for the artist who has (almost) everything! Just in time for the holidays, for only $40, you can prepay a year’s GVA membership for a deserving artist and gift it—along with art supplies, if you’re feeling really generous. It’s like ordering flowers, only better: A certificate including the sender’s name will be customized with your personal message and mailed according to your instructions. The lucky recipient may use the certificate immediately and thereby be a member through August 31 or wait to activate the membership on September 1, 2019.
We celebrate the upcoming holiday season with our annual art competition, so be thinking about which piece you'll be contributing! One piece can be submitted...any subject matter or medium...and looking good in the appropriate frame/gallery wrap, ready to hang or display. All mediums welcome. More info to come, but December 1 is the date to bring your work to the studio.
Buying something from Amazon soon? Please remember to use AmazonSmile, and be sure to designate Grand Valley Artists as your recipient on AmazonSmile!
December is the month that we always have our competition, with prizes! Artists enter one of their favorite works, and the membership will choose their faves. Don't miss Critique night! You'll want to be there to submit YOUR vote!
GVA has been offered a great opportunity. We now fill their beautiful community room/parlor with our art. If you choose, you can sell your work, or you can note that it is "NFS" (not for sale). The church will keep a mere 15% of all sales. Ruth VanderMuelen and Judy Maggini will be displaying their work during the months of December and January, so stop in Monday thru Thursday during regular business hours. To show your work, contact Mary Marin at email@example.com and get on the calendar. We switch out the art every other month.
Be sure to swing by Bliss & Vinegar to see the works of DeLaine Klar 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!
