O’Hanlon Center for the Arts provides an environment and spaces
where creativity and community can develop, expand and flourish


From the Board and Staff
Dear OHCA Community:

April 1, 2020  As most are aware, the entire Bay Area has extended the “shelter in place” coronavirus order and all non-essential businesses are now closed until at least May 3.  

We have been working on bringing some workshops online.  Please look on our website calendar to see what facilitators are doing so.  We are also going to host online gallery shows.  If you are not receiving email notifications please request to be added (see adjacent form).

We will continue to monitor the situation surrounding the coronavirus and keep you updated about our upcoming public programs.  We wish everyone good health and invite you all to stay connected with each other through our newly created “O’Hanlon From Home” Facebook page.  Keep creative at home and share your work and discoveries remotely until we can meet together as a community in person again.


Erma & Ellen and the entire OHCA Board of Directors.

Ways to Participate at O’Hanlon Center

Events & Exhibitions at OHCA are open to the public.
Here are 6 ways you can participate!

Attend a Workshop

Programs offered at O’Hanlon emphasize the creative process and the continued pursuit of meaning and authenticity through observation, exploration, and experimentation.

Our programs are  designed to allow your own perceptions to inspire your art.

Visit our Galleries

The O’Hanlon Gallery features juried group shows which change monthly, showcasing a wide range of local artists.

The Loft Gallery shows work by individual O’Hanlon members and small groups.

Admission to our galleries is always free!

Submit your Artwork

Submissions to our monthly Gallery shows are open to Members and non-Members alike.

Exhibits are juried by SF Bay Area gallery owners and prominent local artists.

When you become a member, you join a community of artists and art enthusiasts who gather in our beautiful setting to dialogue and share their work, ideas and inspiration.

Memberships are available for individuals and households, and start at just $95/year.


As a 501(c)3 non-profit, we depend on donations large and small from supportive individuals and businesses.

Our beautiful new street sign above was made possible by a donation from one of our members!


This organization thrives with active participation from so many people!

Volunteer opportunities include: assisting with art intake days, setting up for receptions or special events, planting succulents in our sculpture gardens, participating in committees and more.

O’Hanlon Center grounds are open to the public from 9 am-9 pm. We’re in a residential area, so please be conscious of our neighbors!
