The End of Odd Fellows Art Exhibits
Amazing ... For over a decade, Art@OddFellows series featured unique exhibits each month of local arts presented by local artists. Over 2,000 adults and thousands of local children & young people have been part of the series. As many as 14,000 visitors each year enjoyed the shows and over $600,000 in sales meant local art found its way into homes near and far. Funds have been raised for local concerns like Otsuchi Recovery, raising local food, ocean issues, children's needs and much, much more. With music, poetry, writing, dance, and film, we've woven collaborations with visual arts over the years.
It all began by asking to borrow the space for one show...
Thanks to the generosity of the owner, historic Odd Fellows hall, built in 1878, has been a magnificent community gathering place for all this! Now the owner's interest to sell means Art@OddFellows wrapped in February 2018 with a final show called "Creative Voices". With over 300 markers, age 5 to 7, the exuberance of children's papermache masks and team paintings, combined with the Women's March in placards & photos, stunning Harvest Coats of Susan B. Wood and special Flockworks new projects. These diverse "voices" were a perfect ending, reflecting our dedication to creative community.
