The Agenda: Ojai’s In The Field, Hollyhock House, And California Dreaming



In The Field

90 miles from Los Angeles, the sleepy town of Ojai is getting a decidedly design-centric bent. Husband and wife duo, Channon and Bianca Roe, recently opened In The Field in a Spanish Colonial Revival-style building to bring their well-traveled lifestyle sensibility to this increasingly popular weekend destination. Channon also uses the store as a home base for his budding interior design business. Look for Rachel Craven table linens and Matteo bedding, both LA-made goods that are artfully displayed on plywood shelving and vintage tables.

When: 11am-6pm, Wednesday–Friday; 10am-6pm, Saturday; 10am-4pm, Sunday

Where: 730 East Ojai Avenue, Ojai



“California Dreaming”

Artists across the globe were called on to interpret SoCal culture in this juried show that will travel to three different locations in the US and abroad. Drawing from nearly 900 contemporary works in various mediums, the exhibit both challenges and reinforces the notion of the “California Dream.”

When: Through Sunday, 3/29

Where: Oceanside Museum of Art, 704 Pier View Way, Oceanside 



Registry x March

Fine home goods store March recently launched Registry by March, a new online and in-store gifting service featuring the store’s curated collections, including Brickett Davda ceramics, Michael Verheyden decorative accessories, and Deborah Ehrlich crystal glassware. Brides-to-be can now create, share, and track their registries through March’s website. Up next: an exclusive line of made-to-order monogram dinnerware, glassware, and table linens slated for later this spring. 

When: 10am-6pm, Monday–Saturday

Where: 3075 Sacramento Street, San Francisco



SFAQ Project Space

The first incarnation of San Francisco Art Quarterly’s [Project] Space will open in a 1,200 square foot Tenderloin storefront that was just converted from a massage parlor into a raw exhibition space. Scheduled to open on March 13, the space will host four months of free programming, including envelope-pushing exhibitions, performances, and discussions. A full calendar of events will go live on March 9. 

When: 6-9pm, Friday, 3/13

Where: 449 O’Farrell Street, San Francisco

Hollyhock House


Hollyhock House

Frank Lloyd Wright’s 1921 design was originally built as a private home for oil heiress Aline Barnsdall, but the 5,000-square-foot abode was donated to the city and has just been nominated as a UNESCO site. The landmark building in the middle of Barnsdall Art Park is seeing visitors again following an extensive three-year shutdown to fix leaks, drainage problems, and the restoration of architectural details. This is a rare chance to set foot inside the only Frank Lloyd Wright structure on the West Coast that’s open to the public. 

When: 11am-4pm, Thursday–Sunday

Where: 4800 Hollywood Boulevard, Los Angeles
