Join us on our mission ....

We are dedicated to maintaining a place on the Monterey Peninsula that is an oasis for self-expression through the artistic soul; a safe haven for the novice, an ally or the professional artist and a home for the creative adult. 

Members Matter! When you become an OGS Member, your investment helps build and sustain the artistic process in our community, you create jobs for local artists, and you reinforce an on-going arts education program for an intergenerational classroom, inside a safe art-centered shared economy.
