Holiday Competition and Party!

Our Annual GVA Member Exhibit and Holiday Party will be held at our GVA Studio this year. If you wish to enter your artwork, it will be due at the studio on Saturday, December 3. This will be a juried show, and if your work is selected, it will be on display until Saturday, December 31. Please note that this year we are only receiving one entry per person so that there will be far less unaccepted works. As usual, the party will be on the second Thursday of the month, which is December 8th. Here is the application, which you should complete and bring with your entry.

Exploitation or Invitation?

by Steve Scarborough
I went on the website for the Broad museum in East Lansing, which has interesting exhibits I like to catch from time to time. This paragraph was lifted from the website.
Throughout her career Sam Jury has focused her attention on the psychological impact of photographic and moving images and how their ubiquity shapes our understanding of self and society.
