Tell Me a Story!

The art of storytelling through visual arts

First Tuesday ArtWalk Opening Reception
Tuesday, July 10, 5:30-7:30 pm

Artist Roundtable Dialogue – 4:00-5:30 pm

Sunday Salon —  July 15, 5:00-8:00 pm


For our July 2018 exhibit, we celebrate the art of storytelling through visual arts.

As writers depict stories through plot and character, artists create stories with color, line, gesture and imagery.

Like visual storytellers Bonnard, Rauschenberg, Twombly and Joan Brown, or sculptors Giacometti and Jeff Koons, every artist has a story to tell in the visual medium.

We’ve invited artists to enter their own narratives, as contemporary, expressionistic, abstract, exploratory, and/or experimental works in all media including 3D and sculptural.

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