We’ve been saying it for 11 months but we’ll say it again: If you’re in the business of gathering people into a space to experience and celebrate great, visual or otherwise, the COVID-19 crisis has been a gut punch.

But as we take baby steps toward some degree of normalcy over the next many months, arts organizations are starting to re-emerge with safe, measured plans to expose the community to the creativity that abounds in Mill Valley.

First up is longtime local outfit Murphy Productions, which is teaming up once again with O’Hanlon Center for the Arts in Mill Valley for its 7th Annual “Art of Love” Sunday Salon, this time as a virtual event. The event showcase features music by Tim Hockenberry, poetry from Cruwys Brown, photography of Paris from Lila Sparks-Daniels and more on Sunday, Feb. 14, at 5pm. $5–$20.

O’Hanlon is also opening up its gorgeous gallery space for viewing by appointment for the first time since the initial shelter-in-place order went into effect in March 2020. The gallery’s new show is “A Moment of Reflection,” is a collection of 42 contemplative works that you can see in person. The work was juried by Desta Gallery owner Emebet Korn. 

Gallery viewing is now available is 20-minute slots: Thursday 12-3pm,  Friday 5-7pm and Saturday 10am-12pm.
