“Inner Space” by Mary Neville


Working in acrylic and mixed media, Mary Neville builds her canvases into rich, subtle layers. “I can labor over a painting for a very long time trying to figure out what wants to come out and then, at the right moment, it all comes together,” she says. “I love that spontaneity.” She will open her studio from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on April 13 as part of the Ojai Studio Artists Second Saturday Tour.
Five other artists, all with studios in the Arbolada, will also be on the tour: Brian Berman, Ted Gall, Pamela Grau, Gale E. Hayman, Karen Lewis and Soni Wright. The tour is free and self-guided. For a tour map and more information, visit
