It has become an annual tradition to celebrate “Art of the Spirit” in December at O’Hanlon, and we invite artists to submit work for our next exhibit. Submitted work should relate to some aspect of Spiritual Life, including spiritual ecology, ritual, mysticism or other forms of spiritual expression. We encourage artists to express from their own personal experience of ‘spirit’ in their lives.

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