(Mill Valley, CA - December 7, 2010) On Tuesday, December 7, from 6 to 8 p.m., O'Hanlon Center for the Arts will present an Open House and Reception for its December exhibit "Art of the Spirit: Duality," a group show juried by Rafael Jesús González, poet, artist, elder in the ritual group Xochipilli, and creator of Día de los muertos "ofrenda" displays for the Oakland Museum of California, the Mexican Museum of San Francisco, and the Mission Cultural Center in San Francisco. The show runs through December 29, 2010.

Submitted works will reflect the theme of seemingly opposing forces as they relate to a spiritual realm. Examples of work on display may include exploration of Darkness/Lightness, Advancing/Retreating, Simplicity/Garishness, Reduction/Addition, Love/Hate, Spiritual/Physical, Male/Female, Yin/Yang, Wildness/Domestication, or Youth/Age.
Avant garde and experimental works are always highlighted at O'Hanlon Center.

Preceding the reception on Tuesday, December 7, O'Hanlon Center will host a Roundtable Discussion from 4 to 6 p.m. where artists participating in the show speak a bit about their work and exchange ideas about media and processes. This monthly meeting is free, open to the public, and is facilitated by artist and author and painter Pelier Marion.

The opening show on December 7 is part of the Mill Valley Art Commission's monthly Gallery Walk, First Tuesday. The event is free of charge and open to all ages. Artwork on display is available for purchase.

Elise Cheval is a multi-talented and visionary artist. Her paintings are exuberant in style and her fiber art pieces continually break new ground in their approach and use of unconventional media. A must-see show! The Loft Gallery is adjacent to the O'Hanlon Gallery on the Center grounds.
