GIVE ME ART... Lively & diverse...

Open-Door-Arts @ Odd Fellows has been an amazing four year run of diverse and lively local arts exhibits! With this magnificent loaned space, over 1,800 adults and children have shown work with about 12,000 visitors each year!

Just opened...Art of Learning...A Celebration of Creativity is the 55th exhibit in this series that highlights life-long creative learning. With art-makers from age 5 to 92 years old, an underlying focus honors "teachers of the arts" who pass along their creative intent. The show runs through the Memorial Weekend. Over 600 people have been in to this special exhibit. "It makes me feel like dancing" was one visitor's comment.

Next... Mendocino Film Festival
