The Mending Project
Last Chance to Participate in The Mending Project
The Mending Project, an interactive exhibition created by artist Lee Mingwei, has been in full swing in our gallery since September, inviting community members to bring garments and textiles in need of mending in order to come together in conversation.
Open for free to the public Thursday-Sunday from 12-4pm, the project will come to a close on Sunday, December 8, but there's still time to participate! Bring your own textiles in need of repair and one of our volunteer menders will incorporate it into the work. You can also visit and chat with the volunteers and other visitors, whether or not you bring in a garment. 
The exhibition closes on December 8 with a celebratory event at 12pm in which all participants who brought in an item are invited to return and retrieve their artistically-mended piece.

Classes Make Great Gifts!
Classes Make Great Gifts!
On the lookout for unique and thoughtful gift ideas for your friends, family, and loved ones? Consider giving a fun and creative class at Montalvo in a new artistic medium! 
This spring, we have classes in Ceramics (as well as Ceramics Studio Memberships for the devoted clay craftsperson), Contemporary Floral DesignWhirling, and Macro Photography
Any of these courses are great for beginners and experienced students alike, taught by professional artists and instructors, and represent a perfect way to encourage creativity. Register yourself and a friend or parter, and you'll have a perfect opportunity to deepen your connection through the arts. 

Individual Support of Montalvo Helps Us Thrive
Giving Thanks: Donors Like You
This Thanksgiving month, we are taking a moment to acknowledge those who help us thrive. This week, we want to offer our deepest thanks to our most vital contributors: you, our individual supporters. 
Your donations, large and small, are critical to our daily operations as a nonprofit organization and give us a foundation for creating our arts education programs, community events, and more. All of you who have bought a ticket to any concert, class, or conversation are also contributing to our success.
To those who have given, whether recently or long ago, a heartfelt THANK YOU to each and every one of you. 
If you are not yet a donor, please consider a contribution of any size to help us continue our vital work providing arts and inspiration to the community. Gifts to our Million Dollar Challenge will help us receive a matching gift from a generous donor. With your help, we hope to continue to serve you in the years ahead.
