Farquaad; to the tune of the Grammy award winning musical score.
