OSA Re-opens January 16th

After being closed for the last 8 days due to the 12 “ of snow we got this past Tuesday and Wednesday, followed by  sub-freezing temperatures, OSA will be open again tomorrow (Monday) morning January, 16th. Joanne Mehl’s class on Alla Prima Portrait Painting will begin at 9:30 am.  Michael Musto will be facilitating Open Studio from 1:30 - 4:30 Monday afternoon. The OSA office and gallery will reopen Tuesday, January 17th, at the regular times.

The classes of Jan Browne,  Janet Parker, and Michael Orwick have been cancelled for tomorrow, January 16th. All 3 of these instructors, Jan, Janet, and Michael, will resume their classes on Monday, January 23rd.

The OSA parking lot was plowed on Friday.  This has improved accessibility to the OSA building.  Traffic movement on the surrounding streets has improved as well.  It still favors drivers with traction devices,  AWD or 4 wheel drive.

Updated Winter Weather News

Updated Winter Weather News at OSA

OSA is closed today, January 13th. We will also be closed Saturday, January 14th.  We are having the parking lot cleared of snow and ice this morning. There will be some piling of snow at the north end of the lot.This is being done to get a jump on next week's classes. The road conditions in and around OSA are much improved and cars appear to moving well on those streets close to OSA.   We are expecting warmer weather beginning Monday and rain beginning on Tuesday. At this point Monday looks like the best chance we have to resume classes. We will keep our instructors and members apprised of the conditions in and around OSA.

The January Volunteer Show Reception scheduled for this coming Sunday has been postponed until Sunday, January 22nd, 1 - 3pm.

The 2nd Thursday Demo has been moved to Thursday, January 19th. Nancy Smith Klos was originally scheduled to be the guest artist but has had to cancel due to illness. Dorothy Fitzgerald has agreed to step in and provide the demonstration on Thursday, January 19th, at 11am.

Please follow the instructions from you instructors as to when they will  resume classes next week.

This has been a trying time for all of us and we hope all of you remain safe.  We will see you next week as classes resume.

Snow Days - Sorry Closed

OSA will be closed Friday,  January 13th & Saturday January 14th.  We are watching the weather for more news about Sunday.

The decision about the Volunteer Show Reception will be made as we get closer to Sunday. Several things still effect the reception on Sunday. The parking lot still has inches of snow and we are concerned for the safety of the membership. The other issue we face is the road conditions in and around downtown Portland.  As you know Seattle has sent in several trucks and crews and they will start working on the roads today, this will be a big help, however, that said, there is still the extreme cold to deal with.

We will keep you posted and we hope to resume all classes next week.

The 2nd Thursday Demo has been moved to next week, it looks like the weather will be more helpful.

For more information on your class please call or email your instructor. They will have the information you need on your classes. Most instructors have already spoken to you either by email or phone, however, please do not hesitate to get in touch with them if you have more questions.

You can go the the OSA website and follow the link to classes and then to your class information.
