Winter is Almost Here and That Means HOLIDAY ARTS!

Please join us for an End of the Year Party and Gift Sale on Dec 15 from 5 to 7 p.m. There will be Music, Art and Food!

We are accepting donations for the gift sale at the event. If you have handmade works that can be priced at $50 or less that you want to donate, please contact the office.

We have a new OHCA program – featuring outdoor art. A new large eye-catching outdoor artwork will be installed at the entrance to the Center every three months.We are working on raising funds to help selected artists transport and install their work.

Be sure to come see this program’s debut work and all our outdoor sculptural art. “The FORK” art by Tim Ryan has replaced the “CAT” and will be up until Dec 15, when it will be auctioned off at our End of the Year Party.

Also, up through January, just as you enter our driveway, is a 7-foot portrait of John Trudell created here at OHCA on a redwood plank by Mike Goldberg. Mike wanted to honor a Native American who was both an artist and an activist for November’s Native American Heritage Month. Find out more about John Trudell HERE.

Thank you for your generous donations for our Gallery Renovations! A new carpet was installed on Nov 9, just in time for the ANNUAL MEMBERS SHOW which runs from Dec 15 to Jan 30.

All Artist Level members are automatically accepted into the show with one work of their choice. It’s never too late to become a member! JOIN NOW!  

Happy Holidays,

– Erma and Jackie
