NOVEMBER 11 – DECEMBER 23

Shopping in the malls and big stores will be an issue for many folks this holiday season. The stunning work of our local artists is the ideal solution. Shoppers can find one-of-a-kind creations for sale in our virtual holiday exhibit.
It’s a seasonal tradition that has
something for everyone!

SO MUCH STILL TO
BE THANKFUL FOR

WITH APPRECIATION TO ALL
OUR MEMBERS AND FRIENDS!

“Gratitude turns what we have into enough,
and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos into order, confusion into clarity…it makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates
a vision for tomorrow.”

— Melody Beattie, American author

STATUS UPDATE:
WE’RE STILL HERE!

The Art Center survived the horrendous fire that so devastated our beautiful San Lorenzo Valley, Bonny Doon, and North Coast areas. Our hearts go out to all the people, including some of our members, who lost their homes. We know that many people are are still in shock and trying to recover. This has been a hard year for our community and the country as a whole.

In compliance with state & county orders, the Santa Cruz Mountains Art Center is temporarily closed
for in-person activities until further notice. Thank you for your understanding.
We look forward to welcoming you back to the Art Center soon.
