OAA Board members needed.
We need a Trip Director and a Publicity Director now, and next year we will need elected members of the board. If you think you could help or need further information, call Phil Wilkinson at 707 529-4587. In the past, we have had a bus trip in November, but there will be none this year due to lack of a Trip Director. Help us out with your skills, or double up with a friend to fill a vacant position.
The Oakmont Art Association
We have approximately 240 members, people interested in art and artists. We hold monthly meetings in the Berger Center on the second Friday of the month, excepting December and the summer months of June through August. These are usually presentations by docents from the San Francisco Museums who talk about current exhibitions. In October, we have an Annual Art Show, and profits from that go towards art scholarships for students at the SRJC who are continuing on to a four year art major. In June, we have an annual Open Studio weekend with approximately 20 to 30 artists opening their working spaces to the public for viewing and sales. We hold three to four workshops a year in the CAC art room at which artists can learn new techniques from other artists. We have a monthly art critique group and a plein air painting group. If you are an artist or someone interested in art and an Oakmont resident, we invite you to join us at our events. Dues are $20 a calendar year. Our Email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
