Mount Shasta's Sisson Museum presents a visual history of the art of Tom O'Hara in a multi-media exhibit of both public and personal artwork spanning the artist’s 37 year presence in Mount Shasta.  

Alongside beautiful original works in classic mediums and representations of familiar murals, the presentation will include an enlightening display of original sketches, patterns and other examples of the intricate preparatory work that goes into work like this – something the public doesn't usually get a chance to see.

From Tom's arrival in Mount Shasta in 1973 he has had a positive impact on the visual richness of the area, having received more than 13 beautification awards and a commendation for his consistently excellent and historically appropriate work in graphic and architectural design. All of this while keeping up an impressive output of watercolors, oil paintings, etchings, sculpture and costume designs.

See the many sides of a local master of fine art at this eclectic exhibit at Sisson Museum from July 2 to July 18.

The museum is open  10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Saturday, and 1 to 4 p.m. Sunday.

An artist’s reception is scheduled for Saturday, July 10, at 7 p.m.
