Spring is on its way and OHCA is getting ready

The paper whites and daffodils are popping up and the grounds are lush and green.

We are very excited that our landscape restoration project at the entrance to the Center is almost done! Thank you to CNP Nursery of Mill Valley for the amazing work and for the Outdoor Art Club for funding the first phase! All the plants are California natives! Our landscape committee has also been busy planting Milkweed, poppies and other deer resistant plants. 

Our March In Gallery and Online show has a focus on the natural world: Art & Ecology juried by artist, writer and ecological philosopher, Obi Kaufman. Please check out his website: https://coyoteandthunder.com/

Find out more on our Call for Entries page.

We have a new outdoor sculpture welcoming all to the Center – just in time for Valentine’s Day: Fan of Hearts created by Mill Valley’s own Tim Ryan and his assistant Cameron Ross. This fun and playful sculpture will be up for three months!

NEWS FLASH: Our second annual Artist in Residence is now taking applications.  Artists will spend four weeks here at the Center in July! Go here for details:

We hope to see you around the Center this Spring.
