This Monday, February 27th, we'll be hanging the artwork for our GVA Gallery Exhibit for March, entitled WATER. Art that depicts water in any of its forms. It could be a glass of water or even a drop of water. It could be oceans, lakes, streams, estuaries or swimming pools. This exhibit is not juried and the works do not have to be framed, only hangable.
Also: Please remember to pick up your art from our February show on FLOWERS, which was
one of our best exhibits ever. Thank you for your participation.

Celebration of the Arts

Forty-four years ago, Marion DeVinney and her husband, members of the First United Methodist Church in Grand Rapids, decided to start an art show as part of their Celebration of the Arts. This year the church was fortunate enough to have Mrs. DeVinney as the juror for this wonderful annual art competition. In her Juror’s Statement, Mrs. DeVinney said, “I again realized how rich Grand Rapids is in artistic talent.”  230 entries were submitted and 131 were chosen to hang in the show. Thirty-three pieces chosen were from members of Grand Valley Artists.

In Our Gallery

Our February exhibit, Sunflowers (or Other Brilliantly Colored Flowers) is currently brightening the GVA meeting room. Be sure to swing by during regular GVA studio hours (see calendar) to see these beautiful works. And up next....
