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 O’Hanlon Community:

Happy October! It is hard to believe we are reaching into the last quarter of 2020. It has been a tumultuous year for everyone. Yet, because of your support, we have continued to persevere. THANK YOU!

The Board and Staff are working hard towards the goal of re-opening in some capacity at the end of January 2021 – only a few months away! We are looking at various scenarios and making contingency plans focusing sustainability and remaining a creative oasis for you, while adhering to safety protocols and following state guidelines.

We have continued to increase our online offerings, with some incredible successes and firsts regarding our exhibitions. Keep submitting your comments and suggestions for programming you’d like to see. We welcome your input and want to make our online community as robust as our in person community.

Our facilities continue to be rented out and have some short term studio space available, if you are interested in enjoying a quiet, inspiring place to encourage your creativity, please contact Erma for details and information.

Again, THANK YOU for your continued support and involvement in the online version of OHCA.

We wish everyone good health and invite you all to stay connected with each other through our “O’Hanlon From Home” Facebook page and Instagram page. Keep creative at home and share your work and discoveries remotely until we can meet together as a community in person again.


Naomi Tamura, Board President
Erma & Ellen and the entire OHCA Board of Directors.
