FLOCKworks help expand ways to share and enjoy local arts.
Historic Odd Fellows hall, built in 1878, is one of Mendocino's most prominent buildings. It is two stories high with spectacular views over roof tops and out to the Mendocino Bay and headlands. In modern history, this was home to the premier Art Gallery for 42 years, led by the Warren Zimmer and then son William, all during the rise of local Art scene. It is center piece to our Open-Door-Arts commitment.
Arts @ Odd Fellows began in 2007 with loan of this special building to allow groups of Artists to present special short-term exhibits. Today, FLOCKworks facilitates this on-going series of monthly exhibits with painting, sculpture, ceramics, textiles, photography, fine wood working, and much more: over 2,500 adults and 5,000 children have shared work with 12,000 annual visitors. Artists themselves organize and host diverse and unique shows with music, readings, hands-on art and other happenings are sometimes added to the mix. Odd Fellows also hosts the Mendocino Film Festival (May 28-30, 2015) here. Historic Odd Fellows is located on Kasten and Ukiah Streets, one block up from Main Street. FLOCKworks office and our Gallery Project is the little yellow building at the bottom of the stairs of the same property. 707-937-2486
