Just a reminder that this Saturday, June 16, is the 53rd annual Reeds Lake Art Festival. This is GVA's main fundraiser of the year, and we hope you and your friends will join us! Over 100 booths to visit! No sketch, as many of us will be busy at the festival.
On Tuesday, June 12th, Steve Scarborough talked about our upcoming Reeds Lake Art Festival, which is this Saturday, June 16th, in East Grand Rapids. We will post a link to the segment when one becomes available. Thanks, Steve!
Grand Valley Artists has once again been accepted as a venue for ArtPrize. Our location this year will be at the former Water Treatment Building, Street Level at 1101 N. Monroe Ave. NW.
The theme for July's exhibit is art that connects emotionally with the viewer. This doesn't necessarily mean a warm and fuzzy connection. Art can communicate sadness, surprise, anger, revulsion or of course it could be pure joy. Realism, impressionism and abstract expressionism can all connect with the viewer. Our job as artists, is to make the viewer feel something. 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.
Be sure to swing by Bliss & Vinegar to see the works of Mary Marin now on display. While you are there, grab a healthy and deliciously fresh salad. GVA is happy to have this wonderful partnership with B&V. Pay them a visit!
Alla Prima painting, or wet into wet, is a stimulating method which teaches you to be present in every brush stroke, focusing on only the essentials. This workshop will instruct students on painting the model from life. The workshop will concentrate on color, value, proportion, and composition.
