Swing by GVA this Saturday between noon and 2 pm to purchase our wonderful sets of Holiday Cards. We will also have the all-occasion cards and photo cards available. Please bring correct change or check as we do not take credit cards. Christmas sets are $15 for 12 cards.
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. Sunday evening Governor Whitmer issued a new emergency order prohibiting indoor social gatherings with people outside one's household for 3 weeks beginning this Wednesday, November 18th. In keeping with the order, the GVA board members and sketch facilitators have decided to suspend all studio activities until Wednesday, December 9th for the safety of our members.
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!
During this difficult time, we are fortunate to have a passion. GVA has given us a fellowship where we can share our passion, but the current situation has made painting together, attending monthly activities, and having our usual fun times impossible. But NO! It isn't impossible! Time to get into social media, namely Facebook, to share what you are creating with the rest of us! When you have a Facebook account, you can ask to be invited to our new page, GVA Artists Hunkering DOWN and MAKING ART! Just go to that group page and apply to join.
