Larry Blovits, Candice Chovanec, and Larry Goff were the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners at our 2017 Christmas competition. Be sure to stop in the new space at 1695 Service Rd. NE to see their beautiful paintings and all of the entries. The show will remain until January 6.
The move is complete!!!! Our new studio and critique areas are ready for you! See you Monday at 10 for our first portrait sketch in the new space. Click on "Read more" to see photos of our new space!
The theme of our first GVA exhibit of the year is the human figure. Figures can be nude or clothed. They can be presented against a neutral background or figures can be engaged in a narrative of some kind. All 2D and 3D art is eligible, including drawings, paintings, prints, sculpture, photography, digital works, mixed media, etc. This exhibit is not juried and the works do not have to be framed, only hangable. ( 2D art must have a wire in back.)
