Concerts, camps, and your last chance to see this exhibition

Added THU, MAY 26TH 2016

See Particles one last time at Open Access

James Gouldthorpe

Join us this Friday, May 28, at 6pm for a special Open Access event: the closing reception of James Gouldthorpe's Particles: A Painting in Ten Chapters, on view in the Project Space Gallery until Sunday, May 29.

You'll have the opportunity to meet and chat with Gouldthorpe as he leads a tour of the show—and as a special treat, newly-selected LAP Fellow Matthew Petty, a musician, composer, and video artist, will perform. He will be joined by Jessica Washburn, an Oakland-based Culinary Fellow turned Artist Fellow, who will read a selection of her poems in response to themes raised by the exhibition.

Want a little extra insight about Particles? Poet and former LAP Fellow Linda Lancione also wrote a poetic response to Gouldthorpe's exhibition. Read these poems and learn more about these works (as well as other activity in our Lucas Artists Residency Program) on our Open Access blog

We hope to see you Friday as we enjoy an exciting ending to a wonderful show. Delicious, fresh tacos will be available for purchase, as will beer, wine, and soda. RSVP to this free event below, and invite some friends to enjoy an evening at Montalvo!

Summer Camps are just two weeks away!

Summer Camps


If you're a parent, you know how hard it is to plan your summer in advance. With travel, sports, and other activities always popping up on the calendar, sometimes it's hard to predict what your family will be doing in the next week or two. 

If that's the reason you haven't signed your child up yet for one of our awesome 2016 Summer Camps, now is the time to start thinking about it: believe it or not, summer vacation is just around the corner, and our camps begin on Monday, June 6. Register today before it's too late!

We've got camps in digital media, music, drawing, painting, performing arts, engineering, three dimensional craftwork, and more. With so many options, you're sure to find something your child will love. But many of these camps have already filled up, so don't delay.

Click the button below to see the full schedule of camps, and we hope your child will come and get creative with us this summer!
