Even though GVA activities have been humming along nicely due to our members following the guidlines set forth by health officials, the pandemic continues to have an impact all around us. The GVA board members and sketch facilitators have decided to restrict all studio activities to no more than 10 people, and masks are required. To participate, you need to put your name on the sign-up sheet that gets mailed via Mailchimp.
Grand Valley Artists has provided its members with SO many opportunities to gather and share our passion for art. If it has meant a lot to you, you might use that "Make a Donation" button on the left side of the screen to show the love. Or, you can send a check to GVA at 1695 Service Rd. NE, Suite 106, Grand Rapids, MI 49503. Without the Reeds Lake Art Festival, our main source of funding, we will deplete our funds. Help keep GVA strong! Make a donation today! THANKS!
Lowell Library has reopened and we're hanging new shows! Anne Crans will hang her photographs on February 5th for two months. Russ Barneveld's photographs go up in April for two months. I will hang my paintings for the month of June. Please contact me if you'd like to get on the list from July on.
Facebook does not need to be intimidating. You can become a Facebook user even if you have no intention of using it for anything else other than participating in our GVA pages. You will need to create an account by signing up on Facebook using your own name so we will know who you are and allow you to belong to our pages. When you have created your basic page set up, you will need to do a search at the top of the Home Page to find our GVA pages.
