Special Announcement from GVA President Joanne Swann

We're taking additional baby steps toward fully opening the studio. Beginning Monday, May 17th, we will no longer require members to sign up in advance online to attend our Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday sketch sessions; plus, you won't need to sign a release form when you arrive.* We will ask you to wear a mask while in sketch unless everyone attending the session has been vaccinated and agrees to not wear them.

Note Cards by GVA Artists

Grand Valley Artists has put together three series of note card packages to sell at our various events and to our own members to help offset the loss of revenue from the pandemic-related cancellations of Reeds Lake Art Festival and our sketch sessions. Two sets of these cards are "all occasion" cards, blank inside, so suitable for birthdays, anniversaries, or just a friendly "hello".
