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.

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.

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.

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!
