For our May 2018  Gallery exhibit “Magic of Mirth,” we’re in search of the unexpected!  For example… Miro, Klee, and Chagall brought us the zany, amusing, and magical to their art.

Sculptural and 3D pieces are welcome.

Contemporary, expressionistic, abstract, exploratory, and/or experimental entries encouraged.


O’Hanlon Center for the Arts emphasizes the creative process and the continued pursuit of meaning and authenticity through observation, exploration, and experimentation.
