The Milpitas Phantom Art Gallery is located in the Milpitas Community Center (457 E. Calaveras Blvd.) and the Milpitas Library (160 N Main St.).

The Milpitas Arts Commission, the advisory body to the Milpitas Phantom Art Gallery, has committed itself to promoting awareness of the arts in the Milpitas Community, working with local regional and international artists.

Artist’s Reception: Saturday, October 12 from 1:00PM-3:00PM

Berryessa resident Ronald Appleby creates bold, colorful paper collages, using magazine clippings, advertisements, gum wrappers, postage stamps and other paper items. Ronald had a brief introduction to collage in art class at James Lick High

School in 1964, but mostly developed his technique through experimentation, correcting his work in the moment by gluing a new piece of paper on top of the old without waiting for it to dry. His work has been exhibited at the Martin Luther King Jr. Library at San Jose State University, and he has been a member of the East Valley Artists since 2014.
