Art Association

Volunteers Needed

The Art Association needs to fill some vacant positions on the Board. We need a recording secretary for our board meetings to prepare minutes. Its an easy job that takes little time. We need a publicity director who can interface with the media and prepare advertising materials for our events. We need a volunteer greeter who welcomes people to our events. We need a trip director to organize trips to museums and other sites of interest. If you think you could help the OAA in any of these areas, call Philip Wilkinson at 707 529-4587 or email at

Art in the OVA Offices

If you have been in the OVA Offices lately you saw many new paintings and photos on the previously bare walls. Thanks to donations of works from Oakmont photographers, artists and residents, we have filled the available spaces and made the offices brighter and more interesting. We thank Kevin Hubred and the staff for their enthusiasm and acceptance of this project that allows some of our resident artists to show their work.
