Virtual Art Show
Enjoyed by ALL

OPICA's annual OUTSIDER / INSIDER Art Show went virtual this year on Zoom. A video/slide show captivated the more than 60 in attendance. You can see that slide show/video by clicking here.

The art is reduced pricing this year (COVID pricing) to $150 each. A number of the paintings have sold and there are still a number remaining through the end of December. You can see the art for sale here.

Thank you to the Art Show committee for putting together such a wonderful, warm, enjoyable event.

Yes, we love hearing from our members and their family. Here is one that arrived this week that feels great to hear. She asked us to share.

"I have told all of you at various times how grateful I am for OPICA, how good it is for my husband and how terrific a group of people are involved. I request all of you to watch the video of Don and his daughter, Kellye. They tell the OPICA story so much better than I can. I think you will get a more personal view of OPICA from listening to them. Then I hope you will be moved to add OPICA to your end of year gift giving to support and enlarge their outreach. It's the Most worthwhile and deserving group I know." - anonymous
