Summer Fund Drive  

July 27, 2022 from Board President and Executive Director

Dear Friends of OHCA

In spite of the pandemic, we have had a good year.  Our workshops, exhibits and events have continued to inspire and to bring the community together in-person and online.

We invite you to continue to be an important part of this wonderful community at O’Hanlon Center for the Arts. Your contributions make our programs a reality.

We thank you so very much for funding the SAVE THE LOFT culvert repair. We are now enjoying a safer Loft and a beautiful new driveway and entry.  But what began as a $60,000-$70,000 repair actually resulted in a cost of over $200,000. 

With other projects, current and future still to be addressed, our current Summer Fund Drive is now more important than ever. 

 Your tax-deductible contributions will support the center and enable us to complete those projects still on our list:

  • In-person Gallery show sponsorship. Your donation of $500 pays for the juror, the installation of the show and production of the print program. You or your company name will be acknowledged in the print program and online as well as in our email and social media announcements. You may also anonymously dedicate the show to someone! 
  • Safe Pathways Project: Railing installation urgently needed to connect Koya (the ceramic studio) to the parking lot.  
  • Gallery renovation: new carpet upstairs, LED lighting, and replacement of the large upstairs windows.
  • General Fund.  Always appreciated!



Your donations make these projects a reality. Help us continue to support the arts and keep O’Hanlon a vital part of our community.  THANK YOU!

– Erma and Jackie
